Extended Reality (XR) is a term used to describe immersive technologies that can merge the physical and virtual worlds. XR technologies either provide a simultaneous blend of the virtual and real worlds, like augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR), or they are a fully immersive experience like virtual reality (VR).
There are many practical applications for extended reality. Just a sampling of use cases include: entertainment, education, real estate, marketing, retail, medicine, and remote work – though the list is not inclusive. The possibility of future applications is really only limited to the imagination.
