AR is the blending of virtual reality and real life, as developers create images within applications that blend in with contents in the real world..
Virtual reality is all about the creation of a virtual world that users can interact with.
User's physical environment is enhanced with contextually relevant digital content in real-time to the user.Augmented reality can be experienced with a smartphone or with special hardware.
Uses goggles, speakers, and sometimes handheld wearables to simulate a "Real World" experience in a virtual reality. Can employ visual, auditory, and haptic (touch) stimulation, so the constructed reality is immersive.
