Virtual Reality gaming gets a lot of attention, but VR isn’t just for gaming, and HP is launching a new version of its Windows Mixed Reality Headset aimed at professionals. Surprisingly enough, it’s called the HP Windows Mixed Reality Headset Professional Edition, and it’s coming soon for $449.

For the most part, the new headset is identical to the company’s consumer version… but it has a hinged display that you can flip up to view the real world without removing the headset and removable cushions that are easy to clean, allowing multiple people to comfortably use the same headset without sharing sweat.

The headset features dual 2.9 inch, 1440 x 1440 pixel displays (for a combined resolution of 2880 x 1440), a 90 Hz refresh rate, two front-facing cameras, inside-out tracking, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0, and headset jacks, and wireless motion controllers.

HP is also releasing a new VR Launch Kit software for developers this spring.

The company is also updating its Z4 Workstation PC with new models that support Intel Xeon W and Core-X processors including up to the 18-core Intel Core i9-7980X processor. The workstation also supports dual graphics cards with up to two NVIDIA Quador P6000 or two Radeon WX9100 cards.
