Mixed Reality Technology



What is Mixed Reality Technology?

Mixed Reality (MR) technology combines the physical and digital worlds to create new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real-time. It merges elements of both Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) to provide a more immersive experience.


Why did Apple refer to its Vision Pro as a “spatial computing” device?

Apple branded its Vision Pro as a “spatial computing” device to emphasize its capability to create immersive experiences that go beyond traditional AR and VR classifications. The term “spatial computing” is used to denote a more integrated approach to interacting with digital environments, utilizing hand- and eye-tracking features among others.


How did the concept of Mixed Reality start?

The concept of Mixed Reality started in the late 1960s with pioneering computer scientist Ivan Sutherland, who, with his student, designed the first-ever head-mounted display (HMD), a precursor to modern MR technology. This technology was initially conceptualized to enhance perception and interaction with digital information.


How has Mixed Reality technology evolved over the years?

Over the years, Mixed Reality technology has evolved from basic head-mounted displays to sophisticated systems used in various fields like manufacturing, military, and entertainment. Developments have included better visual fidelity, more intuitive user interfaces, and the integration of real-time data into the user’s field of vision.


What are some of the challenges faced by Mixed Reality technology?

Mixed Reality technology faces challenges such as high costs, limited content availability, privacy concerns, and the need for significant computational power. There’s also the challenge of user acceptance, as wearing headsets for prolonged periods can be uncomfortable.


How is Mixed Reality technology used in industries?

Mixed Reality technology is used in industries for training, simulation, maintenance, and design visualization. For example, companies like Boeing have utilized MR for training shop floor workers, enhancing efficiency and reducing errors by overlaying digital information onto the real world.


What distinguishes Apple’s Vision Pro from other mixed reality headsets?

Apple’s Vision Pro distinguishes itself through its high price, advanced hand- and eye-tracking features, immersive apps, and a unique operating system (visionOS) that uses the user’s gaze as input. It represents a significant leap in headset technology by combining AR, VR, and more into a comprehensive spatial computing experience.


Why is there a pushback against categorizing MR devices strictly as AR or VR?

The pushback against categorizing Mixed Reality devices strictly as AR or VR stems from the desire to recognize the unique capabilities of these technologies beyond their traditional definitions. MR devices offer a blend of both worlds, and terms like “spatial computing” better capture the full range of their functionalities.
