New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering will debut a 3D cardboard viewer in its student acceptance packages, taking recipients on a journey to a microscopic, intracellular world — a virtual reality (VR) game environment where they can watch cells communicate using chemical signals.
NYU Tandon debuted the experience, called Tandon Labs, at the SXSW Gaming Expo in Austin, Texas. NYU Tandon was the only school invited to showcase a VR game that is being used as an admissions tool, but Tandon Labs is available to all as a free Android or Apple download.
