Augmented Reality is a combination of the real world and the virtual world which provides the user a real yet illusionary experience. The system works in a three-dimensional environment. The human intuitions and behavior can be connected with the computer software to provide a virtual experience while being present in the real world.

Virtual Reality is based on a three-dimensional world which can be visualized through a host of computer devices. The Virtual Reality works on the orientation of the body and eyeball movements of the user. Based on these criteria, a virtual environment is created in which the user can enter and have an experience which is not real.
