So if you’re curious about how you can join the fray, the Humble Book Bundle by Springer Nature will help guide you in the right direction.

Go for the $8 tier, and five more DRM-free ebooks will be yours to keep. Tackle the complications of mixed reality, rethink what it means to be “in” a virtual world, and get into the nitty gritty of programming for VR.
