Research

Virtual Reality in Research, Education and Neuromedicine

While exploring the potential of virtual reality for therapy, education and emergent economies, we lead one of the districts of Decentraland, a fully decentralized virtual world. Decentraland is one of the most promising projects of the blockchain ecosystem. After raising $24 million during their ICO, the Decentraland Foundation offered us funding to build the SciArt Lab Metaverse Campus, a space for different research, educational and experimental projects.

Commons Production

We foster multidisciplinary knowledge and technology-driven creativity, following peer-to-peer learning dynamics and unconventional research approaches to hack seemingly unrelated topics such as virtual reality, cognitive neuroscience, music, education, chemistry or digital art.


Promoting Science, Art and Technology as emancipatory tools, we help future hackers and critical thinkers to understand the world with DIY experiments, virtual reality and hands-on learning.

  • Research collaboration with universities.
  • STEAM Education in Schools and Libraries.
