So VR is "mixed reality" now? That's a new one, LOL! Why oh why do marketing people need to keep coming up with new terms for old stuff? This looks like a cool toy though, in spite of the silly marketing.

Mixed reality is different, as it can be used to show images of the real world and augment it. (IE a mixture or reality and Virtual reality).

Not sure how much the mixed reality thing will be used in practice, but it is interesting tech.

Ahh cool, I learned something new today. Sounds like an interesting concept, assuming the execution is done well.

While you're right about Mixed Reality, these headsets are PURE VR-Headsets, so no images from the outer world will be captured and visible. The name probably only derived from MS's Hololens, which was a REAL Mixed Reality headset.

Also, all those headsets are the same on the hardware level, only the name and designs differ with offers from Acer, Asus and so on.
