Differences between virtual and augmented reality

Virtual and augmented reality concepts can be confused with each other. Differences between the two technologies;

  • While virtual reality (VR) provides an experience to its user completely isolated from real life, augmented reality (AR) provides an experience to the user without losing contact with the world.
  • While continuing to feel touch with real life objects in augmented reality experiences, everything seen in virtual reality is virtual and simulated.
  • While the hardware used in virtual reality experiences is made with a glasses that cover the entire field of view and control sound, augmented reality also provides a free space for the user as if using a typical mobile application.
