Augmented reality is the integration of digital entities into the real world and vice versa.
Immersive experiences are media that surround you such that you feel that you are inside the media. For example, a theme park attraction that transports you to a simulated world.
Sensory media is any media that goes beyond sight and sound. For example, haptic feedback in a video game.
Virtual presence is the simulation of an individual's presence in a place. For example, a robot that simulates a worker's presence deep in a mineshaft.
Any software that is used to communicate can be considered media. For example, a flight reservation system that is used to communicate between employees and customers about the status of flights and bookings.
Space networks are communication and data networks that operate in space.
New media is subject to a broad trend known as media convergence whereby all media is becoming more similar with time. For example, video games that are as realistic as films and films that are as interactive as video games.
