Mixed Reality – The Infinite Cliff House

This one really tests your GPU (and sorry to say that while video is on, mine fails badly!)

It’s a great way of finding out what is “new to you” in the Mixed Reality Environment:-

I hope that there will be options in the future so that you can target your specific interests and whether you are interested in 2d apps for pinning and playing within your environment or just “Full VR” Apps (or both) such that when you click on the bag you get a selection of new Apps that match those interests.  Of course we are some way off that at the moment as far as full screen VR apps are concerned (unless Microsoft taps into the Steam menu?
