Augmented Reality refers to experiences that use devices like your cell phone to allow you to interact digitally with the world around you. Simple things like scanning a QR code or more advanced technology like Snapchat/TikTok filters that change the appearance of your face are everyday Augmented Reality experiences.
Virtual Reality refers to entirely digital experiences using dedicated devices, like a VR headset that completely masks your vision with a small computer screen, fully immersing you in a digital world. The metaverse refers, in part, to a digital world accessible through these kinds of devices.
