AR and VR: Definitions and Applications

AR and VR are similar and related concepts, but they do have key differences:

Augmented reality

Also called "AR," this is a program or app that adds digital elements to a real-world experience. Using a phone, tablet or headset, an AR app takes visual data from the device's camera and augments it with new information or interactive features. AR is great for gaming but even better for businesses looking to create richer experiences for their clients. For example, an AR app can let you visualize how a space would look with different paint on the wall, or with new furniture. The possibilities are endless. And because AR apps typically don't require additional hardware, there's a large potential audience.

Virtual reality

VR, on the other hand, provides a more immersive experience, although it often requires a special headset or other hardware. Using a VR headset, like the Oculus Rift or PlayStation VR, developers can create new worlds for users to explore.

VR is an ideal platform for training apps, health care, science, engineering, construction and many other industries and sectors.

AR and VR App Development

As AR and VR have taken off in recent years, there has been a simultaneous explosion of development tools and software for app design. Knowing which platform to use is only part of the battle. To ensure your project is successful, you need to work with a partner who understands this space and has the technical training to bring your vision to life.

Wve Labs works with a wide range of technology stacks and development tools to create immersive AR and VR apps. We are a partner to businesses that want to leverage the latest platforms to drive deeper engagement with their customers. As an extension of your team, we'll provide the technical side of the process, while recommending ways to enhance your finished product.

Is an AR/VR App the Right Choice for Your Business?

Technology is always evolving, and it's not uncommon for something that feels like a game-changer today to be obsolete by tomorrow. With that in mind, is an investment in AR/VR the right choice for your business now?

Ultimately, the answer to this question depends on the value your users will get from the technology.
