Microsoft has recently started referring to its holographic vision as “Windows Mixed Reality.” In presser announcements over the last few days, particularly to announce new hardware and a new Windows Mixed Reality Dev Kit from Acer, Microsoft has seemingly adjusted its approach for its augmented reality push.
Reaching out to Microsoft, the company supplied the following statement:
Microsoft renamed “Windows Holographic” to “Windows Mixed Reality” to be more encompassing of the company’s broader vision for the platform. We’re unifying the mixed reality ecosystem around a platform that enables shared experiences and interoperability between headsets. By opening up the Windows Mixed Reality platform to the industry at large, we anticipate the growth of holographic apps will make for stronger experiences and better devices for everyone.
