Immerse yourself in a whole new world

When you want to blur the line between the real world and the digital world, grab yourself an HP Mixed Reality Headset. This revolutionary device allows you to play games, scroll through apps, and watch other media content within a virtual environment.

With a 1440 x 1440 resolution per eye and up to 90 Hz refresh rate, every pixel will be so crystal clear you’ll forget you’re even wearing a headset. Experience a liberating range of movement thanks to 6 degrees of motion tracking that don’t require external sensors to respond to your commands.

Completely portable, you have the power to dive into the digital world anywhere, at any time. Without any additional software to download, you can simply plug-in and play without being bogged down by a complicated set up process. A 2-in-1 cable pairs together HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.0 inputs so you won’t get tangled up in cords as you move around to explore your new reality.

Currently still only offered in a developer edition, the HP Mixed Reality Headset is ideal for game and web professionals who want to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

Enhanced gameplay with a comfortable construction

The Windows Mixed Reality Headset combines a double-padded headband, an easy adjustment knob, and a front-hinged display so your virtual experience is never interrupted. When you’re fully immersed in a first-person shooter game or captivated by the latest blockbuster film, you’ll love the non-intrusive headset that blocks out the rest of the world.

Unlike other mixed and virtual reality headsets, this innovative gadget uses molded foam to contour to your face and block out errant light that could distract from your game play. Two front-facing cameras mimic the natural placement of the eyes, and an ample nose slot delivers a comfortable fit for a wide variety of faces. A 95-degree field of view gives you an easy vantage point in any media you want to engage with.

Thanks to this wide visual field, you never need to uncomfortably crane your neck to take advantage of this innovative technology. Operate at a higher level when you include controllers with your headset. The ergonomic design fits perfectly into the palm of your hand and intuitive buttons allow you to click through tasks with ease.

Rule your world with intelligent operating systems

Before diving into the stunning world of HP mixed reality, it’s recommended to have a PC with Windows 10. Enable Developer Mode to truly take advantage of this gadget’s full potential.

For both laptops and desktops, an Intel® Core™ i7 processor or AMD® Ryzen™ 7 1700 processor will make your experience smooth and lag-free.

Graphic processing unit requirements differ depending upon your setup. For laptops, an NVIDIA® GTX 965Ml or AMD Radeon™ RX 480M is suitable. When it comes to desktops, opt for an NVIDIA GTX 980/1060 or AMD Radeon™ RX 480 GPU.

16GB of RAM will load programs in the blink of an eye and enable you to multitask like never before. To enable accessory connectivity, set up Bluetooth technology to effortlessly connect all your devices to the headset.

Expand your stash of virtual reality systems

While the HP Mixed Reality Headset doesn’t necessarily require a high-end gaming PC to experience the magic of the virtual world, it never hurts to stock up on other virtual reality tech.

With an HP OMEN virtual reality PC, you can jump into action and embark on an interactive adventure in no time. Equip your rig with an HP OMEN computer outfitted with the most powerful processors and advanced graphic cards to handle complex VR performance.

In collaboration with HTC and Oculus, HP® brings fans of the virtual realm the most ground-breaking gear to satiate their desire for interactive game play. Encounter incredible visual fidelity that changes your perception of what’s real and what isn’t. Oculus Rift and HTC Vive goggles place you squarely in the center of all your virtual interactions.

Not to mention, the sleek black and red design of the HP OMEN series delivers a seriously cool sci-fi aesthetic that any tech lover will appreciate.
