Get Virtual Reality Access Through Mobile Devices
The EON Experience VR app brings thousands of applications from EON Reality’s extensive Virtual and Augmented Reality Library to mobile devices. EON Experience VR, available now on both Google Play and App Store, supports Android and iOS devices, such as the Samsung Note 4 and Apple iPhone 6, and mobile headsets, like Samsung Gear VR, Zeiss VR One and Google Cardboard. EON Experience VR is focused on education and training using augmented reality, immersive virtual reality, and interactive experiences.
Through EON Experience VR, students and trainees learn by doing and visualizing complex concepts. These experiences are split into three major subject areas, one of which is industry oriented (e.g. Engine Maintenance, Oil Field Safety Training). Using augmented and virtual reality, EON Experience VR places users into realistic situations that simulate patient visits, work environments, and labs or lessons where and when users need it, not just in the classroom or training center.
