Mixed Reality (MR) merges real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. For example, Microsoft Hololens augments reality through 3D holograms, enabling device users to interact with these holograms via hand gestures or voice commands.
Tech giants like Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, and Google see significant potential in the XR (Extended Reality) space and have already launched their toolkits and devices in the market. XR technology is becoming mainstream now, and the developer ecosystem is also evolving rapidly. These new ways of interacting with an application create an entirely new immersive experience for the end user and opens up new possibilities in product development.
In this Cafe session from GlobalLogic’s Mobile Practices Team, we introduce the landscape of Extended Reality, basic concepts of Mixed Reality, and how to create a professional app for Hololens and Unity.
