While most people are familiar with Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), there’s actually a third category of tech-based immersive experience called Mixed Reality (MR). MR occurs when people interact with and manipulate both physical and virtual items plus environments using next-generation sensing and imaging technologies.
In other words, it’s a cool technology that allows you to interact with the virtual world while still being able to see the world around you. If you’re a tech-savvy individual and want to take one step into the future today, then we’ve got a cool deal from the PopSci Shop just for you.
