VR is Virtual Reality- It means there is no real-world interaction. You are going to play a game or view objects that are available in the Graphics world. You can pretend to be there. Reality-based interaction games using VR. It will give you the experience of you presented there.
Augmented Reality is AR. It is a combination of the real world and computer-generated environment. With computer-generated perceptual information, the object looks almost real on your screen. It requires a lot of graphical rendering and millions of calculations to give an object close to the actual look.
Using AR, you can bring 3D objects into the current world surface using your mobile interface. You can see both real-world objects and 3D objects on the screen. AR is slowly becoming the future, and this technology is widely using in a lot of real-time scenarios like furniture fit in your home. Before buying furniture, you can check whether the furniture can fit in your home or blend style with your home. Some of the measuring Apps now using AR 3D.
