Augmented Reality (AR)
Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where our real world surroundings are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information.
Augmented Reality is used to enhance natural environments or situations with virtual objects and offer interactive and enriched experiences.
Example: Placing a couch in Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality vs. Virtual Reality
Augmented Reality (AR) differs from Virtual Reality (VR) in the sense that in AR part of the surrounding environment is actually 'real' and just adding layers of virtual objects to the real environment. On the other hand, in VR the surrounding environment is completely virtual.
