Eastern Iowa Community Colleges invites the public to the grand opening of its EON Reality Interactive Digital Center on Tuesday.

The center will be available to local manufacturers and businesses developing virtual and augmented reality training for their employees. The college began training VR/AR students in January through a special partnership with EON Reality. The center expands that partnership even further. The grand opening festivities include two different times. Guests can attend either, or both. The first, which is focused on health care, begins at 1 p.m. The second focuses on advanced manufacturing and business at 3:30 p.m.

Because of the crowds expected, the grand opening will be held at two locations. Individuals will begin at the Figge Art Museum, 225 W. 2nd St., then move to the virtual reality lab at the college’s Advanced Technology Environmental Energy Center directly across the street. At the Figge, visitors can see presentations, hear from speakers already using the technology in the field and take a look at the EON Icube Mobile.

The Icube Mobile is a portable, multi-sided immersive environment in which participants become surrounded by virtual images and sound. Designed for convenience, the device measures about 10 feet on each side and is, essentially, a box into which the user walks and becomes immersed in a virtual-reality world. The Icube will be at the Figge, where visitors can experience it and check out the college’s other VR/AR equipment at its lab. Among the speakers will be Joe Cheben, senior engineering associate at ExxonMobil and physician Dr. Anuradha Khanna, associate professor of ophthalmology at Loyola University. Cheben will talk about the uses of VR/AR in advanced manufacturing while Khanna will discuss its use in health care.

  • I am the proprietor of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently trying to grow my wholesale side of business. It would be great if someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance . I thought that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anyone could recommend a qualified web-site where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Data List I am currently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  • Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be useful to read through content from other writers and use something from other websites.

  • This site certainly has all of the information and facts I needed about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  • Everything is very open with a clear explanation of the challenges. It was truly informative. Your website is very helpful. Many thanks for sharing!
