EON Experience VR is focused on education and training using augmented reality, immersive virtual reality, and interactive experiences. Through EON Experience VR’s K-12, higher education, vocational training, and edutainment experiences, students and trainees learn by doing and visualizing complex concepts.
These experiences are split into three major subject areas: industry (e.g. engine maintenance, oil field services), education (e.g. the human eye, solar system), and edutainment (e.g. “Play with Dolphins” and “Nefertiti”).
“By bringing EON Experience VR to the Moverio BT-200, we wanted to create a mobile experience that accelerated knowledge transfer and truly immersed our users,” said Dan Lejerskar, chairman of EON Reality. “Virtual reality is much more compelling when it becomes a seamless experience and augmented reality comes into its own when you’re presenting the user real-time contextual information.”
“We’re honored to be working with EON Reality, a veteran in the field of AR and VR solutions, who will be providing more than 100 mixed reality experiences to the Moverio Apps Market,” said Anna Jen, director, New Ventures/New Products for Epson America. “The Moverio BT-200 smart glasses provide developers the opportunity to create exciting consumer and enterprise Android-based applications that take advantage of the Moverio platform’s unique ‘look-through’ transparent display capabilities.”
Leveraging Epson’s patented core technologies, the Moverio BT-200 offers an unparalleled binocular smart glasses experience optimized for augmented reality applications.
Micro projectors located on each side of the lens project transparent overlays of digital content directly in the user’s field of view over the real-world environment.
In addition to the Moverio BT-200’s sensors for head-motion tracking and hands-free navigation, the smart glasses include a front-facing camera for video as well as image capture that detects real-world markers for augmented reality (AR) applications.
