Augmented Reality vs. Virtual Reality: What’s the Difference?

While Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are often used interchangeably, they are fundamentally different technologies. AR overlays digital information onto the real world, while VR immerses users in a completely digital world. Both AR and VR provide interactive and immersive experiences, and both have their unique applications in gaming, education, retail, art and design, and entertainment. So, whether you prefer the augmented view of the real world with AR or the fully immersive experience of VR, there’s no denying that both technologies are transforming the way we interact with the world around us.
