The digital media lab is a space where the public can come explore new digital technologies, like virtual reality (VR).The prototypeD team can import blueprints for a new building into VR so that a person can experience the space as though they are walking through it in real life.

The lab is also a space for workshops on solar power, and different artistic projects, for example the mural in this tiny house is a collaborative project by multiple artists, including Komi Olaf, Asma Inam, and Allan André:
