Engineered with a flip-up visor for convenient transitions, it features well-cushioned head and face padding, thumbwheel band adjustment for personalized comfort, and smart weight balancing that takes pressure off the nose and cheeks.
 
The white finish is easy to clean and durable, and the thoughtful design extends to cable management that routes cords to the back of the headset for better freedom of movement.
 
Dell Visor takes advantage of the same technology used in the Microsoft HoloLens, including inside-out tracking cameras, with a 360-degree panoramic view. The headset itself is able to scan surroundings instead of satellite emitters positioned inside the room.
 
It’s future-proof tech extends to platform-agnostic communication, with the possibility of users interacting with owners of different MR headset brands down the road.
 
Dell Visor Controllers offer complete flexibility with 6 degrees of freedom of movement in a three-dimensional space. The Controllers allow users total control with haptic feedback, thumb stick and buttons fully tracked by sensors in the headset.
 
Available in the U.S. in the coming months for $349.99 (headset) and $99.99 (controllers) or $449.99 (headset and controllers kit) on Dell.com. The Dell Visor will also be available at Microsoft and select Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com in the coming months.
