Augmented reality is a projection of a real world environment that enhances the surroundings and provides an interactive medium to mask digital information on an image of something. As the word “augmented” refers to anything increased or made better, Augmented Reality can be understood as a form of virtual reality where the real world is expanded or enhanced in some way through the use of virtual components.
Virtual Reality is an experience that takes users to a simulated environment through compatible systems. Virtual reality gives the ability to place a person inside a virtual space, allowing them to move around and interact with that space as if it were the physical world.
Mixed Reality aims to combine the best aspects of both virtual reality and augmented reality to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.
