“NEWVIEW”, a joint project by Psychic VR Lab (Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo), which provides the VR/AR/MR creative platform STYLY (https://styly.cc), PARCO CO. (Headquarters: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo), and Loftwork Inc. (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo), will open the NEWVIEW SCHOOL (hosted by Psychic VR Lab Inc.) Taiwan School in July 2021, where students can learn XR* as a comprehensive art form.
*xR is a generic term for technologies that provide new experiences by combining the real world with the virtual world, such as VR (Virtual Reality), AR (Augmented Reality), and MR (Mixed Reality).
Through the summer and fall courses, we aim to create experiences where the real and virtual worlds are linked.
- 1 Exploring experiences where the real and virtual interact using sensor devices
- 2 Summer Lecture “Creation of VR and alt-controller (alternative controller)” (July 3 – August 28)
- 3 Fall Lecture “Creation through Interaction between AR and Realistic Environments” (Aug. 22 – Oct. 16)

NEWVIEW SCHOOL Organized by
Psychic VR Lab Inc.
NEWVIEW was launched in January 2018 as an experimental project and community to pioneer new creative expression and experience design in 3D space. In addition to activities to present new expressions to society by creating experimental works with artists from diverse genres, NEWVIEW AWARDS and NEWVIEW SCHOOL, an art school for learning xR as a comprehensive art form, are developed to discover, nurture, exchange, and disseminate the next generation of creators.
