New Gateway to Virginia’s Emerging Immersive Technology Corridor AccessVR Lab at GCubed, VIPC, and Germanna Community College Prove the Power of Collaboration with the development of Nation’s First Immersive Learning Lab for Specialized Workforce Development

March 28, 2022 (Stafford, Virginia) – AccessVR and GCubed Enterprises, Inc. (GCubed), in association with the Virginia Innovation Partnership Corporation (VIPC), and Germanna Community College, are excited to announce that the Nation’s First Immersive Learning Lab for Specialized Workforce Development is right here in Virginia! The coalition hosted an invitation-only preview event on March 28, at the GCubed office suite in Stafford, Virginia. Participants had an opportunity to experience live VR demonstrations, interact with in-person and virtual role players, engage with industry leaders, and consider how to plan for the workforce of the future.

The AccessVR Lab at GCubed will bring XR (extended reality) immersive technologies to all sectors of society, creating a shared marketplace for the distribution of XR talent, services, products, and commercialized experiences here in the heart of Virginia’s immersive technology corridor. XR is an umbrella term that describes all immersive technologies that merge or extend the reality humans experience by blending virtual and physical worlds or creating a fully immersive experience. These technologies may include augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR).

“We are excited that technologists in the Commonwealth are leading the way in the adoption of VR, AR, and MR technologies for workforce development. AccessVR and GCubed are emerging as thought leaders in the area of immersive training. Their abilities to help companies, colleges, public service agencies, and the military adopt these new technologies as immersive and effective job training tools is impressive.” said VIPC Chief Technology Officer David Ihrie.

The lab will serve as a training center for future content creators via apprenticeships, internships, and career certifications, and it will be the first of a growing network of immersive learning labs accessible to Virginia citizens and businesses to share knowledge, resources, training, and partnering opportunities. The space includes a Development Studio, a Conference Room/ Command Center, a TacMaze, 360 Video, and VR (virtual reality) editing suites, and offices.

“The lab is an exciting initiative that brings public/private government, corporate and academic leaders together to assist Virginia Commonwealth citizenry in accessing, adapting, and adopting the massive opportunities in virtual reality,” said Chief Immersive Officer J.J. Ruscella.

“With the proliferation of and advancement in XR technologies, the immersive virtual economy (and the COVID 19 pandemic) has pushed the need for individuals and organizations to embrace new technologies to connect ideas and talent within the workforce of the future, said GCubed CEO and G3CS Founder Vernon Green Jr. “We’re joining forces with AccessVR to make immersive learning a pivotal component of training and education available to everyone in the commonwealth. We want to establish Virginia as a leader and destination for those seeking not only the XR technologies but the workforce that will be trained and prepared by these technologies.”
