3.  Throwback Thursday: Minecraft Anniversary 

It was ten years ago that Minecraft was born. Since then it has become a gaming sensation that has embedded itself in pop culture iconography. After being acquired by Microsoft in 2014, the IP has also become a highly effective educational tool which many users believe is a perfect fit for integration with immersive technologies. 

So when, at this year's Microsoft Build developers conference, the company's CEO Satya Nadella closed his keynote with a "one more thing" reveal - a teaser video implying that augmented reality integration might finally be coming to the platform, it understandably got journalists and fans quite excited. Mark Hachman, who was one of the lucky few to try a Mixed Reality demo of the game four years ago with the HoloLens, sees enormous potential in the match. 

The video concludes with a promise of more information to be announced on its website on May 17th, which is Minecraft's official birthday.
