What is Mixed reality?
Mixed reality or augmented reality as it is also known, is a way of creating an experience for the viewer that fuses physical and digital elements in real-time.
The most well known examples of augmented reality are projection mapping, video games that use motion controlled movements for play, and mobile apps like Pokemon Go, Snapchat, and Skin Motion.
Augmented reality offers incredible opportunities to artists and developers who are interested in bringing physical experiences to life with information, visualization and animation of things that previously only existed digitally.

Nate founded Skin Motion™ to make Soundwave Tattoos™ possible for everyone,
simplifying the process and created a patent-pending augmented reality cloud platform to bring tattoos to life.
