Imagine being able to steer yourself along a capillary the way you would in Need for Speed, or shoot at chemical signals like you would in any first-person shooter game. That’s possible now with a new virtual reality (VR) app from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering that enables users to explore and engage with a microscopic, intracellular world in a game-like environment. The VR experience, called Tandon Labs, is being used as an admissions tool with a simple goal: Attract future engineers and scientists who are hyped about STEM.
