At the basics of it, Augmented Reality (AR) is usually a term given to describe when technology changes the way we see thing by super imposing images into real life. Here’s the only definition on google:
This is a different from virtual reality and it’s super different from personal perspective. Virtual reality completely changes everything you see.
Personal perspective can just be defined like this:
(Obviously that comes from an article about personal perspective in writing but it’s also the first definition that comes up on google)
So why even compare personal perspective with AR, surely the discussion should be about AR vs VR. Well no, here’s where the discussion is:
People often talk about everyone having their own personal perspective, the way they interpret things and process reality, this is done by our own brains, we all see things differently or similarly to each other but never the exact same way. It’s different to AR because AR literally changes reality to show you something different from what’s really there.
Now, I don’t want to see things in the thread that are just defining the 2, I’ve already given definitions of both of them and explained them. The question in the OP is rehtorical you don’t need to answer it, I already have (unless you want to give a better answer) I want to discuss what’s written in the OP and while there won’t be a punishment or anything for people who just post definitions of them both it will bug me a little. But now I’ve told you that you’ll probably do it oh well.
Basically just, if you post the definitions of both and say “that’s the difference” then yeah, well done but I want to focus more on your interpretation of the difference.
