Virtual Reality (VR)
When you as the user put on a VR headset (including headphones), you are detached from reality and become completely immersed in a virtual 3D world. The gaming industry is investing heavily in the development of VR, primarily because the technology is now powerful enough to create it. The most popular VR headsets include the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.
Augmented Reality (AR)
A good example of this is the head-up display that some car makers offer you, where a 2D image is projected in the driver’s field of vision. Another popular example is the Google Glass, which was launched a few years ago. These glasses are still in use at many companies (especially in the production department), with a new Glass for Work being launched recently.
Mixed Reality (MR)
At the current time, there is really only a single manufacturer who is offering a MR device and that is Microsoft with its HoloLens. This projects an image for both eyes onto transparent lenses, which results in a realistic implementation of 3D images in the real world. This amazing technology is something where you can really say ‘seeing is believing’. So, to experience it for yourself, please contact one of our account managers, who will be happy to let you try out the HoloLens. Manufacturer Magic Leap has also had a HoloLens in development for some time now, for which expectations are high.
