Virtual Reality mostly can be defined as virtual object in virtual Environment. Virtual reality (VR) is basically a computer generated environment which simulates reality whereas augmented reality mixes this environment generated by computer by computer graphics into real environment. In other words Augmented Reality (AR) technique is the combination of actual reality and virtual addition to it. AR lies in between the spectrum of Reality and virtual reality. AR enables to place virtual object on real world. But in AR & VR similar components are needed to create both types of environment.

With Recent advances in Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), a new concept called as Mixed Reality (MR) or hybrid reality has evolved which merges concepts of AR & VR both. The potential of mixed reality is endless. AR/VR/MR has potential to bring revolution in various field e.g. healthcare or Medical Field, retail & ecommerce, education, communication, real state, fashion world etc. This paper gives insight about current and future applications of VR/AR/MR in various domains like education, military, gaming, medical and fashion world.
