The city's economic development corporation announced Wednesday that it is seeking operators for the first-ever public lab for virtual reality and augmented reality development.
EDC President Maria Torres-Springer said the industry has seen a 125 percent increase in job demand over the past year and it would get a boost from a public-private partnership.
"We have to do everything we can to supercharge our tech ecosystems," she said.
