Minor in Augmented & Virtual Reality

The emergence of Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) is taking technology through the next level of immersive experience. Augmented Reality is the technology that helps the user to connect its direct or indirect physical world with the help of digital information provided by computers in real-time. It helps people to think beyond their imagination.

AR combines both real and virtual objects and is one of the most interactive technologies in the present scenario.AR applications are widely available in mobile devices, audio-visual media like news, entertainment, sports becoming an essential part of our lives. Virtual reality is the experience that can be similar or different to the real world. It helps to educate and entertain users and therefore find wide applications in gaming, entertainment, medicine, training industries, and military purposes.
