The following is a list of written or planned posts on the topic of X3Dng listed in order of best reading. Articles and links will be updated as they become available.
Documentation and examples for ThreeJS.org are complete. There are a lot of contributors who are always adding material. In the world of simple-VR, there is the StereoEffects for rendering. This is an effects that renders the scene into left/right eye split-screen.
