Mixed reality is Microsoft core competence and the next evolutionary step in computing, following mainframes, PCs and smartphones. Mixed reality is going mainstream for consumers and businesses. It frees us from screen-bound experiences by enabling instinctive interactions with data in our living spaces and with our friends. Hundreds of millions of online explorers around the world have experienced mixed reality through their handheld devices. Mobile AR currently offers the most mass-market mixed reality solutions in social media.
Users may not even realize that the AR filters they use on Instagram are mixed reality experiences. Windows Mixed Reality takes all of these user experiences to the next level with a combination of truly stunning holographic renderings of people, high-fidelity holographic 3D models, and the real world that surrounds them.
