Microsoft announced at its Windows 10 event that several of its hardware partners will be releasing virtual reality headsets to coincide with the launch of the Creators Update. Partners include HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus and Acer and all VR headsets will come with inside out six degrees of freedom sensors, which Microsoft says are the world's first.

By fitting the sensors, it's claimed you'll be able to experience virtual reality without the need for a separate room or a "complicated setup". The headsets will be available from $299 when they're released.

The VR headsets will work with HoloTour, the software included with the HoloLens headset that transports you to countries and places around the world. From within Microsoft's virtual world you can create your own space, and the example given at the Windows 10 event showed a representative having a screen dedicated to sports and a selection of his most used apps on another wall. 

Microsoft's new virtual reality headsets are being marketed as Creators Update accessories and will be available from early 2017.
