Augmented Reality is not considered as renowned as the virtual reality but it has the feature and potential to be used more widely. It is a world changing technology and moreover, unlike VR, AR can be used without incurring the cost on any accessories
What Is Augmented Reality?
Now before enhancing this topic further, we will first know what Augmented Reality, or AR is? It is a technology that provides digital information to the real world, with the usage of apps on smartphones and other devices. Augmented reality iPhone apps allows the users to ‘see’ around through the cameras on their devices.
You will understand more precisely with the help of the example of Pokemon Go. However, it is also a terrific game which took many lives (due to carelessness of users who were too much addicted)
With this game, you open the camera of the phone and revolve it around unless you see a character. The moment character is being displayed you have to click on that to collect the points.
Another example is the Vivino app, which helps in tracking the wines you drink at restaurants with the help of augmented reality iPhone app.
AR can be used in most of the high tech smartphones, and also it can be used it the daily life. You also don’t need a headset to use AR and cut off from the world as the case in VR. According to many, Augmented Reality will be widely used in near future and will have a broad scope.
Augmented reality can be used in any iPhone and iPads, unlike VR which needs hardware along with the apps. To use AR, you just need an app that provides augmented reality features. Some apps need Wifi and GPS but if you have a smartphone that can run apps then you don’t need that too.
