Microsoft announced the addition of the latest build of Windows 10 Insider Preview Flashlight, which allows the user to return to the real world without removing the VR-headset. With the help of a video camera connected to the controller, a picture of what is happening around is broadcast to the screen with some delay.

To see a picture of the real world, you can use the Start menu, voice command, or keyboard shortcut.

In addition to Flashlight, in the assembly of Windows 10 Insider Preview there are other interesting features:

  • extended "emotional" language Emoji 11;
  • Improved game panel;
  • timeliness of system updates.

The company also fixed a number of problems with the previous version.

In April 2018, Microsoft introduced another development that allows you to connect the virtual and real worlds - a flexible pad Project Zanzibar. With the help of the new gadget, you can register touch, read objects, detect hand movements in the air, and transfer electrical energy to other devices.
