About the Ingenium Digital Innovation Lab
What is the Ingenium Digital Innovation Lab?
The Ingenium Digital Innovation (DI) Lab takes Ingenium’s collection beyond the physical walls of the Ingenium Centre. This lab enables users to develop new approaches in digitization, 3D modeling, visualizations, games and game engines, and augmented, virtual, and mixed-reality applications.
