Please stop saying “MirrorWorld” (singular). There will be “MirrorWorlds” (plural) of varying scales, complexity, completeness, and private/public trade offs.

There will not be a single virtual world that mirrors physical reality. Period.

@blair I read a lot about virtual worlds, but I have never seen the term 'MirrorWorld'. Is there a specific context for that term?

@jaranta the AR (and especially AR Cloud fans) have latched on to the idea of a dynamically generates virtual copy of the physical world.


@blair I find the whole idea baffling, but I guess it must make sense to them. Thanks for telling me!
