Augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) are at the forefront of technology and offer brands and businesses unique ways to interact with their audience.
Whether it’s overlaying Pokemon in a real world environment on a mobile screen, placing your customers in a digitally constructed environment which can resemble anywhere you choose, real or otherwise or a mixture of both, AR,VR and MR are all immersive and exciting and the possibilities of how each technology can be used are endless.
What’s Augmented Reality (AR)?
AR is where a digital image, video or element is overlaid on a live view of the real world, usually via the camera on a smartphone. Great examples of VR that are used by mobile users across the world every day include the face filters found on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Pokemon Go also utilises AR technology.
What is Virtual Reality (VR)?
Whereas AR is partially digital, VR is totally immersive that takes you out of the physical world and transports you into a digital one using devices such as Oculus, HTC Vive, PSVR and Samsung VR.
The digital constructs can resemble real-life environments such as factories, workshops or your favourite holiday destination or alternatively they can be totally unique, bringing your imagination to life and allowing you to do impossible tasks such as flying alongside your favourite bird of prey or become a part of the world of your favourite adventure film.
What is Mixed Reality (MR)?
An MR experience uses both AR and VR as well as the real world to create a hybrid experience allowing users to interact with both real-world and digital objects.
