A new hub offering virtual- and augmented-reality experiences to students and professionals opened at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Wednesday, funded by a multi-million-dollar investment from the city that officials said is worth every penny because the space will produce the future leaders of the fast-developing industry. … The Economic Development Corporation doled out $5.6 million to fund the so-called RLab that Mayor De Blasio last year tapped leaders of New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, headquartered in America’s Downtown, to create and run.
