I love the term mixed reality which is Microsoft’s word for their augmented reality adventures. They always have to be different but really the terms are synonymous with a whole lot of fun. Microsoft has developed a system and content that is compatible with several manufacturers of Virtual Reality headsets.
Here are the major manufacturers and the latest model VR headsets that work with the Microsoft or Windows Mixed Reality. These devices are really gaining in popularity and maybe soon everyone will be wearing a 3D headset instead of glued to their smart phones. This is where the mixed comes into play. If we are going to use these headsets in day to day life, we need to also be able to see the real world, mixed with the virtual world.
