What is the Difference between Augmented Reality (AR) vs. Virtual Reality (VR) vs. Mixed Reality (MR)?

Many changes have been made in the technical field in the last few years. Due to these changes, the way of looking at the world has also changed. The launch of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) has completely transformed various business sectors.

These technologies have allowed people to interact better with technology, but do you know what AR and VR mean? Also, do you know that apart from AR and VR, MR technology is also available. MR stands for Mixed Reality. It was introduced with the Microsoft HoloLens. Here we are telling you the meaning of these three separately.
Augmented Reality (AR):
With the help of technology in Augmented Reality, a digital world is created like the environment around you. It looks so real. This technology is being used in the fields of digital gaming, education, military training, engineering design, robotics, shopping, and medicine.

This technology works through the camera. The Pokemon Go game launched in the year 2016 is a good example of this. Also Instagram and Snapchat provide live face stickers using this technology.
Virtual Reality (VR):
Virtual Reality is the opposite of Augmented Reality. In virtual reality, a separate virtual world is created instead of the real world. For this a scene and voice are used. For this a headset has been made in which the camera is present.

Such VR headsets are available in the market. These also include HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream View. This technology is not only used in gaming, but it is also used in professional training such as defense, doctors, pilots and hospitality sectors.
Mixed Reality (MR):
The Mixed Reality Platform is introduced by Microsoft. This technology is made available with the HoloLens. In this, AR and VR work together. This means in this technology the camera is attached to the headset. The camera used for Augmented Reality creates a virtual reality effect.

This technology is expected to grow rapidly in the coming times. It is considered better and more detailed than AR and VR. This may come in handy for museums, industry workers, and medical professionals in the coming times.
