What is Augmented Reality?


Augmented Reality
phone AR

- requires interaction with real world objects

 - sensors can be used to compute the your surrounding environment AND what you body is doing

 - requires more computing power than VR









Virtual Reality
VR

  - bound by a virtual space

 - limited in the virtual space by the physical space you have in the real world

 - requires sensors in order to determine what your body is doing








So How Exactly are AR and VR Different?

AR:
  1. requires interaction with real world objects
  2. sensors can be used to compute the your surrounding environment AND what you body is doing
  3. requires more computing power than VR

VR:
  1. bound by a virtual space
  2. limited in the virtual space by the physical space you have in the real world
  3. requires sensors in order to determine what your body is doing
