First thing is to understand what virtual and augmented reality is and how they differ. Augmented reality is achieved through technologies that complement the vision of the real world with information created by a computer. A good example of augmented reality is Google Glass — smart glasses that combine a touchpad, camera and LED display. Due to the display, Google Glass users have access to the Internet and to services such as navigating and sending emails to the addresses indicated within sight.
New generation devices, such as Microsoft HoloLens, open up truly magical possibilities. A person who uses these glasses sees the whole world around him through transparent glass, but in addition to this, there is a different number of holograms, graphs, images and three-dimensional objects in front of him. Of course, they don't appear in the real wor
ld, and no one except the owners of the glasses themselves can interact with them. However, if the other person also wears Hololens, he will be able to find himself in the same virtual world as the other users of the glasses. This illusion is created by displaying the necessary objects on the glass, which are subsequently perceived by the user's brain as if they were real.
