Mixed

Unlike augmented reality, mixed reality has the advantage of being able to integrate and interact with your surroundings, it tries to combine the best aspects of both virtual reality and augmented reality. Mixed reality is a marketing term being promoted by Magic Leap, Microsoft, and a few smaller firms (Fig. 8.10).

Mixed reality (MR), also called hybrid reality, is the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. It tries to combine the best aspects of both virtual reality and augmented reality.

The good news, bad news is that augmented reality is, or will be, in everything and as such there is the need to identify which implementation you are referring to.

Ambient Light

When images and information are superimposed on one’s view of their surroundings, the amount of the environment’s light will affect the viewability of that information. Therefore, an ambient light sensor is necessary to measure that background light and drive the brightness of the augmented reality device’s display when there is more light and dim them when there is less.

The ambient light conditions vary widely from indoor to outdoor use. This can have a profound effect on the display requirements so the image will show up against the real world.
