Augmented reality also uses digital objects, but instead of being in an artificial world, you can see the real world, with synthetically created objects superimposed over it via a smart phone or tablet. AR allows virtual touch and feel providing a way to explore objects in a real space.

The main distinction between virtual and augmented realities is that while one transports the user to a completely different world, the other maintains a firm fix on reality, while simultaneously showing the viewer digital objects that appear as if they actually live in the physical world. And while they have many things in common, the experience of each is quite unique.
