IRVINE, CA, December 19, 2022 – EON Reality, Inc. (“EON Reality”), a global leader in Virtual and Augmented Reality (XR) industry and education solutions powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), announces the release of the 9.6 update for EON-XR and its surrounding platform. As always, EON Reality’s goal with each release is to democratize AI-powered XR usage as much as possible, making the creation and utilization of immersive XR experiences easier than ever for users around the world.

There are a lot of products and features to be excited about with the 9.6 release, but few of them have the potential to change the technology world as much as EON AI Assistant.
The perfect fusion of AI and XR, EON AI Assistant does exactly what the name implies. It provides users with an artificial intelligence-based assistant that can learn any topic in a matter of seconds, and then use its knowledge to instruct the user in whatever they need to know.
This technology can be utilized for many different purposes, and is launching with several available modules alongside the 9.6 update. For enterprise users, EON AI Sales Assistant will be able to answer customer questions and lead prospective clients along their own sales journey, while EON AI Virtual Trainer and EON MRO Assist can teach and train employees through complex processes and how to best use specific equipment.
On the academic side, teachers, administrators and students alike can utilize their EON AI Assistant to help in instructing and creating educational experiences for virtually any subject. From the sciences to art history, geometry to global tourism, EON AI Assistant can bolster the learning process for any level and age range, from primary school to medical students.
For those looking to transform their existing content, EON Interact takes complex animations and changes to levels that were never before possible. This means an entire wheel of new possibilities, ranging from explosions to smoke and fire — as well as the option to transform the functionality and visuals of the objects affected. For more information, see EON Reality’s full launch announcement for EON Interact.
EON Knowledge World is the largest scale solution that EON Reality has ever created. Utilizing blockchain technology, the new product allows users to create an entire digital world of their own where they can customize, buy, sell and trade digital land, assets and environments between users. As EON Reality’s first customer-facing use of its signature technology, EON Knowledge World allows large organizations to create the world they want to spend their time in — whether that’s a digital theme park or an academic wonderland.
Persistent tracking is coming to EON Reality’s suite of AI-powered XR solutions in the form of EON Illuminate. What that means for users is that experiences created within EON Reality’s products will now be able to be locked to geographic locations and triggered by proximity or other location-based factors. This means that not only will users be able to experience the same content within the apps regardless of location, but also that users in the same location can witness and interact with the same experience any time they come across that location. Now digital experiences can be tied to physical locations around the world just like they can be brought into a user’s current surroundings.
Ever wanted to see what an experience you created on one device would look like on another only to realize the two were incompatible? Thanks to EON Universal, no one in EON Reality’s global network will ever have to worry about that again. EON Universal makes every experience created within EON-XR available on all supported devices, and it all begins today. With the 9.6 release, the first stage of EON Universal is available now, featuring support for Meta Quest (1 & 2), HTC Vive Pro and HoloLens (1 & 2), with Magic Leap 2 being added next in Q1 2023. Go ahead and build complex experiences on your smartphone or preferred platform and see it in full immersion with an XR headset.
From a business perspective, EON Marketplace promises to be one of the most transformative improvements released with the 9.6 update. By introducing the “Learn & Earn” model, users can now sell experiences they created to other members of EON Reality’s global network and buy complete experiences from expert users as well. As described in EON Reality’s launch announcement for EON Marketplace, that means that content and experiences are now easier to acquire than ever before, while power users can bring in an additional stream of revenue by selling what they’ve made.
EON-XR and EON Metaverse Builder Updates
While all of the other new products and features are major improvements in their own right, none of them will impact as many existing users as the new updates to EON-XR and EON Metaverse Builder. While EON Reality’s flagship products have been the industry standard for years, the upgrades in the 9.6 release will shift how people are able to use the renowned solutions.
For EON Metaverse Builder, new automations mean that entire experiences can be created in seconds. Knowledge Portals and Assessment Portals can be created instantly and automatically using AI, and a brand new search functionality allows users to find the assets and information they need for their content faster than ever before. Plus, new integrations with EON AI Assistant means a helping hand is never far away — no matter when it’s needed.
EON-XR gets a major overhaul as well, with a modernized look and feel coming to the global standard for XR knowledge transfer. For one thing, social-based functionality has been added, such as the ability to like, follow and comment on experiences. Add in new features like dynamic content based on a user’s preferences, curated categories like “Editors’ Choice,” “Trending Now” and “Popular Authors,” and a personalized homepage, and the user experience for EON-XR will feel brand new. As an added bonus, a modernized search ability and more functional categorization system will make browsing content and experiences lightning fast compared to the previous version.
As always, EON Reality’s 9.6 update includes some additional small tweaks and stability improvements, and make sure to stay tuned for the next EON Reality event for another massive feature reveal in 2023.
