The difference between AR/MR glasses


AR glasses and MR glasses are two different wearable technologies with some important differences in the interaction between the virtual and real world:

AR glasses:

The main goal of AR glasses is to overlay virtual information on the real world and provide users with enhanced information about their surrounding environment. Users can still see and interact with the real world, but AR glasses superimpose virtual elements on the user's field of vision through projections, displays, or transparent screens.

AR glasses usually focus on providing functions such as information, navigation, virtual display, and augmented reality games. They focus more on the overlay and display of virtual content.

MR glasses (Mixed Reality Glasses):

MR glasses interact virtual and real elements with each other, creating a hybrid environment between virtual and reality. Users can not only see virtual elements, but also interact with them and integrate them into the real world.

The goal of MR glasses is to integrate virtual objects or information with the real environment to create a new interactive experience. This means users can manipulate virtual objects, play interactive games or use virtual tools in the real world.

In general, AR glasses are mainly used for augmented reality, superimposing virtual information on the real world, but the user's focus is still on reality. MR glasses go a step further and create a mixed reality environment so that virtual and real elements can interact with each other, and users can interact more actively with the virtual world. While the two technologies overlap in some applications, their goals and ways of interacting are different, so specific uses and needs need to be considered when choosing glasses.
