Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) apps work on a variety of technologies. GPS, Gyrometer, Camera are some of the components developers can effectively use to give the user the experience of AR and VR. Augmented reality apps can be classified into marker based and non-marker based apps. Marker based apps can bring up 3D objects on screen when the camera is pointing to a specific image called marker. Non-marker based apps do not need a marker image.
Apps that can be used in VR headsets split the screen into two and show almost the same image. This splitting can effectively create a 3D effect for the viewer. There are other technologies like location based triggering etc that can be effectively brought into an nice AR app
