Bangalore, Sep. 11 2017: Microsoft has been evangelizing something it calls Mixed Reality -- a sort of combo of AR and VR. 
The  fourth free upgrade to Microsoft's Windows 10 operating  system  will be available for download, starting October 17 -- and  the biggest change  is the inclusion of a new platform for  Mixed Reality.  At the IFA tech show in Berlin last week, Microsoft's hardware partners like Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo previewed  their own  VR/AR headsets which will work with the Windows 10 "Fall  Creators" update  next month. These  headsets are expected to cost around Rs 20,000 to 30,000) so it remains to be seen how they compete with  upcoming  AR systems  from Google/Android and Apple/iOS that are embedded into smart phones and don't need extra  hardware.
