Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality both gives the users a virtual experience but are very different. With AR a user stands with one foot in the real world and one in virtual simulating artificial objects in the real environment. However, VR completely replaces the user's real-world environment with a simulated one.
Virtual Reality isolates a user from the real world, typically via headset devices, creating a completely artificial environment for a user to be an inhabitant of it. Here, the users' perception of reality is completely based on virtual information.
Population examples of virtual reality experience are Playstation VR, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream, and Google Cardboard. Also, you can have the virtual reality experience with YouTube’s 3D-VR-360 videos, using headset-mounted smartphones.
