Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside an experience.

  • Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are immersed and able to interact with 3D worlds.

  • Immersive devices. These are characterized by the device’s ability to create a sense of “presence” – hiding the physical world and replacing it with a digital experience.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory and olfactory.

Holographic devices. These are characterized by the device’s ability to place digital content in the real world as if it were really there.

Mixed Reality

Mixed Reality (MR) or polyplexity is used as an independent concept or to classify the spectrum of reality technologies, as referenced in the reality–virtuality continuum.

The term mixed reality was originally introduced in a 1994 paper by Paul Milgram and Fumio Kishino, “A Taxonomy of Mixed Reality Visual Displays.”
