Samsung Media Innovation Lab (SMILE)

Samsung Media Innovation Lab (SMILE)

The Samsung Media Innovation Lab for Education (SMILE) makes it possible to experience the latest technological advances, and the Lab helps to accelerate the development of innovative computational media content by educating the next generation of mediatech-, storyworld- and game-developers while addressing future challenges of media technology and society.


AAU’s partner Samsung has sponsored the state-of-the art equipment in the SMILE Lab. The lab makes it possible to work with nine 55” screens, which are placed on a 3 x 3 video wall and a panorama set-up with five 65” curved 4K screens.

In addition, students and employees may book two class-sets of tablets, GearVR Virtual Reality headsets with Galaxy smartphones, Gear360 cameras, smartwatches and work stations that are optimal for real-time graphics, motion capture and game research.


The lab is located at A.C. Meyers Vænge 15, 1.007 (by the bridge).
