Factor Magazine 25: AR vs VR

In this issue of Factor, which marks two years of publishing our free digital magazine, we look at the rival technologies that are augmented reality and virtual reality.

From VR vices to virtual communication, VR is growing faster than ever, but AR also has a few tricks up its sleeve. We look at how both technologies are set to progress, and how we might be seeing a future where the two combine.

Plus we investigate accusations of voter suppression in the US primaries, and consider the secret history of Sid Meier’s Civilization.
