February 16th, 2016 – EON Reality Inc. has announced the upcoming release of EON Creator AVR (Augmented Virtual Reality), a mobile based application that enables users to easily create, share, collaborate, and publish Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) knowledge content. Using EON Reality’s patent pending Augmented Virtual Reality (AVR) technology, EON Creator AVR combines both Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality with a large AR/VR component library and assessment database to create one of a kind learning experiences. EON Creator AVR also leverages built in intelligence to help students and teachers create interactive learning content directly on their tablets, smart phones, VR headsets, or AR glasses without requiring programming skills.
EON Creator AVR allows anyone to create, upload, and share Augmented and Virtual Reality knowledge content. These apps can then be shared on EON Experience VR, an AR/VR based personalized learning library. With EON Creator AVR’s technology, multiple people can be immersed and collaborate inside the same application (AR or VR) as well as interact with the content and each other. Gamified learning elements further enhance the experience as learners can explore, play, compete and work together. Built in assessment and coaching encourage and guide students to yield a higher level of retention and knowledge transfer.
EON Creator AVR’s drag and drop functionality allows users to quickly add interactions, different behaviors, and physics to over 8,000 AR/VR building blocks. These 3D models and 3D scenes are pulled from EON Reality’s Augmented and Virtual Reality library, the EON Experience Portal and EON Experience AVR. These building blocks can then be further enhanced with external media such as YouTube videos, Wikipedia entries, PowerPoint slides, and more.
According to EON, access to AR/VR content represents a significant challenge to the growth of the AR and VR market. EON Creator AVR has been designed to address this content shortfall, make user-generated Augmented and Virtual Reality content easy to create, and to be a completely accessible platform for users around the world.
The official launch of EON Creator AVR will take place at the EON Experience Fest 2016 in Laval, France on March 16-17th. Access to EON Creator AVR will be by annual or monthly subscriptions and will be available on the majority of VR headsets and mobile devices. EON Creator AVR is now released to a limited number of selected users during the closed beta test phase and will be released to the public during the first quarter 2016.
