Virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) are very hot pieces of technology right now. VR and AR have limitless applications to a large range of industries and disciplines. It’s not just applicable to gaming, but healthcare, product design, and aviation. VR and AR’s innovations are going to be brought to every corner of the globe, and now is the best time to get ahead of the game and integrate it within your business.
VR and AR are quite similar yet very distinct pieces of technology. With virtual reality, the clue is in the name and it involves an interactive computer-generated experience that takes place within a simulated environment using audiovisual elements. In contrast, augmented reality is an interactive experience that is overlayed onto the real world. AR supplements objects in the real world with computer-generated visual information.
