  6. 6. Azumas definition of AR in 1997Augmented Reality (AR) is a variation of Virtual Reality (VR).VR technologies completely immerse a user inside a syntheticEnvironment and while immersed, the user cannot see the realworld around him. In contrast, AR allows the user to see thereal world, with virtual objects superimposed upon orcomposited with the real world.Therefore, AR supplements reality, rather than completely replacing it. Ideally,it would appear to the user that the virtual and real objects coexisted in the samespace, similar to the effects achieved in the film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"
