The way you look into the world has completely changed. Thanks to some great work in the field of technology, and yes not to forget, a big thank you to all the creative head. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are two of the ways that tech can change the way you look at the world. The terms can be confusing, yet many a times people think AR and VR are the same thing. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are increasingly used in technology

1. Augmented Reality is an upgraded version of reality created by the use of technology to add digital information on an image of something whereas Virtual Reality is the use of computer technology to create a stimulated environment.

2. AR applications use your phone’s camera to show you a view of the real world in front of you, then put a layer of information, including text and/or images, on top of that view whereas in VR, you are viewing a completely different reality than the one in front of you where VR may be artificial such as an animated scene.

3.  You can find money machines, see real estate for sale, find restaurants or even discover new sites you did not know existed whereas with virtual reality apps, you can explore places you have never been before, such as the Mount Everest, Statue of Liberty or even Great Wall of China.

There could be few differences between Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, but there is one thing in common between two. Both of these technologies are a massive achievement in the field of technology which has changed our perspective of viewing the outer world. Definitely there is lot in the store to keep us fascinated. So do stay updated, because magic has new name and that’s technology ;).
