KANSAS CITY, Mo., September 10, 2013 – EON Sports VR, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider for sports performance training, announced the launch of its premiere football simulation software, SIDEKIQ. SIDEKIQ is a Virtual Reality software that allows coaches to easily create any play or scenario they want their players to experience. Once the play is created, the athlete can experience the play in Virtual Reality on a wide variety of immersive 3D systems.
SIDEKIQ was developed to help athletes increase the amount of plays they are exposed to. Coaches create plays with a drag-and-drop interface and can assign a wide variety of animations to make the game seem more realistic. When an athlete is in Virtual Reality they feel as if they are on the field, crowd roaring and in real live game action. The user can view the game from any angle in third person point of view, first person point of view and a special «follow» mode where the camera follows a certain player.
«We launched this with the University of Kansas thinking that only NFL and NCAA teams would be able to benefit from the technology. What’s exciting though, is we are in a technological revolution where really expensive hardware is now much cheaper. This means that while we are able to still work with the NFL and NCAA teams, we now can offer this software at a price point that youth and high schools football teams can receive the benefits of using it.» Brendan Reilly CEO EON Sports VR.
EON Sports VR will be going on a nationwide road tour to showcase its technology to NFL, NCAA, and high school teams. Stay tuned for schedule and dates to be released. If you would like EON Sports VR to visit your city please contact us here.
Reilly says, «The main reason why teams fail isn’t lack of hours spent practicing…its lack of purposeful hours spent practicing. All coaches and athletes spend hours watching game film, but are the players learning from game film? Pilots, technicians, and many people in other industries have been using this technology for years because, as humans, we learn better by doing. SIDEKIQ uses the same technology those industries use, and offers football players a better way to learn and prepare.» Learn more via our website.
