Dell's $350 Visor Is A VR Headset You Can Flip Off

IFA 2017: Dell announces Inspiron 7000 laptops, new 2-in-1s, enhanced XPS 13

Company Dell introduced its first helmet of virtual reality.

Indeed, the laptop vendor claims that this new 8th-gen CPU (combined with the power mode) offers no less than a 44% performance boost over what Dell describes as "similarly configured systems" running Kaby Lake processors (based on the SYSmark 2014 SE benchmark). Instead, it supports the Windows Mixed Reality platform baked right into Windows 10 Creators Update, for both productive and entertainment experiences. What Dell also talked about was a little surprising: virtual reality. As we saw in October's presentation, you could shop online for furniture, and bring those items into the real world to see how they look in your home or office.

All of the Inspiron 7000 devices will be available on October 3; the laptops will start at $799.99, the 13-inch 2-in-1 will start at $879.99, and the 15-inch 2-in-1 will start at $849.99. It is also fitted with head and face padding and has been created to allow people who wear glasses to use it with minimal adjustments.

Are you looking forward to trying out Dell's Visor headset?

Currently, there's a pretty big gap between mobile VR, like Google's Daydream View and Samsung's Gear VR, and the high-end experiences of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The representative went on to explain that Dell's design keeps comfort and convenience in the forefront, evidenced by the flip-up display, ergonomic headband, and gratuitous face padding. Specifically, it's a processor change, as perfectly good computers from earlier in the year get an update to make them perfectly even better, and in line with the latest Intel hardware.

Dell has made a play for the burgeoning VR headset market with its new Visor headset and controller combo.

As expected there was the Inspiron and XPS laptops but what was interesting was the appearance of a new addition in the form of The Visor, Dell's first ever mixed reality headset, and the Inspiron 17 7000, the world's first 17-inch 2-in-1 convertible laptop.
