NYC Media Lab Combine Hosts Demo Day for Second Cohort
Thanks to everyone who attended Friday's Demo Day for NYC Media Lab's Combine program. A dozen startup teams pitched ideas ranging from virtual and augmented reality to applications of computer vision and machine learning to haptics.
We appreciate the support of everyone who made this program a success, including our sponsors at NYCEDC and the NYC Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment, NYC Media Lab's member companies, and friends and mentors from across the NYC media and technology community.
Team pitch videos are now up on YouTube, and are linked for each presentation below. Details about the program are available at thecombine.nyc.
