The principle of virtual reality is to create a simulation as close as possible to reality so that the user moves and interacts with this virtual world.

The principle of augmented reality is to use the real world to display information in 2D or 3D (numbers, images and texts). The user can interact with this information. This technology superimposes virtual elements to our real-world view. The real world is thus increased with digital information that can provide more details about its environment.

Mixed reality is a mixture of virtual reality and augmented reality, there will be the superposition of digital information that is numbers, images and texts in the real but also the superposition of living elements or objects.
