Virtuality Continuum

The virtuality continuum is a scale of realities, stretching from a pure virtual reality at one end, to a pure physical reality at the other end, with a continuous scale of augmented realities in between. First introduced in 1994, in the paper ?Augmented Reality: A class of displays on the reality-virtuality continuum? by the four authors Paul Milgram, Haruo Takemura, Akira Utsumi, and Fumio Kishino, the concept of a virtuality continuum has become integral to cataloging various attempts at augmented, virtual and mixed reality.
