VR involves full immersion of the user into a virtual reality which is totally different from the real world. The user casts on a VR headset; powerful machines and cores enable the user to see, hear and feel the computer-generated reality as it were real life. VR Prototyping is a major application which vastly reduces conceptualization costs and time for a product.
This technology with heavy funding and research has opened up a plethora of other industry wide applications too: city planning, automobile designing, architecture, gaming, film-making etc.
Augmented Reality (AR)
AR on the other hand does not construct a whole new reality. It rather ‘augments’ real world scenarios and objects to supplement the user’s perception of reality. Unlike VR, specialized gear is not usually needed to experience Augmented Reality. A wider range of devices like smartphones or tablets are capable of rendering a powerful AR experience.
Widespread foreseeable applications in interactive education, gaming, home designing, etc. make it a hot field in Deep Technology based startups.
AR + VR: Mixed Reality (MR)
As the name suggests, MR aims to incorporate the best of both the worlds. Imagine picking up a ball and throwing it in the real world as your character does the same in the virtual simulation: that’s Mixed Reality. This is the true realization and integration that the sister technologies of AR and VR are working towards today.
