Mixed Reality (MR) is an umbrella term that refers to technologies that combine the physical and digital worlds. There are three main types of mixed reality:
- Augmented Reality (AR) which adds digital information, such as images, text, or 3D models, to the user’s view of the real world.
- Virtual Reality (VR) which creates a fully-immersive digital environment that the user can interact with.
- Augmented Virtuality (AV) which is a blend of both AR and VR where a user is in a physical environment, but with the ability to see and interact with virtual objects in the real world.
Mixed reality technology can be used in a variety of fields such as gaming, education, medicine, design, and more. It allows users to interact with digital content in a more natural and intuitive way, making it an attractive technology for various applications.
