          Just wanted to add the thought that if you are looking to create mixed reality applications with Alloy, an excellent reference on YouTube is a long-running 1980's British TV adventure game-show show called Knightmare.  It combined real actors with computer-generated rooms that a helmet-wearing young contestant had to be guided through by a group of friends watching the mixed-reality feed on a monitor and offering audio advice to the helmet.

           

          Also, like Project Alloy, the helmet wearer could pick up real-world objects and use them in the CGI puzzles.

           

          Here's episode one from YouTube - there are numerous other ones available to watch if you YouTube for 'knightmare'.
