Augmented Reality Simulation (AR)

A Model Use where 3D models - combined with other technologies - allow users to experience virtual objects superimposed on top of physical objects or places. As opposed to Virtual Reality Simulation, Augmented Reality (AR) is only partial 'immersive' thus allowing images from the physical and virtual worlds to appear as one. AR is typically experienced through hand-held screens, wearables, holograms and projections
