The fall Windows 10 update will include features for playing games and watching video in the realm of "mixed reality", the melding of the artificial with things that are actually happening around us. Story Remix brings memories, photos and videos together to create stories with a soundtrack, theme and cinematic transitions.
Called Xamarin Live Player, the app allows developers to link their iOS or Android phones with Visual Studio on Windows or Mac and then test the.NET mobile applications they're building in a matter of seconds. A single Windows 10 S laptop can serve as a safe environment for learning both Microsoft's operating system and Linux - how cool is that?
Another feature will let users start working on a document on a Windows 10 PC and pick up where they left off on a rival phone. PUWILO is perhaps the first big use case where developers of consumer apps will have good reason to use Graph.

It uses technologies such as Timeline, which visually displays what a user was doing previously, allowing them to easily hop back into files, apps and websites as if it was real time.
Where this really comes into its own is when Cortana is added into the mix.
There were iPhones on the stage here at Build. If you're not confident of handling that type of situation, it's probably better to stay on Windows 10 Creators Update until the Fall Creators Update drops in September.
Microsoft'snew controller will work without requiring the placement of motion sensors in a room to trace a user's movements. The feature is powered by SwiftKey, so you'll need to have that app installed in order to make use of this nifty feature.
To that end, the company is introducing a new motion controller created to work with mixed reality apps.
