In other words, AR is a system that enhances the real world by superimposing computer-generated information on top of it. VR technologies completely immerse a user inside a synthetic environment. While immersed, the user can not see the real world around him/her. In contrast, AR allows the user to see the real world, but superimposes computer-generated informa ...
