“People shouldn't look at science fiction like they look at "real" fiction. They shouldn't expect that this is what the future is going to look like. Science fiction authors are sort of charlatans; we come up with a few ideas and we make a living off of that.”
“ Mixed reality (MR) refers to the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualisations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. A mix of reality includes augmented reality, augmented virtuality and virtual reality.”
“ Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment whose elements are merged with (or augmented by) virtual computer-generated imagery - creating a mixed reality.”
To what extend can we replace the physical sources by virtual sources using the technology, and still endue the same perceptual, cognitive, the emotional experience that we have on the real world condition.
