Emergent Reality Lab

The Emergent Reality Lab is a platform for research in virtual reality and mixed reality, combining the real world with immersive virtual environments and the immersion of storytelling and gameplay. The lab will feature a reconfigurable, multiwall immersive display with stereoscopic projection, motion tracking, and multichannel audio, supporting new research in education, intervention, culture and the arts, and applied games and simulations.
