What is Merged Reality?

Project alloy aims to merge reality into VR to address some of the many problems with today's VR. Namely, your hands. Early demos of project alloy show real graphical representations of your hands from within VR, no controllers or gloves required. You can even hold an object in your hand and see that object from within VR as well.
