The Limitations Of Augmented Reality

The Limitations Of Augmented Reality


Augmented reality is a technology that allows you to see the world, but through a screen. It’s not quite virtual reality, but it can still be very cool. Augmented reality apps include things like Pokémon Go and Snapchat filters. You’ve probably seen these apps in action on your phone or computer before:

The Limitations Of Augmented Reality

AR might be a little trickier to implement than VR.

AR is a different experience than VR. As we mentioned before, AR requires more of a user’s attention because it’s not as immersive as VR. This can make it harder to implement and requires more technology and hardware in order to work properly.

The technology is still immature.

Augmented reality is still in its infancy. The technology has not yet matured enough to be used by the general public, and it may never do so if we don’t take steps to address some of its limitations.

Augmented reality can be an effective tool for businesses looking to improve their customer experience, but there are several limitations that need to be addressed before it is ready for widespread use:

What you see may not be what you get (WYSIWYG).

The limitations of augmented reality

You can’t see what you’re pointing at. In the real world, you can look at something and touch it with your hands to get a better idea of what it looks like. But with AR, the only way to see an object is through a camera lens–and cameras are limited in their ability to capture objects from different angles and perspectives. This means that if you want to get a good sense of how something will look when placed in 3D space (which is often necessary when designing), then you’ll have no choice but to move around until your phone detects it in its field of view before taking pictures or video clips from all angles.

Augmented reality apps can drain battery life quickly.

The biggest drawback of augmented reality apps is that they can drain battery life quickly. The reason for this is that AR apps are more demanding on your device’s hardware than other types of software, as they’re constantly rendering 3D images and video while simultaneously tracking the user’s position in space (and possibly other objects).

To reduce the impact on your battery life, try closing AR apps when you’re not using them and turning off any features that you don’t need. If you want to keep using an app but don’t want it draining power from the rest of your phone’s functions–such as location services or motion tracking–try force quitting it by pressing Home then tapping Apps & Notifications > App Name > Force Stop

You can’t see your keyboard when using an AR app on a phone.

One of the most notable limitations of any AR app is that you cannot see your keyboard when using it on a phone. This makes it difficult to type, especially if you’re trying to send an important email or text message on your smartphone. You can use the keyboard in the app itself, but not in the phone’s main interface (aside from dictation).

This isn’t necessarily bad news for all users though; some people find it easier to type with their thumbs than with two hands holding their devices at arm’s length away from themselves–and this limitation might allow them more flexibility while doing so!

Augmented Reality is not expected to replace any other form of entertainment or media consumption in the near future.

Augmented Reality is a tool that can be used to enhance the experience of other forms of media. It does not replace any form of entertainment or media consumption in the near future.

AR has limitations that prevent it from being a complete replacement for other forms of entertainment, such as movies and TV shows. For example, you will never be able to watch an entire episode of your favorite show while walking down the street because it will block your view and make you step into traffic (not recommended).


In conclusion, augmented reality is still a nascent technology that has many limitations. While it may be able to provide some interesting experiences for users, it’s unlikely that AR will replace any other form of entertainment or media consumption in the near future.
