What is difference between augmented reality and virtual reality?
- The digital element to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone.
- multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory and olfactory.
- It is the combination of real and virtual worlds, real-time interaction, and accurate 3D registration of virtual and real objects.
- The AR first form invented in the early 1990s.
- This system developed at the U.S. Air Force’s Armstrong Laboratory in 1992.
- AR experiences in Snapchat lenses and the game Pokemon Go.
- The main application of AR in the field of Medical Training. From operating MRI equipment to performing complex surgeries, AR tech holds the potential to boost the depth and effectiveness of medical training in many areas.
- Gadgets for AR are Eyeglasses :AR displays can be rendered on devices resembling eyeglasses.
A head-up display (HUD): It transparent display that presents data without requiring users to look away from their usual viewpoints.
Contact lenses: that display AR imaging are in development.
Contact lenses that display AR imaging are in development.
- Virtual reality (VR) is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world.
- Applications of virtual reality can include entertainment video games and educational purposes.
- Currently standard virtual reality systems use either virtual reality headsets , multi-projected environments to generate realistic images.
- Virtual reality typically incorporates auditory and video feedback.
- Virtual reality (VR) technologies play with our senses to transport us to any world that we can imagine.
- VR technologies play with our senses to transport us to any world that we can imagine.
- The main application interaction between VR and the brain has already led to applications in health and medicine, including treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, surgical training, and physical therapy.
AR Vs VR
- VR users’ perception of reality is completely based on virtual information. but AR the user is provided with additional computer generated information that enhances their perception of reality.
- VR can be used to create a walk-through simulation of the inside of a object and AR can be used to show a structures and systems super-imposed on a real-life view.
- AR is surrounding environment to actually real and just adding layers of virtual objects to the real environment.In case of VR the surrounding environment is completely virtual.
