THE RISE OF TECHNOLOGY - AR, VR AND MR

Published on Aug 3, 2022



Immersive technologies create experiences by merging the real world with a digital or simulated reality. Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) are the three types of fastest-growing immersive technologies today. This technology is gaining momentum, transforming daily and helping us reimagine the future.

To put it in a nutshell,

VR = uses real headsets to create a simulated environment and helps an individual to immerse into it to experience an entirely different reality. VR in real life (other than gaming): ClassVR, Facebook Horizon, VR360.

AR = computer-generated augmentation on top of reality. AR in real life (other than gaming): Google Maps, Google Lens, Snapchat filters, Facebook AR Maps.

MR = the best of both VR and AR by blending the real world with virtual reality enabling an individual to interact with virtual objects. MR is real life: Microsoft Hololens.
