Mixed Reality (MR)

In a mixed (MR) or hybrid reality elements of both VR and AR are combined, so that virtual content is anchored to and interacts with the real-life environment. So – where in AR digital content remains static – virtual objects in MR can also interact with and influence the real world. Mixed reality technology can also understand the real world and tell e.g. whether a new (still virtual) machine would fit in a real production facility. In this sense, mixed reality is a more immersive and interactive augmented reality. The Microsoft Hololens is an example of a device enabling MR.
