In previous posts, we talked separately about virtual reality and augmented reality. This sort of technology enables two views of the world. But the concepts can be unclear. In many cases, we can think that VR and AR are the same thing. That is why it is good to know what the difference between these two realities is. What is the point that separates them?

As written, with Virtual Reality, it is about a three-dimensional image or virtual-artificial environment and enables an immersive experience. With it, we want to achieve immersion and presentation in such a way all temporary deviations in the virtual environment are accepted as a real. To use Virtual Reality we need specially created glasses through which we can step into the virtual environment. Technology at Augmented Reality enables enrichment or extension of the physical world with adding virtual information. Therefore, it enables adding virtual elements and content. To be able to use Augmented Reality we need a smart device with the pre-loaded application, like a tablet or smartphone, which has a built-in camera.

Virtual Reality is a realistic three-dimensional image or artistic environment that is usually presented in such a way all temporary deviations in the virtual environment are accepted as a real environment. Virtual Reality can best be understood by defining what we want to achieve - total immersion.

Total immersion means that sensual experience is felt as real, and at the same time, we forget that it is a virtual-artificial environment and we begin to interact with it in the same way as we do in the real world. With the help of Virtual Reality, we can imitate the properties of the real environment. Which means that the Virtual Reality environment can simulate our everyday environment (for example: walk in the park, walk in the favorite city ...) or exceeds the boundaries of physical reality by creating a world where physical laws do not apply or do not exist (for example: fight with aliens, travel through space, visiting other planets with zero gravity ...).
