Inside RLab, a Place to Create Virtual New Realities

If the new lab is a success, it will have many beaming parents. It represents a $6.5 million investment by the New York City Economic Development Corp. (NYCEDC) and the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME), and will be administered by Brooklyn’s NYU Tandon School of Engineering, with a participating consortium including Columbia University, CUNY and The New School. … Several of the speakers at the event emphasized that, while many projects are already underway for the site, it represents an incubator for ideas that haven’t been hatched yet. “This is a really proud day for NYU Tandon and all our partners,” said the school’s new dean, Jelena Kovačević. “This will be the epicenter for things we can’t even contemplate today.”
