Extended Reality (XR) and Gaming

Extended Reality (XR)

XR, also known as extended reality or cross reality, is an umbrella term for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR). XR technology is used in applications that include education, gaming, retail, medicine, engineering and design. AR/VR/XR software engineers and developers are in high demand, and job growth is high.
