All said and done, however, the cost factor is a major point of difference between the two. It is no secret that VR bears much greater expense as compared to AR technology; the obvious reason being the sophistication of the technology, as well as the cost of developing it. As far as physical devices are concerned, AR is definitely more versatile in its own regard, owing to the fact that all it requires is a mobile device, therefore getting the job done without elaborate infrastructural
