There are two ways in which you can see technology virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) is that technology appears in the world. However, these terms can confuse someone. Although, sometimes people think Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality () are the same. The Rapid use of augmented reality and virtual reality in technology, so it is important to know the difference between them.

What is Augmented Reality?

This term is described as “Improved version of reality created by the use of technology to add digital information to some of the pictures.”

Augmented reality uses apps in smartphones and tablets. AR apps use there phone’s camera to show the real world views, then put the layer of information, including text and/or images at the top of this site. AR mostly use for fun in apps, such as game Pokemon GO or for information as app layer.

The Layer app can show a piece of interesting information about visited places, using the fact of increasing by augmenting reality. Open the app when you are going to a site and read the information that appears in a layer on your own.

Further, you may find money machine-like, real estate for sale, restaurants and using the More App AR feature. You can find new sites that you did not exist.

A special ‘marker’ associate with digital animation by AR apps typically or target GPS point on the phone. Real-time and expansion of the environment are expanding due to augmentation, for example, additional score in live feed sports events.

Four types of Augmented Reality:

  • Markerless AR
  • Marker-based AR
  • Projection-based AR
  • Superimposition-based AR

Marker-based AR

Some people identify it photo identification because it requires a special visual item and like camera scan. It may be on a special indicator from a print QR code. AR Device calculates the status and position of the marker in some cases, for content status. Thus, marker starts digital animation to see users and can convert such images into a magazine 3D model.

Markerless AR

GPS is a location-based or position-based augmentation as the compass, gyroscope, and an accelerometer to supply the user location-based data. This figure determines which content can find or get in a specific area. With the presence of smartphones, these types of AR typically produce maps and directions, close business information. Apps include events and information, business ads, and popups, navigation support.

Projection-based AR

Projection-based AR allows the physical level of the artificial light project, and in some cases to communicate with it. These are holograms that we have seen in all science-fiction movies like Star Wars. The transformation reveals user interaction with projection.

Superimposition-based AR

Superimposition-based AR Converts a complete or partially original view. Object identification plays an important role, without it that is a complete concept simply impossible. We have seen an example of this reality in the IKEA catalogue app which allows users to keep their furniture catalogue virtual items in their room.

Virtual Reality (VR)

However, VR is described as ” the creation of a simulated environment with the help of computer technology.” Glance on VR takes a person in a different reality from the real world. Virtual Reality can be artificial, such as animated views, or a real place that has been captured and virtual reality can be included in the app. With virtual reality, you can move around and see, downward, behind anything and back, as you were physically there.

 A special VR viewer is known as Oculus Rift. Viewers of other virtual reality use your phone and such as Google Cardboard or Daydream View.

With the apps of virtual reality can take a person places where he wants to go but cannot go physically, such as Mars or moon, mount Everest’s top, or deep levels below the sea. The New York Times also own a virtual reality app that helps you experience a virtual environment on earth and other planets. There is also a virtual reality app own by Google Earth.

Types of Virtual Reality Tools

The lion’s share of virtual entertainment systems (VEs) currently depends on the requirement of personal computers to make it powerful. And these systems require HMD so that they can help the integration to generate a virtual world. They are numerous kinds of HMDs available in the market, which are in all ranges cheap and costly. In addition, some devices are more accessible than others. For example, Google Cardboard is not near to cost less, but the fact is that it is designed to use with a smartphone, can experience virtual reality just about someone.

But let’s start with a device more familiar with Oculus Rift.

Oculus Rift

On the peak of the price, the Oculus-Rift Virtual consists of HMDs having gold quality standards. Specially projected for video games, it has a high-level approach, which provides great insight into virtual experiments.

HTC Vive

The HTC VR system – in partnership with the valve, and brought us to powered by Steam VR – is the leading VR headset and controller on the market today.

It marks it as a powerful, sleek and modern piece of classic technology and content kit. HTC successfully offers room-scale technologies and fully-amusing gaming experiences. They have emphasized fairly few awards to farther enhance their capabilities.


Samsung Gear

The comparison is slightly cheaper compared to the Oculus-Rift, Samsung’s VR headset is currently driven by Oculus. It requires a smartphone device to get powered and works innately with Samsung brand phones like Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S7, and S7 Edge.

Google Cardboard

VR headset has another option for use it with a phone, it is one, as mentioned earlier. It is a very cheap case compared to most other HMDs. And it can not be easy to use.

Just order, once it is in your control, fold it, slot you’re phone, and find the entire host of the VR apps. The best option for those who sink their feet in the world of virtual reality.
