Microsoft has announced that it’s bringing a new ‘View Mixed Reality’ feature to Windows 10 later this year.

In a demonstration at its live New York City event this morning, the company revealed that Windows 10 users can create 3D objects in 3D Paint and augment into the real world. This can be done with any Windows 10 laptop that features a webcam.

The 3D paint-created content is also available for use on Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality devices, set for release later this year.

Microsoft has previously released its HoloLens headset, which is dedicated to mixed reality content, but this is the first time the technology has been built directly into a Windows 10 laptop.
