We are delighted to support Jeremy Nelson, Director of the U-M XR Initiative, in kicking off his MiXR podcast. In this first episode, he sat down with me, Michael Nebeling. We discuss a lot of the developments around XR, both at U-M and outside. Some of the key points included how I found my own way into XR, and into teaching it, and I also give examples from recent research and share my perspective on the future. I really enjoyed the conversation and I hope you do, too.
