At the beginning, Augmented Reality was considered a gimmick, but in recent years it has become increasingly important in industry as well. The application possibilities are manifold. For example, AR is used to visualize architectural projects, flight and/or driving simulations, or to display additional information in the fields of medicine, industrial maintenance and design.
Augmented Reality is the mostly visual extension of the real environment. Using AR applications and suitable aids such as AR glasses or smartphones, objects and/or information can be projected into the viewer's field of vision. Depending on the application and the hardware used, interaction with the objects is also possible.
Both augmented and virtual reality live from computer-generated content. In both cases the user can interact with the elements depending on the program.
The main difference between AR and VR is now that the user of a VR application is completely immersed in the virtual world and no longer perceives the real environment. A pair of glasses is always required as an aid, but it is also possible to use a smartphone in combination with an appropriate device.
In an AR application, the real environment is completely perceived, but expanded by additional elements. Smartphones or tablets on which the AR application is installed can be used as aids. With the help of Augmented Reality glasses such as the HoloLens from Microsoft, AR content can also be displayed directly in the user's field of vision.
