Spring 2019 Open House

Thursday, April 11, 2019 (9:30AM-12:30PM)
Building 22, Brooklyn Navy Yard | 3rd Floor

During the fall and spring semesters, faculty and student teams from across NYC Media Lab’s university consortium worked on emerging technology and immersive media prototyping projects in collaboration with the Lab’s member companies. To celebrate the recent prototyping and entrepreneurship innovation emerging from the Lab, the Spring 2019 Open House brought together engineers, designers, data scientists and creative technologists to show their demonstrations of new technologies and user experiences. Prototypes, research projects and startup demos were available throughout the event, and guests participated in a hands-on exploration of the future of media.

The event was hosted by RLab is the first city-funded VR/AR center in the country. Fueled by a $5.6 million investment by NYCEDC and MOME, RLab will support startups, talent development, research and innovation. When complete in 2019, RLab will house 16,500 square feet of co-working labs, classrooms, studios, and more on the third floor of Building 22 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

NYC Media Lab’s 2019 Spring Open House hosted over two dozen teams from across the Lab’s programs. To learn more about the participating teams, browse through our program pages below.
