However and as expected, the US company, which is not directly marketed a device but will distribute the platform from the middle of the year? 2017, because it has devised a system that can create virtual reality helmets that include various computer components as a fully independent device. So, the future of virtual reality looks better every day.
Furthermore, the Intel CEO, Brian Krzanich said onstage that “anyone can combine the Project Alloy hardware with Windows Holographic platform”.
