How to Setup and Pair Mixed Reality Motion Controllers in Windows 10

Mixed reality blends real-world and virtual content into hybrid environments where physical and digital objects coexist and interact.

Windows Mixed Reality is designed to work best with mixed reality motion controllers. Motion controllers are hardware accessories that offer precise and responsive tracking of movement in your field of view using the sensors in the immersive headset, meaning there is no need to install hardware on the walls in your space. These motion controllers will offer the same ease of setup and portability as Windows Mixed Reality immersive headsets. For Windows Mixed Reality immersive headsets, motion controllers are the primary way that users will take action in their world.

Motion controllers use Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to your PC. If your PC doesn’t have Bluetooth 4.0 , you can buy a USB 4.0 Bluetooth micro adapter and plug that into the PC.

This tutorial will show you how to setup and pair your motion controllers for Windows Mixed Reality on your Windows 10 PC.
