NASA's definition of "mixed reality" here does not conflict with that of Microsoft's or Magic Leap's. They both mix reality with virtual reality. The Vive just occludes reality completely where Microsoft and Magic Leap do a harder thing by letting you see some of reality. I've put virtual displays on walls with a HoloLens that look quite similar to that in the video and was able to interact with a lamp in front of the virtual displays similar to the video where the person interacts with the bar.

The HoloLens does the hard part of mapping reality. With the Vive, somebody had to put the parts of reality they wanted mapped into virtual reality.
