Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are technologies which have the potential to change the way we interact with each other.
By creating entirely new environments (VR) or adding new layers onto the existing ones around you (AR), these technologies will fundamentally change how technology and the real world relate to each other.
Samsung has a range of products such as the Gear headset that utilise these technologies and is looking for ways to use VR and AR to improve education in the UK.
