When talking to developer audiences, emphasizing this depth and variety and encouraging them to think of the full range of scenarios makes a lot of sense. The app's primary trademark was its virtual online events, which featured standup comedy and talks with celebrities such as Reggie Watts, Al Roker, and Bill Nye. Augmented reality, or AR, projects digital images into real-life scenes usually viewed through a camera lens. All Windows Mixed Reality headsets coming this holiday are now available for pre-order.

Llamas, however, warned that Microsoft's unusual Windows Mixed Reality nomenclature may leave consumers disillusioned and confused, leading to a later backlash.
