The difference between AR, MR and VR
A lot of people have heard of the terms Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR) and Virtual Reality (VR), but are not entirely sure what the differences between these technologies are. VR is a visualization technique where the user sees a virtual environment around them with which they can interact. During the use of VR, they can no longer see the real world.
With AR, users can see the real world with digital information portrayed on top of it. In general Augmented Reality can be achieved using glasses that contain a display or by projectors displaying information on surfaces.
MR is a combination of VR and AR, where the user can see a highly detailed and interactive virtual environment portrayed on top of the real world. The virtual objects can also become aware of the objects in the real world, making it seem like they are physically part of the real world.
Within the wiki we only cover AR and MR solutions since these tend to have more specific solutions and are less known than most VR solutions. When interested in VR solutions, most often it is sufficient to ask any 3D environment modeling company for the creation of a VR simulation. Luckily when comparing VR hardware, there are also already many sites available that make these comparisons like https://vr-compare.com/ and https://aniwaa.com/vr-ar/. When you have no idea how to get started with either AR, MR or VR, feel free to contact us at any point and we will help you to the best of our ability.
