Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality & Mixed Reality seem to be hot buzzwords which you all might have heard before. These three types of reality are ruling the technology world and are nothing less than magic. But did you know the fundamental differences between the three? Let us first understand all three types of realities before knowing about Azure Mixed Reality.
Virtual Reality (VR):
You might have come across 3D tours, 3D maps, 3D movies or VR games like Dead Trigger, BAMF, and Chair in a Room. All these require a VR headset which replaces the real world with the virtual world making your brain feel as if it is at the point of action. It is a form of mental teleportation. Virtual reality is a computer-generated simulation, utilized by gamers, teachers, 3D architects, real estate agents, astronauts, etc.
Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Galaxy VR are some of the VR systems.
Augmented Reality (AR):
Augmented Reality sits between the spectrum of reality and virtual reality. For example, you might have heard about the car and helmets offering Head-Up display allowing you to see the navigation, driving indicators, street names, the speed displayed directly over the world in front of you without getting distracted of the sight of the road. This doesn’t transport you to another world, but instead, it is an enhancement of your real world with a set of magical virtual objects in it. Some other examples you might have heard about are Pokémon Go game, snapshot lens face filters.
Google Glass, Sony SmartEyeGlass, Everysight Raptor are some of the AR systems.
You must have got some idea about VR & AR by now, what is mixed reality then?
Imagine if you could travel across the world without being physically present there. What if neither language nor distance mattered to you? What if technology could help you be anywhere you needed to be & speak any language you wanted? Well, you can. The power of Azure Mixed Reality & Azure AI services makes this possible by creating an indeed game-changing experience.
Mixed Reality (MR):
This is often referred to as hybrid reality, producing a new environment and visualization where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real-time. In mixed reality, digital information is represented by holograms- objects made of light & sound that appear in the space around you.
In movies like ‘Spiderman-Far Away From Home’ and ‘Iron Man’ the characters were shown creating holographic illusions and interacting with holograms.
Azure Mixed Reality:
With Azure Mixed Reality, you can start building secure, collaborative mixed reality solutions using intelligent services, best-in-class hardware, and cross-platform tools. It helps people create, learn, and collaborate more effectively by capturing and surfacing digital information within the context of their work and world.
For example, you are designing a new layout for the client. What if a client can also participate and edit or view the layout. Well, this is possible with the help of spatial anchors service, which allows participation of different participants from different devices.
Some other example use cases enabled by Spatial Anchors include:
