A real sense of freedom that doesn’t cost the Earth

With Lenovo Explorer, you’re free to move in and around a 3.5 m x  3.5 m space. Hop, skip, jump, or dive and Lenovo Explorer tracks your every movement with superior fidelity, spatial awareness, and fluid tracking—without the need for external sensors.

In the past, a virtual experience might have been a costly one involving an expensive headset and a top-of-the-range computer. Now, with a Lenovo Explorer headset and a modern PC, you can savor the best of virtual and mixed reality for a fraction of the price.

New ways to work, play, and explore

With Lenovo Explorer, there are four ways to enhance your virtual and mixed reality experience:

  • Motion controllers let you embrace Windows Mixed Reality—from picking up and crafting tools and weapons in Minecraft to dragging or resizing Powerpoint slides and images with your hands.
  • Your keyboard and mouse enable you to work and play in a digital space—access Microsoft Office Suite or watch movies in your own virtual world.
  • Your Xbox® controller gives you more power—choose the best, most comfortable way for you to play and be entertained.
  • Ask Cortana, your truly intelligent virtual and personal assistant—from providing answers to taking orders, setting reminders and undertaking tasks, Cortana helps to simplify your day.
