Augmented and virtual reality is everywhere these days. Smartphone companies are focusing heavily on the possibilities of AR, and you can find affordable VR goggles in most major electronics stores. 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.
