AR (Augmented Reality) & Virtual Reality (VR) applications (apps) tend to be determined by computer simulation of real-life scenarios and environments. The simulation will bear an increased amount of resemblance with whatever has depicted from real-life, either graphically or sensorially. The phrase ‘sensorially’ is broader than ‘graphically’ since it means everything perceptible to the senses I.e. graphics, touch, sound, voice, smell and the like. Usually, the degree of resemblance together with the original should be often higher plus much more accurate regarding VR compared to AR apps.
Take into account the video recording of your 100-metre dash through the recent Olympics. The main commentary could possibly be in English therefore, as it’s, that video will not be very here you are at in france they. Either changing the commentary to French or adding suitable French sub-titles can make it more fulfilling with a French audience. This, in essence, is when AR finds its opportunity – augmenting the initial with more useful info – in our example, substituting French for English and consequently, making the information worth more towards the French-speaking. As the second example, look at the video capture of your road accident. Two cars collide over a highway then one is badly damaged. Law enforcement may not be able to pin-point which of these two drivers was to blame for the accident merely by viewing the recording. If, however, the playback quality was pre-processed by an AR application that added mass, speed and direction info. with the cars to the video, then, the one responsible may be established with all-around, maybe, hundred-percent certainty.
VR (Virtual Reality), alternatively, is pretty not the same as AR. In reality, both the only share a very important factor in keeping – computer based simulation. As pointed out, the simulation furnished by VR must be of which high quality that it is indistinguishable from reality. Theoretically, this is impossible. Therefore, for practical purposes, VR only means a degree of approximation, sufficient to get a user to obtain a ‘live’ connection with the simulated environment. Moreover, VR is interactive and responds sensorially, in ‘real-time’, and simply such as real-life e.g. in the VR application, imagine you are in a forest, about to burn a pile of cut-down bushes and dry leaves. You douse the pile with gasoline. A fox is keenly watching you from the local place. You then throw a lighted match-stick on to the pile… it will respond immediately showing a powerful, quickly spreading fire burning around the pile, its shape occasionally altered with the breeze… so when in real-life… the fox (scared by the fire), must try to escape? – and it does! The system may permit you to change the direction, speed and alteration inside the speed with the blowing wind, angle of throw with the match-stick etc. and the system will respond with the new results immediately! Thus, VR enables someone to research real-life scenarios and have sufficiently accurate results in the same way though he/she were in the desired environment/ place, in person, but save your time, travel & resource costs etc.
VR applications consume awesome quantities of computing power. In comparison, AR applications aren’t in any respect demanding on resources – AR applications run comfortably on cell phones, tablets, other hand-helds, laptops and desktops. Very probably, you’re using several AR apps in your Android/ iOS device, right this moment, lacking the knowledge of it! (e.g. Wordlens, Wikitude World Browser etc.).
The explanation for the main difference is the fact that VR apps first should correctly interpret whatever action the user performed then ‘make out’ the proper response that this real environment would return, full of animated graphics, movements in the right directions, sounds and so on as well as, depending on correct physics, math and then for any other sciences involved. Most importantly, ‘latency’, or the response time from your application, has to be sufficiently high. If not, the user, that has have understandably high expectations, will get so completely put-off that he/she might burst by helping cover their a string of unprintable words to the effect "to hell with this particular dumb thing!’. To prevent such failures, a computer (or network of computers) equipped with unusually powerful mobile processors, high-fidelity graphics software, precision motion trackers and advanced optics, is essential. Understanding that explains, why.
