Mixing the Real World with the Virtual World
Reality, virtual reality, augmented reality and now Windows mixed reality? Confused yet? Let’s try to de-mystify this. Think of the range of environments as a spectrum with reality at one end and virtual reality at the other end. The space in between where real and virtual environments mix is where you’ll find augmented and mixed reality. Mixed reality in short is the seamless blending of augmented and virtual reality together. Think of mixed reality as mixing real world with computer generated imagery. Imagine you’re in a room and your real table is replaced with a virtual desk. You no longer see your desk but you see a virtual one in the same space. Now that we got that out of the way, what do you need to experience a mixed reality environment?
- First you’ll need a HMD (head mounted display). The HMD is a display device that is worn on the head or an integrated part of a helmet. It has a small display for each eye along with headphones.
- For some HMDs you’ll also need a compatible computer to run it. We have a full line of gaming laptops and desktops that are compatible.
