Virtual Reality And Augmented Reality
Virtual reality(VR) is a computer-generated simulation of an alternate world or reality, and is primarily used in 3D movies and in video games. Virtual reality creates simulations—meant to shut out the real world and envelope or “immerse” the viewer—using computers and sensory equipment such as headsets and gloves. Apart from games and entertainment, virtual reality has also long been used in training, education, and science.
Augmented reality (AR) is VR’s cousin and makes no pretense of creating a virtual world. Unlike VR, AR is accessed using much more common equipment such as mobile phones, and it superimposes images such characters on top of video or a camera viewer, which most consumers already have, making it much more usable for retail, games, and movies.
