VRFocus’s Updated Glossary of Immersive Tech Terms #AR #VR
VRFocus want to help folks understand terms and concepts like Inside-out and Outside-in Tracking:
The world of immersive technology can be a daunting place full of confusing acronyms and tech lingo that only the most up-to-date enthusiast will understand. Last year VRFocus created a little glossary of the most used acronyms such as VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality) and many more. Well it’s come to our attention that an update of sorts is required, detailing some of the tech terms so widely used now-a-days without a thought to those who may not know what the heck is going on.
Companies come up with their own descriptions all the time, trying to describe a new technology with some fancy new PR term they’ve created. VRFocus isn’t interested in those, it’s the stuff that’s almost used everyday by either us or any other VR/AR technology writer.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
