Wearable Mixed & Augmented Reality
Mixed Reality (MR) is the fusion of real and computer-generated elements towards the production of new hybrid - synthetic - environments. Despite the fact that, in the past, MR and the encompassing notions of Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) focused primarily to the sense of vision, today’s MR systems can employ all our senses and offer us capabilities through services that are perceivable but not necessarily vision-specific. The establishment of cloud services, along with the recent popularity of wearable/mobile devices, contributes towards this paradigm shift, which is the focus of this theme.
