Some words are used so naturally in today's business talk that nobody questions their meaning. Especially in the daily Virtual Reality "namedropping" there is a regular argument about the definition of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR). To make things even more complicated, many start-ups that deal with Business Usecases in VR use terms such as "VR collaboration" to distinguish the professional use case from the use of VR gaming. This term can be found about 54,000,000 times on Google, a clear definition on the first pages is conspicuous by its absence. And who is looking further on page 5 or even 10? Well, we did it.
