AR/VR Garage

The AR/VR Garage is a collaborative R&D facility in Auckland, New Zealand, designed to grow talent, capabilities and innovation in the creative tech sector and to connect our talent internationally.

/  A project R&D workspace where local, international and globally significant AR/VR projects are delivered by resident specialist companies.

/  A place where start-ups collaborate with established companies to build knowledge and grow the AR/VR community.

/  An AR/VR event hub.

/  A place where AR/VR companies access tools and technology that will accelerate New Zealand's tech growth.

Specialising in AR/VR technology, we’re a place where start-ups work with major corporates, tertiary institutions, and local and central government agencies; and where local and international R&D projects are accelerated, and ideas shared. We partner with key international players who are seeking to fuel Auckland, New Zealand and Oceania’s AR/VR community, which includes world-class game developers, screen and film producers, animators, educators, and digital storytellers.

Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development is proud to deliver this facility in partnership with founding sponsor Datacom.
