Why Mixed Reality Toys are better than Virtual Reality Toys?
Imagine your kids experiencing a surreal and interactive playtime that incorporates his/her own toys or creations in a digital environment. Yes, you heard that right. It’s time to say bye-bye to virtual reality and welcome mixed reality.
Gone are the days when you were required to buy a whole lot of complex VR headsets to give your child a virtual reality gaming experience. Through mixed reality, your child can experience the latest technological innovation by simply using a smart device such as smartphones or tablets. Yes, that’s all it requires. Further sophisticated MR games may require a hololens or transparent goggles.
Mixed reality technology blends the real world with virtual elements. You not only interact but also can manipulate these elements thus giving an extended real environment experience. Mixed reality technology can blur the lines between old school play and digital play. How? Let us explain.
Mixed reality toys vs Virtual reality toys
Virtual reality immerses you into a completely digital environment. Here, you remain detached to the real world. Virtual reality toys come with a head-mounted display and haptic controllers connected to the PC. Players can interact and play only in the virtual environment.
Mixed reality renders deeper and immersive augmented reality experience. Here a virtual environment is overlaid on the real-world environment. You can then interact and manipulate with these virtual elements anchored in a real-world scenario.
Kids may love the idea of entering into a whole new digital world through VR toys. But they will be far more excited to push past AR or VR by blending their real-world object with virtual elements. MR toys surely make virtual reality more believable. Your child will certainly prefer their own toys coming into life, telling stories/ playing games with them rather than shutting themselves up in a virtual environment. Won’t you agree?
We know how our kids love to be around smart devices. Through Mixed reality toys, you can make sure to give them a quality screen time, where they also experience physical play while in a digital environment.
