Virtual Reality vs. Augmented Reality: Match-Up

With the recent release of Pokemon Go, augmented reality has been on the rise. However, it isn’t the only reality that is being challenged. Virtual reality has also been a game-changer in today’s world. Which will be more prevalent in the future? Here’s our match-up. Before we begin…

What is Virtual Reality (VR)?

According to Augmented.com, Virtual reality (VR) is an artificial, computer-generated simulation or recreation of a real life environment or situation. It delivers an experience of being in the simulated reality, mainly with visual and hearing sense enhancement.

Virtual reality is is done through VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language), a coding language which can be used to create a series of images, and specify what types of interactions are possible for them.

What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that layers computer-generated enhancements atop an existing reality in order to make it more meaningful through the ability to interact with it. AR is developed into apps and used on mobile devices to blends digital components into the real world in such a way that they enhance one another, but can also be told apart easily.

AR technology is quickly coming into the mainstream. It is used to display score overlays on telecasted sports games and pop out 3D emails, photos or text messages on mobile devices. Leaders of the tech industry are also using AR to do amazing and revolutionary things with holograms and motion activated commands.

Similarities

  • Technology: both utilize same types of technology and exist to give the end-user an enhanced or enriched experience
  • Environment: new artificial worlds come to life under the user’s control, and deeper layers of interaction with the real world are also achievable
  • Science and Medicine: huge potential in changing the landscape of the medical field by making things such as remote surgeries a real possibility. These technologies been already been used to treat and heal psychological conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). They have also been key to training medical students by replacing textbooks by using the technology to teach anatomy

Differences

  • Purpose: Augmented reality enhances experiences by adding virtual components such as digital images, graphics, or sensations as a new layer of interaction with the real world. Contrastingly, virtual reality creates its own reality that is completely computer generated and driven.
  • Delivery Method:
    • Virtual Reality is usually delivered to the user through a head-mounted, or hand-held controller. This equipment connects people to the virtual reality, and allows them to control and navigate their actions in an environment meant to simulate the real world.
    • Augmented reality is being used more and more in mobile devices such as laptops, smart phones, and tablets to change how the real world and digital images, graphics intersect and interact

Can they work in conjunction?

Yes! The two don’t always have to go head-to-head. Sometimes, the two are blended to create a more immersing experience. For example, haptic feedback-the vibration and sensation that occurs when interacting with graphics-is considered an augmentation. It is commonly used within a virtual reality setting, thus, making the experience feel more real with the sensation of touch.

Conclusion:

VR and AR can influence the world by changing how one user experience various areas, whether it is learning or gaming. It definitely adds a new element of interaction between digital devices and the real world. Whether it is used by itself or integrated, they are undoubtedly opening up worlds-both real and virtual alike.
