If you want to get in on the action, this book helps you understand what these technologies are, their history, how they're being used, and how they'll affect consumers both personally and professionally in the very near future.
With VR and AR poised to become mainstream within the next few years, an accessible book to bring users up to speed on the subject is sorely needed - and that's where this handy reference comes in!
