Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality
Augmented reality (AR), is becoming more and more popular and soon, will be an integral part of our everyday life. In short, AR is about an interactive experience of the real-world environment. In AR, tangible objects are enhanced by computer generated perceptual information, sometimes using multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory etc. More specifically, it is a system that basically fulfils three features which are: a combination with real and virtual worlds, real-time interaction and an accurate 3D registration of real and virtual objects. In AR, the overlaid sensory information might be either constructive (adding to the natural environment), or deconstructive (masking to the natural environment). The growth of this technology has been exponential in recent years and as a result, the AR provides the user with an experience almost identical to the one experienced in our real world.
Some years ago, we would never imagine that we would be able to feel that we are in a different world and environment than ours. Now, with Virtual Reality (VR), this comes as simply as playing a video game. More specifically, VR is about a simulated experience that might be either similar or completely different from reality. The most common applications of VR are entertainment, e.g .video games, educational purposes, such as medical or military training. With VR, users can have an experience of a different world than the physical.
AR and VR are two really similar technologies, but there are some differences. The biggest one, is that with AR you see your physical environment, and with VR you actually move to another world which might be similar or different to your physical.
