Interaction Design

Virtual, Augmented and Cross Reality

"Cross-reality involves a ubiquitous mixed reality environment that comes from the fusion of a network of sensors and actuators (which collects and sends data related to the real world) with shared virtual worlds, using an augmented reality interface, where the exchange of information is bidirectional between the real and the virtual world." [ Using Augmented Reality Cognitive Artifacts in Education and Virtual Rehabilitation]
