Two years ago, Tandon [then] professor and alumnus Jose Molina and director David Gochfeld had an idea to merge the world of art with interactive technology. The two imagined a live performance where actors and audience members on separate sides of Earth could come together for a theatrical performance in real time. … Utilizing an array of advanced game design technology at NYU’s Media and Games Network — MAGNET — at Tandon, the team behind “To Be with Hamlet” created a world which would serve as a virtual theater unrestricted by real-world physical limitations.
