Mixed reality - merging two worlds

Canon is launching MREAL - an imaging science breakthrough that seamlessly combines the virtual world of computer-generated imagery (CGI) with a real-world environment.

Mixed Reality brings users into a 3-D world where - with unprecedented realism - they can walk through a scene, survey a landscape and interact with an object or environment. However, MREAL is not a consumer gadget. With a price tag around $125,000, it is targetting designers and manufacturers.

With MREAL, a design team can examine virtual models from nearly any angle. to see how components manufactured at different locations will fit together, for example. It is also possible to evaluate intricate design details, such as how light might reflect off the interior trim of a new car.
