New Tech Lab Will Push the Limits of VR and AR Storytelling

The lab will partner McClatchy, Google, and YouTube and include an incubator for emerging startups.


The parent company for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram has launched a new partnership with Google and YouTube to push the limits of virtual and augmented reality, the newspaper reports.

McClatchy’s Video Lab West will test new types of video storytelling at Sacramento’s old train station. The 1926-era train station just completed a $36 million renovation. Easy access to modern rail lines makes it easy for people to connect to Silicon Valley where Google and YouTube are based.

McClatchy, Google, and YouTube will make their share of the tenant space into an incubator for emerging startups.  

In addition to the Star-Telegram, McClatchy also owns the Sacramento Bee, and 28 other daily newspapers in 14 states.
