    Augmented reality is different from virtual reality. Virtual reality: what you see is virtual. You only see the virtual thing. But augmented reality -- you're still seeing the real world. It just augments some virtual information on top of the real world. So, it gives you actual information but didn't replace the real world you're experiencing.
