HTC shows off their Vive mixed reality demo. Senior Manager and product marketing VR JB McCree said that it's the closest people can get to seeing what VR feels like by watching the player in the game.

To show the player in the game, the technology layers the foreground, the player and the green screen together. The most unique thing about Vive is "room scale VR," which allows one to get up and walk around the room. "The chaperone," or a virtual grid, makes sure that you don't bump into anything while walking around.

Mixed reality takes a lot of additional equipment so the mixed reality demo allows companies and developers to show consumers what it's like to actually be inside a mixed reality experience.
