EON Reality’s Creator software enables non-technical teachers to create complex lessons in Virtual Reality and then share them with their students. Together with EON Experience VR, the World’s Virtual Reality Largest Library for Learning with a sample of EON Reality’s 7,000+ applications, students can explore the world from the comfort of their classrooms, learn by doing, and actually experience their lessons. For $995 (USD), a classroom receives a package consisting of: an EON Creator development license, EON Experience VR, and thirty Google Cardboards.

«The true power of Virtual Reality learning goes beyond 360 videos and images. EON Experience VR is based on a fully interactive 3D experience platform that provides learners both an experiential mode as well as a challenge and assessment mode,» said Mats Johansson, President and CEO of EON Reality. «Students learn by doing; they explore the universe, dissect frogs, conduct chemistry experiments, dissemble engines, and build new worlds. In essence, EON Reality is bringing the interactive functionality available in flight simulators to classrooms worldwide.»
New content is continually being added to EON Experience VR through EON Reality’s Interactive Digital Center network. Partnerships with subject matter experts and educational institutions around the world are bringing innovative educational content to students such as virtual field trips, interactive labs, and immersive educational experiences. The next generation of EON Reality’s software tools, such as EON EON-XR, will bring user generated Virtual Reality content to the masses. Allowing teachers, trainers, and everyday people to create their own Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality content will enable people the world over to learn better, remember longer, and decide quicker.
«Rarely in the history of human knowledge have so few provided so much to so many for so little with tools like Skype’s free call and Google’s free information search. However, still experiential knowledge transfer is exclusive, expensive, and available for just a select few,» said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. «EON Reality wants to change this by making experiential knowledge transfer available, accessible, and affordable to every student and teacher on the planet. The new EON Google Cardboard VR bundle takes us one step further to this goal by combining EON Reality’s Virtual Reality App Learning Library with Google’s affordable Cardboard VR headset.»
