This gadget enables the users to mix the virtual world with the real one. HoloLens embraces virtual reality and augmented reality to create a new mixed reality. Virtual reality immerses user in a simulated world and augmented reality overlays digital information on top of user’s real world. By understanding user’s environment, mixed reality enables holograms to look and sound like they’re part of user’s world.
