What is Mixed Reality?

19 Aug 2020

Mixed Reality (MR), sometimes referred to as Hybrid Reality, is an interface that combines both elements of physical and digital environments to enable real-time interaction between the two.

Different to Virtual Reality (VR), where the user is engaged in a digital experience, Mixed Reality is often used closely with Augmented Reality (AR), where both realities set a virtual object in a physical field. Augmented Reality layers the digital object onto the physical one, whereas Mixed Reality builds a space for the two elements to interact.

Some Mixed Reality designs use avatars, holograms and images. Other designs stimulate a more advanced experience using senses such as taste, touch and smell.
