HIT Lab, which is based at the University of Canterbury, is celebrating two decades at the forefront of research into human interface technology.
Director Rob Lindeman said it acts as a bridge between academia and industry.
"We take real world problems, work on them in academia and then roll out the technology and the intellectual property back into industry."
And the centre has had a fair amount of success, attracting $14 million in research funding over the past decade.
Its three main research themes are based around virtual reality, augmented reality and games development.
The facility has gained a global reputation through its use of advanced technologies to solve real-world problems.
