71 Fifth Avenue, 9th Floor
At the XR Center we encourage the exploration of this new immersive medium with the array of emerging tools we offer. Our expanding experience library is curated to include a diverse set of topics and genres. We want our students and faculty to explore, create and critique its applications to advance our understanding of its impact on media, society and education. Our goal is to promote engagement with all aspects of VR, AR, MR and 360 media, and to remove any barriers that participants might feel when entering this emerging field. Get inspired, and once you have a concept, we will do our best to provide the tools and guide you to realize your vision.
