  The augmented reality is a direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.

Computer graphics have become much more sophisticated since then, and game graphics are pushing the barriers of photorealism. Now researchers and engineers are pulling graphics out of your television screen or computer display and taking you into the real world environments. The augmented reality blurs the line between what’s real and what’s computer generated by enhancing what we see, hear, feel and smell. But, how does augmented reality works? Is it similar to virtual reality? It is similar in that the user views a series of images via a pair of 3d glasses or a head mounted display (HMD). Augmented reality glasses are worn in the same way as virtual reality glasses in that they enable the wearer to interact with these images as a part of the overall experience. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AUGMENTED REALITY AND VIRTUAL REALITY The difference between augmented reality and virtual reality is the level of immersion that got in it. Virtual reality is based in a complete simulation of a real world which the user can explore and interact with by means of the head mounted display and input device. The user loses or immerses in this virtual environment. With augmented reality the user sees the real world but with the addition of computer generated images, which are overlaid on various objects within the real...
