Hello Coolfans !
The future is almost now. Augmented-reality and virtual-reality headsets are real things, it's just a matter of refining the technology. Microsoft announced the HoloLens, an augmented-reality system that uses goggles to overlay virtual objects and information onto the real world around you.

Virtual Reality (VR)
Virtual reality is essentially the use of technology to create the illusion of presence in an environment that isn’t really there. It works by sending information to various senses, such as sight a, that fool our brains into experiencing something virtual. The illusion is often completed by the presence of interactivity.

VR is typically achieved by wearing a headset equipped with the technology, and is used prominently in two different ways:
1. To create and enhance an imaginary reality for gaming, entertainment, and play (Such as video and computer games, or 3D movies, head-mounted display).

2. To enhance training for real life environments by creating a simulation of reality where people can practice beforehand (Such as flight simulators for pilots).

VR Headset
A virtual reality (or VR) headset is a device that you wear over your eyes like a pair of goggles. It blocks out all external light and shows you an image on high-definition screens in front of your eyes. The goal of the VR headset is to immerse you in a game or movie.

One of the main problems with VR is motion sickness. People to suffer from nausea after spending a period of time in a virtual environment which is due to the effects the shift in perception has on balance.

Augmented Reality (AR)
Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that layers computer-generated enhancements atop an existing reality in order to make it more meaningful through the ability to interact with it. AR is developed into apps and used on mobile devices to blend digital components into the real world in such a way that they enhance one another, but can also be told apart easily.

AR technology is quickly coming into the mainstream. It is used to display score overlays on telecasted sports games and pop out 3D emails, photos or text messages on mobile devices. Leaders of the tech industry are also using AR to do amazing and revolutionary things with holograms and motion-activated commands.

Augmented Reality vs. Virtual Reality
With virtual reality, you can swim with sharks. And with augmented reality, you can watch a shark pop out of your business card.
While VR is more immersive, AR provides more freedom for the user, and more possibilities for marketers because it does not need to be a head-mounted display.

Experience the World From Your Living Room:
Climb atop the Eiffel tower in Paris, scuba dive in Belize or experience the world’s craziest theme parks… all from your living room! Virtual reality allows us to ‘see’ the world.

Training & Planning
Virtual and augmented reality provides new and safer ways to simulate practices for things like military training, surgeons, or other areas which might normally expose people to hazardous environments. VR would essentially provide a more cost-effective, risk-free training.
Real-Time Feedback
AR and VR make training and education easier to provide instant results and analyze outcomes. This will ultimately improve performance and enable sophisticated feedback to trainees during specific tasks, ultimately resulting in increased efficiency and greater awareness or judgments of one's abilities.

Invades Privacy
Just like other modern technologies on the market, AR & VR can be prone to data hacks as well – and that's a scary thing, considering how much data is connected to virtual environments. Many people also fear the way in which personal data might be used by authorities in order to track or control individuals.

Hampers Interaction With Real-World
If one can see and experience the world from your living room, would you ever really need to leave the house? AR and VR may provide new ways for people to communicate, but they could also possibly take away an important aspect of our social life that involves human interaction.

In this week poll (Volume-14), we want to know Which one you prefer.

Virtual Reality (VR) or Augmented Reality (AR) which one do you prefer ?
