Virtual reality is visual and audio experiences that are completely immersive. The user's experience takes the place of their outside world and places them in a completely new environment, whether that environment is concrete in its feel, such as within an architect's building design, or abstract, such as within a fantastical and imaginary space.
Augmented reality (AR) is the combination of a real world experience with information and visuals layered over it to enhance user awareness and insight into that real world experience. In its simplest form, augmented reality is the heads-up display in a car, but it can be 2D visuals delivered through a mobile device or through goggles such as Magic Leap or the Microsoft HoloLens. AR can enhance a shopping experience or walk a user through a complex technical procedure.
