These devices are designed to meet and total immersion in the virtual world. The brighter the emotions a person receives, the more remains positive emotions after use.

VR-devices creators actively promote them, in consequence of which the market annually updated technological innovations. I think many people know that the helmet can be improvised (smartphone, lens and cardboard).

As augmented reality glasses, which will be discussed in this article, they have a different orientation. They are much harder to find in the store, and on budget, and buying is not necessary to speak.

A key reason for these omissions – all developers forces leave at improving virtual reality. But not many think about the fact that augmented reality is much more interesting, because can harmoniously combine the virtual world with reality, thereby creating augmented reality.
