Mixed Reality and the Next Generation of Communications
IEEE Transmitter - May 2018

"Mixed reality represents the blending of the real world and the virtual world, creating immersive experiences where 3D digital images can be represented alongside physical objects. Unlike virtual reality, mixed reality provides overlays on what you’re seeing, rather than a full simulation.
