The collaboration brings world-class EON-XR solutions to NYP.
IRVINE, CA, February 22, 2022 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, has reunited with Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) to broaden the knowledge metaverse in Singapore.
A leader in STEM education and since its founding in 1992, NYP has been using EON Reality’s XR technology since 2012. In 2017, EON Reality and NYP partnered to expand the use of EON-XR for XR-based education and training. Additionally, they installed legacy hardware such as a four-walled EON Icube™ system and added EON Ibench Mobile software to NYP’s XR training facility at the time.
Today, EON Reality will help NYP take another leap into the future of interactive teaching, adding the university to EON Reality’s global and ever-growing knowledge metaverse. With access to groundbreaking XR solutions, the university will have yet another method of interactive teaching that gives its students more opportunities to excel in their respective fields.
“Nanyang Polytechnic is one of Singapore’s premier STEM-focused institutions and a longtime user of EON Reality technology. We’re grateful that their students have demonstrated how vital the use of virtual reality can be for knowledge transfer purposes,” says EON Reality founder Dan Lejerskar. “Now that Nanyang Polytechnic can draw upon and contribute to the knowledge metaverse, I know they’ll help us broaden the scope of educational information available there and bring more institutions into the fold.”
With the new EON-XR delivery and welcome to the knowledge metaverse, Nanyang Polytechnic’s educators will offer “hands-on” training to their students without the usual logistical restrictions in many forms of engineering and vocational studies. With lifelike 3D models and immersive environments at their students’ virtual fingertips, professors can create stimulating and interactive lessons and experiences for those on campus as well as those studying remotely.
Longtime members of EON Reality’s Singapore network, Nanyang Polytechnic remain essential users of EON-XR, and they’ll soon be contributors to EON Reality’s knowledge metaverse. Over 80 academic institutions have become creators and curators for EON’s knowledge metaverse in recent months, and each creates and shares experiences based on their areas of expertise. As faculty and students at Nanyang Polytechnic master EON-XR, they will provide crucial additions for EON Reality’s future academic partners.
