Mixed Reality (MR )

The merging of  real  and  virtual worlds  to produce new environments and visualizations, where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. MR does not exclusively take place in either the physical or virtual world, but is a hybrid of  reality  and  virtual reality , encompassing both  augmented reality  and  augmented virtuality  via  immersive technology


Mixed reality has been used in applications across fields including art, entertainment, and military training.

Simulation-based learning

Moving from   e-learning  to s-learning, simulation-based learning includes VR-based training and interactive, experiential learning. This also includes software and display solutions with scalable licensed curriculum development model.

Military training

Combat reality is simulated and represented in complex, layered data through head-mounted displays.  Military training solutions are often built on   commercial off-the-shelf  (COTS) technologies. As of 2018, these are being used by both civilian and military law enforcement to train personnel in a variety of scenarios.  Mixed reality technologies have been used by the   United States Army Research Laboratory  to study how this stress affects   decision-making.

Remote working

Mixed reality allows a global workforce of remote teams to work together and tackle an organization's challenges. No matter where they are physically located, subjects can wear a headset and   noise-canceling headphones  and enter a collaborative, immersive virtual environment. As these applications can accurately translate in real time,   language barriers  become irrelevant. This process also increases flexibility. While many organizations still use inflexible models of fixed working time and location, there is evidence that people are more productive if they have greater autonomy over where, when, and how they work.
