  • AR[Augmented Reality] adds digital elements to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone.

  • VR[Virtual Reality] implies a complete immersion experience that shuts out the physical world.

  • Through, AR we get the interactive experience of a real-world environment .

  • Where the object which resides world is enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensor modalities, including visual, haptic, somatosensory, olfactory, and auditory.

  • Although VR is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. VR includes application like education(eg. military training), entertainment(eg. video games) ,business(eg. virtual meetings).

  • Other distinct types of technology include mixed reality and augmented reality.

  • mixed reality is sometimes also referred to as extended reality or XR.

There are different types of AR/VR as following:

1. Fully-immersive

2. Semi-immersive

3. Non-immersive

1. Fully-Immersive

  • This type of VR is used for gaming purposes and other entertainment purposes in VR arcades or even at home.

  • Fully-immersive simulations give the user the most realistic experience possible, complete with sound and sight.

  • The VR headsets also provide high-resolution content with a wide field of view. Whether ur fighting or flying with bad guys, you will feel like your there.

2. Semi-Immersive

  • Semi-immersive experiences provide users with the partially virtual environment with which they interact.

  • This type of VR is mainly used for educational purposes and training purposes.

  • Through this they experience is made possible with graphical computing and large project systems.

  • In Semi-immersive Vr the simulations still give users the perception of being in a different reality.

  • This kind of virtual reality is not always possible to experience wherever we want. Instead, physical environments are created to supplement virtual reality.

3. Non-Immersive

  • Non-immersive simulation is often forgotten as an actual type of VR, because it is commonly used in our everyday lives.

  • The average video game is technically considered a non-immersive virtual reality experience. Think suppose, you are sitting in a physical space, interacting with the virtual one.

  • These types of experiences have become more advanced in recent years with video games.

  • This technology provides a computer-generated environment but allows the user to stay aware of and keep control of their physical environment.

  • Non-immersive VR systems rely on computers or video console games, display and input devices like mice, keyboards, and controllers.

  • A video game is a great example of a non-immersive VR experience.
