Technical requirements

XR is an advanced topic that not everyone uses in their day-to-day jobs. We hope you can still enjoy this chapter without the knowledge of cross-reality (VR, AR...) development, although you will get the most out of this chapter if you are familiar with some of these XR topics and maybe have even done some programming for XR. However, there should be enough information about the topics for beginners to be able to understand them, too.

This chapter could also serve as a fun introduction to XR, to get comfortable with it and allow you to learn more on your own. As with the other chapters, the code related to these examples is presented in our GitHub repository:

Note, we have also uploaded an XR sample app in there that we will use for the testing examples.
