The emergence of IoT which is nothing but a network of physical objects that can include vehicles, buildings or any other items that are attached to sensors, software or any electronic item, so that these objects can accumulate and exchange data. Through IoT, internet connectivity to various devices can be provided and the user can exercise control over devices, be it a laptop or mobile to any other physical objects including communication with these devices through internet. This technology is considered to be a major game changer globally. Mixed reality glasses are aimed at bringing in ergonomics to user experience which aims at optimizing user efficiency at work. Apart from that, the immersive feature of these glasses are helping improve the accuracy of the users by letting them focus on intricate and minute details for obtaining better results.

Multiple Uses In Various Industries

There are a lot of opportunities for various consumer-end industries who can take advantage of MR technology that has considerable potential for being applied for a variety of purposes. For instance, an image drawn by any individual on a piece of paper can be translated by MR glasses into a 3D image and project how it would appear on screen. MR smart glasses can in a way provide a proper perspective for the consumer, as it can help the user visualize in order to understand how a particular product or object would appear and what are the benefits and problems that could arise out of its usage. These glasses will find their applications in interior design works, where there would be various minute details that may be required to be observed by users.

Availability Of Alternative Technology

With this technology, a 3D mapping of a specified area can be performed. In a virtual world environment, objects are displayed through a device, but they are not actually present. With the help of such a device that displays objects that actually do not exist, the users communicate through a technological interface. Mixed reality provides the platform for the user to communicate with both virtual and real objects by anchoring virtual objects with the real world. This technology can be adopted as an alternative by any industry that has already adopted either virtual reality or augmented reality technology.  


Mixed reality glasses are highly expensive and are only targeted at premium customers who can afford to bear the cost of these high priced smart glasses. Moreover, being a new technology, there is a lack of general awareness about the product. Additionally, as the technology is only at its infant stage, the application of these mixed reality glasses for commercial uses have not yet seen the light of the day, owing to the novelty value that they carry along with them.
