New software release allows for the world’s largest Virtual Reality library, the EON Experience Portal, to be experienced in Augmented Reality
IRVINE, CA, October 21, 2014 – EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, upgrades EON Mobile‘s Augmented Reality capabilities (see video) and adds support for glasses-based Augmented Reality systems like EPSON’s Moverio and next generation Android and iOS phones such as Apple’s iPhone 6, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, and Samsung’s Galaxy S5. EON Reality has developed a next generation Augmented Reality experience with enhanced features and unsurpassed stability built on the de facto standard platform provided by Qualcomm’s Vuforia. The new EON Reality Augmented Reality platform brings AR support to EON’s entire content catalog and the world’s largest Virtual Reality library, the EON Experience Portal.

With the 3D building blocks from the EON Experience Portal, EON’s customers have a treasure trove of resources to create new Augmented Reality content. EON’s global Augmented and Virtual Reality development network adds new content to the Portal daily, enhancing the creative possibilities. Easy publishing from EON Professional brings these AR applications to life, enabling users to transform their Virtual Reality simulations into AR applications.
AR Technology: (L to R) Mobile Phones, Mobile Phone With Head Mounted Display Unit, and Wearable AR Glasses
“We’ve seen the power of Augmented Reality in Industry, Education, and Edutainment,” said Mats Johansson, President and CEO of EON Reality. “To empower our users to create their own AR content and then quickly publish is a dream come true. We will continue to enable educators, students, parents, and professionals around the world to add value to their work with EON’s Augmented Reality technologies.”
EON Reality’s clients currently use Augmented Reality for training and educational purposes, now with additional support for Augmented Reality glasses, such as EPSON’s Moverio and Google’s Glass, these applications can be taken into the field anytime, anywhere. Applications can now be developed with this functionality in mind, enhancing the major training and educational benefits of Augmented Reality. This technology will empower mechanics to receive real time visual guidance and feedback while working on technical procedures, it will also make a student’s textbook come to life, and let children safely play with dinosaurs in their local park.
The EPSON Moverio AR Glasses
“Wearable Augmented Reality glasses, like EPSON Moverio and Google Glass, are the next big thing in our industry,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “We’re extremely excited to leverage the industry leading experience of our IDC Consortium members, like EPSON, to push the boundaries of what is possible in Augmented Reality based knowledge transfer. EON imagines a future where contextual knowledge materializes in front of yours eyes when you need it.”
EON Reality supports all devices made by members of the IDC Consortium, a collection of industry leading corporations that collaborates with EON Reality. Utilizing EON’s Xtend Technology, simple configuration tweaks in EON Professional are all that is required to go from phone to dome.
EON Reality has two Augmented Reality demos available for Android: The Solar System and The Vibrator Truck. iOS demos coming soon.
