Yes, we are living in a virtual world. Technology is evolving and changing our life on earth. There were dreams of creating a virtual world and make the user interact with technology. Nintendo virtual boy was the device released in 1995 by Nintendo and which was failed in the market and no further development is made to that technology by Nintendo. 2015 is the golden era for the virtual technology as there are many classical devices serving the people in a unique way.
What is a virtual reality?
Virtual reality is all about creating a new virtual world in which the user can interact with the virtual world. It is really difficult to spot any differences between a virtual world and a real world. Virtual reality is achieved by wearing VR helmet or goggles similar to the Oculus Rift.
What is an augmented reality?
Augmented reality is blending a virtual reality with the real life. With AR the virtual components and the real world are experienced by the user and it was easy to distinguish between real world and virtual world. The user is more passionate with the AR rather than VR. AR adds the virtual elements to the real world. Google Glass providing the AR to the customers.
No dought to say AR is ahead of VR.
