How are innovative technologies changing the future of media? We look for answers to these and similar questions in the Prototyping Lab and have companies willing to experiment develop testable prototypes with talented students from Hamburg universities in just one semester. Keeping pace with the times, the teams in the lab work on technological challenges and are supported by renowned industry experts.
You missed our VR Prototyping Lab in 2018? Here’s a recap:
Planning for the Prototyping Lab 2019 is ongoing. This years focus will be on XR (Mixed Reality) and AI (Artificial Intelligence).
We are currently looking for media companies, that would like to partner in this year’s lab. Care to join us? Click here!

- Integration into a highly innovative community
Prototyping Lab gets underway
Students met their contact persons from the companies where they discussed initial project ideas and formed project teams.
How do new technologies change access to content? What new formats can emerge and how can you earn money with them? These answers will be pursued by the project teams from October through the end of January 2020.
Time to get started!
We’re excited – In January 2020 we will be able to see the final Prototypes.
In January 2020, the teams at the wrap-up show what they have done in the prototyping lab over the past three months.
You can be there as a guest, there are a limited number of seats. We look forward to seeing and hopefully inspiring you to partake in future Prototyping Labs – since after the Lab is before the Lab!
Register until 10/1/20.
Prototyping Lab 2020
