SINGAPORE, November 6, 2019 – EON Reality nabbed top honors for best AR/VR solution in education at the EduTECH Asia 2019 Awards in Singapore, beating several contenders from various global companies and shortlisted from the initial 300 submissions across various categories.
Awarded the gold at the Suntec Convention Hall last night, the win affirmed EON Reality’s decision to build a multi-reality platform to create immersive learning experiences for classrooms around the world.
“EON Reality’s EON-XR platform was built in consultation with leading academic consultants around the world,” said Dan Lejerskar, Founder of EON Reality. “The standards provided by them enabled us to build a multi-functional platform truly aligned to the needs of educators at all levels.”
Central to the design of the award winning EON-XR Platform is its user-friendly interface, which allows teachers to customize and create lessons for any subject with more than 870,000 3D assets from the vast EON library. The platform also provides the option to choose between 3D learning, virtual reality, and augmented reality, and most recently, 360 degrees immersive learning, creating a multi-modal experience for AR and VR education.
EON Reality Singapore’s Managing Director, Sridhar Sunkad, received the award on behalf of the company by paying tribute to the efforts of the global team who worked collaboratively to develop the flagship platform.
“The win would not have been possible without the collaborative efforts of our development teams across California, Gothenburg, and our team in Singapore,” said Sridhar Sunkad, Managing Director of EON Reality Singapore. “This award is a testament to the fact that the countless iterations and improvements we have made over the years were headed in the right direction.”
The award was presented to the AR/VR education solution which could best address the judging criteria of innovation, technical capability, and demonstrate a proven method that best meets advanced learning objectives.
