VR (Virtual Reality) is a simulated experience that allows a user to explore a digitally created 3D world by wearing a head-mounted display and some form of input tracking to monitor their movements. AR (Augmented Reality) is the result of using technology to superimpose data – sound, images and graphics – onto the real world around you.
Create captivating new worlds and immersive experiences through the magic of virtual and augmented reality.
