We’ve entered a new age where the digital and physical collide. Mixed Reality (MR) devices like Hololens and Magic Leap enable us to alter the way we perceive and interact with the world around us. Creators now have the ability to transform the mundane into the magical and augment our reality with both the fantastical and the practical. This discussion will delve into the challenges and possibilities of creating for MR while looking at how other emerging technologies like AI, narrative engines, next-gen GPS, and VR will combine to create a powerful toolset for the next generation of memorable, immersive creative experiences.
