Technology is developing quickly, making a lot of things that were before impossible feasible. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are two examples of the cutting-edge technology that, only a few years ago, were considered science fiction. However, they are now an essential component of everyday life. The distinction between augmented reality & virtual reality is the one that causes the most misunderstanding in the world. While Virtual Reality is entirely immersive, augmented realities is a synthetic, computer-simulated reality or reproduction of a real-time setting that allows a user to interact with the reproduced actual settings. Optical head-mounted displays (OHMDs), which combine virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR), are close to becoming common gear that consumers may purchase and use to do 3D tasks. Front-facing cameras are a feature of certain OHMDs that enable augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) capability. Seeing the actual world may alter interaction with virtual items in addition to preventing collisions with the surroundings. It is unknown if virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) provides any advantages over one another for almost all jobs.

One of the most crucial areas of research in the present-day IT field is the development of augmented reality as well as virtual reality technologies. These two technologies have been used in a variety of fields, including education, healthcare, construction, military operations, and entertainment, and research on their technical aspects is progressing concurrently with research on their evaluation and the development of user-centered optimisation programmes.

The starting place for this article was the real estate show. The authors selected the appropriate assessment index as well as quantification technique through comparisons with virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) in the physical display field, compared the evaluation results of each technology, and then created a user experience evaluation model for each.
