AR vs VR

  • AR offers the users a real-world experience whereas VR offers the users the experience of a fictional world
  • AR users can control their presence in the real world, whereas VR users are controlled by the system.
  • AR can be accessed with a smartphone whereas VR cannot function without a headset device.
  • AR users are still in touch with the real world while interacting with virtual objects nearer to them. As for VR users, they are isolated from the real world and immerse their selves in a completely fictional world.
