Watch 3D Movies on ASUS Windows Mixed Reality Headset

ASUS's first mixed reality headset has plenty of pleasant surprises: light, powerful and fun to use, it's well worth a look. Most of the technology inside is common across all of the manufacturers, but ASUS has worked hard to make its offering unique where it can. For example, it used a polygonal-art covering for the visor, ensuring that it looks much nicer than, say, Acer's View Master-esque offering. Similarly, ASUS's headset feels much lighter than its rivals' models, and the company included an antimicrobial cushion inside.
