Augmented reality or virtual reality?

Nowadays we’re surrounded by the terms Augmented reality and Virtual reality. They may sound alike, but they are two different concepts that we should know properly in this new digital era.

Augmented reality consists in adding digital layers in our existing reality. With that what we prettend is to perfectionate reality so we can see adiotional content through our screen devices. One example is Pokémon Go, a new game that allows the users to catch Pokemons hidden in the city wich interact with our world.

Virtual reality on the other hand consists in making the user enter a new digital dimension completely paralel to the real one. We need special and sofisticated devices able to make us enter a whole new universe using their senses. One example of this expanding technology is PlayStation VR.
