Rapid Developments in Media Tech Are Unavoidable: Most people like some form of media entertainment: movies, books, radio, games, etc. Big tech is attempting to “enhance” and “personalize” all media experiences so as to increase their value (profits), and to justify the need for the consumers to all upgrade their devices (more profits). You will need some basic vocabulary to understand the “improvements” big tech is just now beginning to offer us.
The Important Difference Between Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality.
Put simply, the difference between virtual, augmented, and mixed reality is:
-Virtual reality (VR): A fully immersive experience where a user leaves the real-world environment behind to enter a fully digital environment via VR headsets.
-Augmented reality (AR): An experience where virtual objects are superimposed onto the real-world environment via smartphones, tablets, heads-up displays, or AR glasses. The Pokemon Go game was a test to see public reaction to AR, it was wildly successful.
-Mixed reality (MR): A step beyond augmented reality where the virtual objects placed in the real world can be interacted with and respond as if they were real objects.
See some amazing examples of AR in the video below. Full article: Source Article
