There have been many implementations of virtual reality, using audio and visual senses. However, implementations of mixed reality (MR) have thus far only dealt with the visual sense. We have developed an MR system that merges real and virtual worlds in both the audio and visual senses, wherein the geometric consistency of the audio sense was fully coordinated with the visual sense. We tried two approaches for merging real and virtual worlds in the audio sense, using open-air and closed-air headphones.
