What are the differences between Magic Leap 2, Virtual Reality, and Passthrough Virtual Reality?

Magic Leap 2 is an augmented reality device that maintains its user's view of their environment while integrating digital content within it. Purpose-built for enterprise use, its open platform and industry-leading technology and features are designed to run transformative enterprise solutions.
Virtual Reality provides users with a world escapist experience by completely removing them from their real surroundings and immersing them in a totally digital world.
Passthrough Virtual Reality integrates external-facing cameras into headset to mimic augmented reality. By combining a video feed of its user's world with rendered digital content, passthrough maintains only a limited degree of user's awareness and interaction with the physical world.

How is the Immersive and visual experience different with Magic Leap 2, A Virtual Reality device and a pass-through virtual reality device?

The Immersiveness and visual experience offered by Magic Leap 2, a Virtual Reality (VR) device, and a pass-through virtual reality device exhibit distinctive features.

Magic Leap 2 stands out with its Mixed Reality (MR) capabilities, seamlessly blending digital content with the real world. Through advanced spatial computing and spatial audio, Magic Leap 2 creates a highly immersive environment where virtual elements coexist with the user's physical surroundings. In contrast, traditional VR devices, such as Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, immerse users in entirely virtual environments, providing an all-encompassing escape from reality.

The Magic Leap 2, with its focus on lightweight design and pass-through capabilities, allows users to maintain a connection with the real world while engaging with digital content. Pass-through VR devices, on the other hand, leverage cameras to provide a partial view of the surroundings within the virtual environment, offering a compromise between immersion and awareness of the physical space. Each device caters to unique preferences, with Magic Leap 2 introducing a novel approach to mixed reality, VR devices immersing users in complete virtual worlds, and pass-through devices finding a balance between the two realms.

With Magic Leap 2 are there any Detrimental effects: Motion sickness ("cybersickness") and/or feeling of disembodiment?

The simple answer is no because you stay in the real world and are aided by digital aids, hence reality is augmented by digital aids, hence the term augmented reality.

What are the detrimental effects of virtual reality?

Unfortunately motion sickness is quite common.

What are the detrimental effects of pass-through Virtual reality?

Unfortunately motion sickness is quite common.

What is the user adaptability like with a Magic Leap 2?

The user adapts immediately as it mixes the real world and only adds helpful digital tools you ask for.

What is the adaptability like with Virtual reality devices?

Users adapt slowly as they cannot see the real world.
