Samsung's new mixed reality headset with anti-screen door tech launches today

In brief: Samsung's new mixed reality headset aims to eliminate the immersion-crushing screen door effect by diffusing light emitted from each pixel to fill in the areas around it.

In the year since Microsoft launched its Windows Mixed Reality program, headset sales haven't exactly been on fire.

Interested buyers can now buy the Windows Mixed Reality headset in the USA via Microsoft store and Samsung.com. "This headset deploys its cutting-edge display technology to fight irritating fixed-pattern noise for an enhanced MR experience". "This makes the spaces between pixels near impossible to see". Also, it will be available soon in countries such as South Korea, Hong Kong, China, and Brazil. That's double the pixel count of the original Odyssey's 615 PPI.

Samsung's new Windows Mixed Reality headset comes with an Anti-SDE (Screen-Door Effect) Display, aimed at mitigating a condition that can lead to mild dizziness and nausea. You get premium AKG-tuned audio with 360-degree spatial surround sound, built-in dual microphones that support Cortana, and 110 degrees field of view and a 90Hz refresh rate for the dual AMOLED displays. The headset weighs just 590 grams, with a wide eye box measuring 146mm.
