Interactivity has become a key part of what we do for fun and entertainment. We use our phones to walk around the neighborhood and catch virtual creatures. We call up our favorite movies and shows from an online menu. VR headsets are creating whole virtual reality worlds for us to immerse ourselves in. Interactive media is an ever-growing and expanding field, with job growth outpacing the average. With accessible and practical tips, this volume explores how makerspaces and hackerspaces provide students with hands-on experience in coding and designing for interactive media to be prepared for these dream jobs of the future.
