Mixed-Reality Gaming: Evolution in Entertainment
The rise of smartphones, tablets and social gaming has led to an explosion of mobile gamers. Just as Angry Birds and Farmville took mainstream gaming away from the console, the rise of mixed and augmented reality – where virtual worlds interact with physical objects – is already forming the next epoch of play. As an emerging area of gaming, mixed reality finds a new load of challenges for both the creators and the user as a consumer. Falling within a spectrum between the real world and digital world, mixed reality is an undiscovered spot that will quickly find its way on the rise.
