December 4, 2016 – Syfy unveils its first-ever innovation lab, Syfy Labs, with an interactive booth at CES 2016. Syfy Labs is a new initiative from the network that creates content and experiences for existing and emerging platforms — from virtual reality to 3D printing, second screen experiences and Internet of Things integrations — by seamlessly merging the latest technologies into the storytelling experience of the channel’s original programs.
The Syfy Labs booth will feature:
- MakerBot’s Replicator and the new MakerBot Smart Extruder+, giving attendees access to printable files from their favorite Syfy programs via MakerBot’s Thingiverse.
- The Expanse VR app for Samsung Gear VR enabling attendees to explore spacecraft and settings from the heralded drama series in high-quality 3D VR.
- The Syfy Sync app working with Philips Hue to enable attendees to experience an immersive lighting experience with custom built “lighting tracks” that showcase Syfy’s original programs.
Attendees and press can test out all of these immersive experiences and speak with Syfy Labs executives, including Matthew Chiavelli, Senior Vice President, Syfy Digital, who heads up Syfy Labs.
