Augmented And Virtual Reality Design

Augmented and Virtual Reality Design are creative applications for engineering immersive experiences. The design process includes developing and manipulating 3D objects, sound effects, and animation to provide an interactive visual representation of an environment. Designers use tools such as 3D modeling software, 360-degree cameras, motion trackers, and programming languages to combine various elements into a virtual world or interactive reality experience. Examples of Augmented and Virtual Reality Design include simulation-based training programs and virtual reality games.
