XR Lab (formerly Virtual Reality Lab)
From 2015 – 2017, TimeWave launched and ran XR Lab (formerly Virtual Reality Lab), a 3 to 4-month program that provided media creators and technologists with an opportunity to create VR/AR/MR prototypes, brainstorm and explore complex formats using immersive technology, and collaborate with like-minded members of the XR community.
In partnership with the Media and Games Network (MAGNET) at the NYU Game Center, the lab was supported at various times by TIME Inc., Hearst Technology, Samsung Global Innovation Center, NYC Media Lab, NYU ITP and Oculus/Meta.
Advisors included Ken Perlin, a professor in the Department of Computer Science at New York University and directs the NYU Games For Learning Institute, and Clara Fernández-Vara, a game scholar, designer, writer and an Associate Arts Professor at the NYU Game Center.
The XR Lab Team consisted of J Dakota Powell (founder), Jackson Tam, Talal Choudhury, Angelique Anderson, Matthew Cornelius, Maxwell Foxman and Will Wurtzebach.
