    They are actually inverse reflections for each other. VR creates an entertainment of real-life situations, whereas, AR gives the virtual elements as an overlay to the real world.

    How are they similar?
    Technologically, both leverage some of the similar technology types, and they both offer an enhanced or better experience.

    In the world of Entertainment, both the technologies provide experiences which are becoming very common. Leading tech experts are researching and developing new adaptations, making improvements, and releasing advanced products and apps which support these technologies for tech-savvy users.

    In the world of Science and Medicine, both have great power to change the face of the medical field by introducing things like remote surgeries.

    Augmented reality is the technology where you can add the digital information to the images. It is used with your smartphones, tablets. The AR apps use the camera to display the view of the real world. It will add the information like text/images to the top of view. Pokemon Go game is one of the example of it.


    Virtual Reality is used to view the totally different view which is in-front of you. It is computer technology which will give the stimulated view. Animated scenes are the example of it. Photographer use the VR. You can move in nay direction as you are physically there like up, down, left, right.

    Example of it is real time view of surface of sea, area on Mars etc.
