The introduction of the knowledge metaverse could change learning, training and performing as we know it.
EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces the launch of the EON Knowledge Metaverse, an all-encompassing global project to build a new and improved interconnected world for users to learn, train and perform in.
By bringing the knowledge metaverse to life, EON Reality will merge the physical, virtual, and augmented reality worlds to reshape the way people everywhere experience their realities. Physical objects and spaces will be complete with informational annotations, activities, and other enhanced knowledge points, while users in virtual reality will be able to digitally teleport themselves into real-life settings around the world.
Of course, building the knowledge metaverse up to a formidable experience for numerous locations, subjects, and topics isn’t something that EON Reality can do alone. It’s a global project that requires millions of people, which is why the XR giant is recruiting all sizes of governments, academic institutions, and entrepreneurial businesses to participate and help add their own experiences to the knowledge metaverse. EON Reality knows this is the only way to bring millions — if not billions — of high-quality XR spaces and experiences to the global citizens of the knowledge metaverse, which is why the California-based company has already laid the technological groundwork to make it a possibility.
In addition to teaming up with a network of partners and 42 million users across 73 countries to begin the foundation of the knowledge metaverse, EON Reality has already identified two of the other necessary components for a successful launch: infrastructure and creation platforms.
For infrastructure, EON Reality is able to rely on the world’s largest hosting company, Amazon Web Services, to provide a cloud-based backbone. With a presence in 190 countries, the AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure is the most secure, extensive, and reliable cloud platform, offering over 175 fully featured services from its global data centers.
Combined with EON-XR’s hardware-agnostic infrastructure that provides support for 30+ manufacturers, EON Reality is already able to bring the knowledge metaverse directly into people’s lives. This includes supporting most smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops that over 5.3 billion people already own, as well as VR- and AR-specific devices from companies like Microsoft, Facebook, Apple, Magic Leap and other technological giants.
The next ingredient — a platform on which to efficiently create and experience the XR spaces and lessons — is where EON Reality specializes. The code-free XR development platform EON-XR is the industry standard in XR lesson and experience creation, and the power of tools like digital twin technology and virtual teleportation through new products like EON Merged XR and Spatial Meetings makes it more comprehensive than ever.
With both the software accessibility and hardware compatibility already ironed out, the only missing component from the knowledge metaverse is the creator base, which has been EON Reality’s focus for the last several months. The company’s existing XR network now focuses on allowing students from all corners of the world to contribute to the knowledge metaverse by using the self directed learning method and the 9 Step Implementation Plan. Teachers, trainers, specialists, and other professionals are adding their contributions as well, particularly for more advanced and complex subjects. This is all made possible due to the boost in popularity EON Reality saw during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the user base increased by 819%, adding millions of licenses around the world.
Presently, EON Reality’s goal is the creation of 10 million knowledge metaverse XR experiences in the next 12 months with its global network of partners. By developing this massive base of experiences and spaces for the foundation of the knowledge metaverse, EON Reality hopes to significantly aid the post-pandemic recovery in many countries by helping to transform education while preparing students and workers for the jobs of the future.
