This Center, which is co-located at HCT’s Dubai Men’s Campus, will serve the UAE market and will expand EON Reality’s presence in the Middle East. EON Reality has a long track record of success in the Middle East delivering Energy, Cultural, Education, and Real Estate applications to key regional clients.
EON Reality UAE will develop region specific content, localize existing EON Reality content, and help deploy the EON EON-XR Platform to regional enterprises and education institutions. The IDC contains a Virtual Showroom with over 16 different AR and VR systems, a VR Innovation Academy, and an EON-XR Development Lab.

As part of the Dubai Men’s Campus, the VR Innovation Academy (VRIA) will teach students the entire Augmented and Virtual Reality development process. The course is comprised of four months of coursework followed by five months of project based learning. The students at the HCT EON VRIA will create EON-XR content for their fellow students at HCT as well as work on real customer projects to bolster their portfolio.
“Countries around the globe are looking for an answer to teach students more efficiently, effectively, and at a lower cost,” said Mats Johansson, President of EON Reality. “We’re extremely excited to partner with EAIG and HCT to expand EON Reality’s training and educational offerings through EON Reality UAE. As part of the EON Human 2.0 Initiative, this new IDC will help regional companies and educational institutions, through Augmented and Virtual Reality knowledge transfer, find better ways of educating their citizens and training their workforce.”
