mixed reality

A type of augmented reality that combines fantasy with the real world. For example, whereas augmented reality (AR) goggles might display email or text messages, mixed reality can simulate total fiction such as a 3D game. In addition, the simulated objects can interact with the environment, such as a ball bouncing off the wall or new furniture rearranged in the room.

Unlike totally immersive virtual reality (VR) goggles, which require wearers to remain reasonably stationary, mixed reality and augmented reality users navigate their physical environment just like someone wearing eye glasses. The terms mixed and augmented reality are sometimes used synonymously. See Windows Mixed Reality, AR headset, augmented reality and virtual reality.
