Exploration is the act of searching, for the single purpose of discovering something new.
Innovation requires research, testing, victories, failures, observations, learnings, analysis, ... and even some fun along the way. DICE Labs is a venue for dedicating time and resources to an area of interest, unhindered by predefined notions or ideal outcomes. This is an aspect of DICE that everyone participates in.
It is in these moments, that new discoveries may come to light, and become readily available for future applications.
