Mixed Reality is the latest generation of virtual reality system. It basically merges real world to virtual or vice-versa to produce realistic virtual environment and visual effects. It is a variant to Augmented Reality but the idea is very different, the idea is that a user can see real world like an AR with a virtual world like in VR and we can treat the virtual world like a real world. This new idea is also its key characteristic which makes it very different and unique from other technologies.
