(Alphr.com) Extended reality, or XR is a term describes the entire spectrum of reality, from the virtual to the physical, from augmented reality to augmented virtuality, virtual reality and everything in between. The arrival of XR represents the collapse of the virtuality/reality divide. Within the new XR framework, virtuality and reality are no longer opposites. Neither are digital and biological. XR implies a far more complex relationship between these things – one in which virtuality can make things real.
A significant part of the XR revolution will be the slow but sure realisation by players in the market that some kind of collaboration, such as knowledge-sharing, is crucial – and overdue.
