Emerging Media

Whether it’s a killer app, a new gaming platform, or an immersive virtual-reality experience, it’s being created at NYU Tandon.

We’re exploring and developing new modes of communication that are impacting not only the worlds of art and entertainment but education, business, and healthcare. New York is the heart of the media universe, and NYU Tandon has its finger on the pulse.

We’re using motion capture to revolutionize the practice of physical therapy, developing games that encourage social activism, creating apps that increase public safety, helping NASA create next-generation user interfaces for space exploration, improving human-computer interaction, and much more.

With access to a virtual reality and augmented reality (VR/AR) lab, fully equipped motion-capture facility, recording studio, and countless other resources, our students and faculty are bridging the gap between culture and technology in new and exciting ways.
