Microsoft Ignite, the company's big conference dedicated to IT, kicked off earlier today in Orlando, Florida. And that means a boatload of news about Windows, Office, Azure, Skype -- and everything else in Microsoft's arsenal that the company is targeting to business and enterprise customers.

Mixed reality -- what most others call augmented reality -- took center stage during CEO Satya Nadella's opening remarks. Nadella and his team highlighted how Ford is using Microsoft's headsets to design cars in a shared environment that combines the real-world and virtual elements.
