Microsoft is talking about some aspects of the future of computing at Computex 2016 and one of those future aspects that the software giant is focusing on is mixed reality.

Mixed reality is a sort of interaction of virtual reality with the physical world to create virtual spaces and objects that users can manipulate with their hands.

Microsoft also notes that most of these devices lack the ability to mix real people, objects, and environments into the virtual world they show wearers.

This is where developers come in with Windows Holographic, which is coming to devices of all shapes and sizes to create immersive VR and untethered holographic computing.

Microsoft has invited OEM, ODM, and hardware partners to build PCs, display, accessories, and mixed reality devices based on the Windows Holographic platform.

Windows Holographic is already powering the Microsoft HoloLens and offers a holographic shell, interaction model, perception APIs and Xbox Live services.
