Meant to help push AR and VR into the mainstream, Windows 10 Creators Update includes software components that provide convincing virtual experiences on Windows PCs with modest specifications.

Microsoft planted the seeds for affordable augmented-reality (AR) and virtual-reality (AR) experiences with this spring's release of the Windows 10 Creators Update.

Han spoke about a diverse mix of Windows 10 devices that take advantage of new capabilities such as enhanced inking, built-in game broadcasting, and advanced security all captured in attractive hardware designs. Han also showcased OEMs' Windows 10 devices tuned for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update from Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Panasonic, Samsung and Toshiba.

Acer, ASUS, HP, Lenovo, and Dell partnered with Microsoft to create mixed reality headsets that will use Microsoft's platform to enable a consistent UI and UWP app platform for developers. Later this year, PC owners who pony up a little extra cash for a new Windows-compatible mixed-reality headset will finally get to see (and hear) what the fuss is about.

Current users need to be connected to the cloud at all times because they need to share experience across screens and leverage the latest network technology. When it works - think the Microsoft Surface, Surface Book, HoloLens or Surface Pen - the approach can spark new categories of popular devices from a range of vendors. ASUS, HP, Lenovo, VAIO and Xiaomi have already confirmed that they'll be launching devices based on the concept. These new devices will feature Windows 10, with always-on LTE connectivity and great battery life.

Check out Microsoft's blog for the full-detailed devices that Microsoft's partners announced.

Backing up Parker with an implicit message that Microsoft OEM partners are on board and working with Microsoft to jointly make and flood new technology niches, Microsoft's Peter Han took the stage in Taipei to show new devices from a variety of vendors.
