HE AUGMENTARIUM is a visualization testbed at the University of Maryland that is advancing research and scholarship based in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).

Launched in 2015 with funding from the National Science Foundation, the facility joins computer scientists with medical professionals, sociologists, language experts and others to explore immersive media applications for science, engineering, medicine, commerce, education, and the visual and performing arts.

The lab, part of the Maryland Blended Reality Center, is supported by the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies.
