The Stevens XR Lab is dedicated to providing the entire Stevens community the opportunity to explore virtual reality (VR), mixed reality (MR), augmented reality (AR), 360-video and other extended reality (XR) technologies.
The XR Lab offers a space for interdisciplinary innovation, research and learning regardless of school or discipline.
What is the goal of the XR Lab?
The goal of the XR Lab is to encourage participants from all fields of study to explore how extended reality can support learning, research and other pedagogical and curricular goals by bringing together people, technology, resources and space. Students and faculty new to extended reality can come to the Lab to experience XR technology, while those familiar with it may book lab space to work on projects.
