NYU Washington Square News >> Cardboard VR Goggles >> VIDEO: Tandon’s Cardboard VR Goggles Take Class of 2020 to Mars

video: tandon’s cardboard vr goggles take class of 2020 to mars

Earlier this week, WSN reported on Tandon’s cardboard virtual reality googles that it’s giving out to admitted students in the class of 2020. Meant to be paired with the Tandon Vision app, which can be downloaded on Apple’s App Store and is the true innovation of the two, the creation is just the latest in a string of virtual reality developments from NYU’s Brooklyn-based engineering school. Now, the WSN video team is here to show you what all the hype is about.


The highly interactive expo will showcase dozens of the most promising and exciting research projects from every academic department, as well as exhibits from the school’s Center for K-12 STEM Education, which is dedicated to boosting science, technology, engineering, and math education in New York City’s public schools.

NYU Dean of Engineering Katepalli R. Sreenivasan will welcome the public to the event to view the results of the school’s undergraduate, graduate, and faculty research. “This is an opportunity to show the scope and importance of our work, especially to young visitors who might not have considered a career in a STEM discipline,” he said. “Engineers and applied scientists develop practical solutions for critical problems faced by society, and our hope is that the work demonstrated at the Research Expo will light a spark of interest in students to become future generations of creative inventors, innovators, and technology entrepreneurs.”

Vikram Kapila, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and one of the organizers of the event added, “The Research Expo will be eye-opening and enjoyable for everyone, from the most seasoned technologists to the youngest visitors. From robotics, to augmented reality, to the latest in bioengineering, the Research Expo will demonstrate just how many incredible developments are taking place right here in Downtown Brooklyn at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.”
