UEL students demonstrated to be XR pioneers through the EON-XR Competition.
IRVINE, CA, April 27, 2023 – EON Reality, Inc. (“EON Reality”), a global leader in Virtual and Augmented Reality (“XR”) industry and education solutions powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), is proud to announce the outstanding achievements from the University of East London’s (UEL) students during the EON-XR Competition – A New Learning Reality. The competition, which ran from March 6th to April 7th, invited students from four participating schools to submit their innovative ideas on how augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technologies could enhance learning experiences in their respective fields.
The contest attracted 67 entries from various disciplines, including Architecture, Computing & Engineering; Health, Sports and Bioscience; Psychology; and the Royal Docks School of Business & Law. Each school had Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners, with the four Gold winners also competing for the overall University Prize, which included Gold, Silver, and two Bronze awards.
The top prize, a £1,000 Amazon voucher, along with the rest of the winners, was awarded at a special ceremony held on the Docklands campus today. In addition, all entrants who attended the event received a pair of Homido glasses as a token of appreciation for their participation.
Dan Lejerskar, the founder of EON Reality, attended virtually and announced the winners during the awards ceremony. Addressing the students, Lejerskar said, “I really hope that this competition has inspired you to keep exploring the possibilities of AR and VR in education. I can’t wait to see what else comes out next from UEL.”
This year marks UEL’s 125th anniversary, and the university has been commemorating the milestone with various special events, including a visit from King Charles III a month ago. As part of the ongoing celebrations and the keen interest in AI-powered education, UEL will continue to collaborate with EON-XR for future initiatives that leverage the potential of AI & XR technologies in transforming educational experiences across various disciplines.
