RLab is a 16,000-square-foot center that will house AR and VR startups while also providing research, education and training for New Yorkers working with the emerging technologies. The space lends itself to helping AR and VR, which often requires high ceilings and wide, open spaces. For example, on one end of RLab, developers are raising the ceiling in order to make room for a motion-capture studio.
