Have you ever wonder about the differences between the Virtual reality, Augmented reality, and Mixed reality? they are totally different from each other every one of then has it is own definition but they all share one thing which is are changing the way you look at the world through technology.

let’s start with Virtual reality

The term “Virtual reality” means “the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment.” When you wear VR glasses everything you see isn’t true at all and VR artificial such as animated scene, or an actual place that has been photographed and included in a virtual reality app.

You can experience virtual reality through a special VR viewer, like the Oculus Rift. Other virtual reality viewers such as your phone and VR apps, such as Google Cardboard or Daydream View.

VR is fully immersive, which tricks your senses into thinking you’re in a different environment or world apart from the real world.

Augmented reality

The augmented reality is the enhanced version of reality created by the use of technology to add digital information on an image of something.

AR uses apps for smartphones and tablets. AR apps use your phone’s camera to show you a view of the real world in front of you, then put a layer of information, including text or images, on top of that view.

Apps can use AR for fun like the game Pokémon GO.

Mixed reality 

From its name, it is the mix between the augmented reality and the VR. The predominantly virtual spaces where real-world objects or people are dynamically integrated into virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.

According to Wikipedia Mixed reality is ” the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. Mixed reality takes place not only in the physical world or the virtual world, but is a mix of reality and VR, encompassing both augmented reality and augmented virtuality via immersive technology”.
