A mixed reality system has been patented, consisting of a sensor that acquires real-world data readings and displays a visualization of the data to the user. The system includes processing circuitry that obtains information about virtual entities in the area, their physical properties, and situational parameters affecting the sensor. By manipulating simulated readings based on these parameters, the system displays virtual entity visualizations alongside the real-world visualization, enhancing the user's viewing experience.

The patent also covers methods and computer-readable storage mediums for implementing the mixed reality system. It details how the system handles movement effects, environmental parameters, and communication channels for delivering real-world and virtual entity visualizations. The system's parameters, such as noise models, spectral sensitivity, and detection limits, play a crucial role in shaping the visualizations. By simulating various effects and employing algorithms, the system ensures an immersive mixed reality experience for the user, blending virtual entities seamlessly with real-world data. Overall, the patented system offers a sophisticated approach to mixed reality visualization, enhancing user interaction and engagement with virtual elements in a real-world context.
