    The major difference between AR & VR is as below :

    1. Augmented reality add something to the existing environment to enhance the real world, whereas virtual reality actually create an entirely new artificial world.
    2. Augmented reality needs the environment so just use a camera integrated in our devices such as Smartphone, tablets, PCs,. Virtual reality needs the opposite, a device which can fully isolate us in virtual world, this is, specific devices.
    3. Augmented reality is having more acceptance in formation and marketing field, whereas Virtual reality is better for videogames and other leisure options.

    Virtual Reality (like Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard, etc) puts the user in a virtual environment that is unrelated to the physical environment the user is in.
    Augmented Reality (like Microsoft Hololens, Google Glass, Epson Moverio, etc) overlays virtual elements on top of the real environment.

Science and Technology

Few years back, you may have imagined about robots dominating the world; a miniature helicopter capturing photos; or living in Mars. Imagination goes well with creation. We’re on our way. For hundreds of years, science has been doing studies and giving explanations to occurrences that go beyond the human imagination and understanding. Thus, theories are created.
For hundreds of years, technology has been doing a great job in industrialising the world. You step in the land of the first world countries and see for yourself how lifestyle has been advancing. Yet, theory is a theory until it’s proven; technology remains limited. You might wake up one day and see that sci-fi turns into reality. However, what happens next when the clock ticks to ‘Midnight’ and doomsday is for the universe?
