Conferences and meet-ups are excellent ways to dive in and learn about Spatial Computing (VR/AR/MR) companies and technologies.  They often has opportunities to try out new experiences. The Bay Area is extremely fortunate to have many meet-ups weekly and conferences nearly monthly. See the calendar for details.
