Mixed Reality Laboratory


The Mixed Reality Lab (MRL) works closely with industrial and cultural partners to explore how our innovations can be applied to many different areas of everyday life including art and performance, games, the home, learning, transportation, healthcare and the environment.

We are also fully committed to transferring knowledge from the MRL to industry through collaborative projects and commercialisation activities, and to the general public through touring performances and installations in science centres, museums and galleries.
