The difference between VR and AR

By | January 23, 2023

Virtual Reality (VR) is a computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional environment that can be interacted with using special equipment, such as a VR headset with a screen and sensors. The user is fully immersed in the virtual world and can look around and interact with objects as if they were real.

Augmented Reality (AR) is similar to VR, but instead of creating a completely virtual environment, it overlays digital information on the user’s view of the real world. This can be done using a smartphone or tablet camera, or specialized AR glasses.

Both VR and AR have a wide range of applications, such as gaming, education, and training, as well as in fields like medicine, architecture, and engineering.
