Virtual reality and augmented reality are different in a fundamental way. The former is a fully immersive experience, while the later aims to keep reality in place while tweaking it in some way – for example, by making reality more informative or social through relevant computer graphics and data.
Virtual reality gaming is upon us, and that’s great. But with augmented reality for outdoor sports like RideOn, we can take this experience outside, make it active and healthy, and merely augment our real lives with computer data and graphics, instead of completely immersing ourselves in a computer-generated world. Which experience appeals to you more: Augmented reality or complete virtual immersion?
