Mixed Reality

You've seen the terms Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality thrown around - but what is Mixed Reality, and why is it perfect for your event?

Mixed reality (MR) is the next evolution in human, computer, and environment interaction - and unlocks possibilities that before now were restricted solely to our imaginations.

Mixed reality, sometimes referred to as hybrid reality, is the combination of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.

Mixed reality takes place not only in the physical world or the virtual world, but both!

These interactions mimic our natural behavior of interaction, such as objects getting bigger as you get closer and the changing of perspectives as you move around an object.

It is a mix of reality, virtual reality and augmented reality with the use immersive technology - made possible by advancements in computer vision, graphical processing power, display technology, and input systems across virtual and augmented reality.

The term mixed reality was originally introduced in a 1994 paper by Paul Milgram and Fumio Kishino, A Taxonomy of Mixed Reality Visual Displays - but the first immersive mixed reality system with immersive and fully-encompassing sight, sound, and touch was the Virtual Fixtures platform developed at the U.S. Air Force's Armstrong Laboratories in 1992.

Mixed Reality at Events

Mixed Reality takes the best part of reality, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to create a truly unmissable experience - one that you can utilise for your next event.

Mixed Reality allows you to experience with a variety of different products and layers within a presentation or event booth, rather than Virtual Reality that keeps your audience under a head set.

Mixed reality isn’t just for gamers and movie fans. The potential for events is equally extensive and just as exciting. We had a quick brainstorm and came up with a few ideas below:
