Virtual Reality Lab 2015
In partnership with Samsung Global Innovation Centre, NYC Media Lab and NYVR, LoNyLa/TimeWave launches the Virtual Reality Lab in New York City.
TimeWave gathers creative media artists and technologists to explore the use of technology in storytelling and to invent new forms of media and entertainment.
Hosted by Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), NYU, the VR hackathon took place at the NYU Tisch building at 721 Broadway. Sponsors include: EEVO, Fake Love, Freedom 360, Leap Motion, Littlstar, Oculus, Unity 3D and VISR. The event gathered creative media artists, designers and developers to implement prototypes of diverse VR formats – experiences, storytelling, applications and games.
The programme was produced by LoNyLa (London-NY-LA), a transatlantic initiative fueled by graduates of Yale University and the Yale School of Drama and a powerhouse Anglo-American team.
