In Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality News
March 27, 2020 – EON Reality, a provider of augmented and virtual reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, has recently announced its ‘Remote Classroom 3.0’ and ‘Remote Industry 4.0’ packages. Additionally, EON Reality has dropped the paywall on the basic version of its AVR Platform, meaning that users will be able to sign up through the AVR Platform website and access thousands of existing remote lessons — while also crafting some of their own — for free, as part of the company’s contribution to educators and entrepreneurs around the world during the COVID-19 outbreak.
For those who want the complete freedom of the advanced premium features, EON Reality has stated that it will also co-invest in large-scale packages as a means to assist as many businesses, schools, and governments as possible throughout the current pandemic. They come as an introductory method for new enterprise and academic users to embrace VR and AR as a way to learn, train, and perform.
The company highlighted that as the world reels from the global spread of COVID-19, the value of VR and AR has never been more apparent. Teachers forced from their classrooms and employees made to work from home as a result of quarantine has put a significant strain on both education and employment. Many industries and education institutions are moving their training and teaching curriculum online into videos. However, EON Reality states “studies show that users lose focus within 6 minutes of watching an online video, providing a severely subpar experience for everyone involved.”
This is where the company’s AVR Platform comes into play, as it provides an all-encompassing solution for immersive and interactive educational and career-based content. Bringing advanced augmented and virtual reality technology into one user-friendly package that requires no previous coding or programming experience, EON Reality states that its flagship product is about using high-tech solutions to enhance the everyday human experience.
Centered around the mantra of being “EASI” (Effortless, Accessible, Self-Service, Interconnected), the AVR Platform has helped users across several different industries. EON Reality is now offering a more affordable version to new users who may now be needing the benefits of the platform for their own newly-remote campus or company.
Dan Lejerskar, Founder of EON Reality, commented: “In this uncharted time, we want to provide AR/VR solutions to teachers, students, employees, and employers, so they can easily and confidently make the switch to completing business and classroom activities from a safe distance. The AVR Platform has long been one of the most complete methods of remotely transferring knowledge and skills from a distance — regardless of subject, audience, or specific usage — and now it is needed more than ever before. We’re happy to take this opportunity to help as many people as we can by getting the AVR Platform into the hands of those who otherwise could not afford it.”
