Mixed Reality (MR) technology allows us to seamlessly merge real and virtual worlds to create new experiences and environments. MR includes technologies such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Even though this technology has been around for several years, it is just starting to become available to an average consumer with the introduction of devices such as the HTC Vive and the Microsoft Hololens. This thesis consists of the design, implementation and evaluation of three projects that highlight a novel experience in mixed reality using existing sensors and peripherals. VRoom describes a simple and novel approach to 3D room scanning using only an HTC Vive and 360 camera. Mathland is a mixed reality application that enables users to interact with math and physics using a stretch sensor, IMU and camera. ARPiano is an augmented MIDI keyboard that offers a different approach to music learning by adding intuitive visuals and annotations.
