EON Reality’s Interactive Mirror, a standalone Integrated system that translates a user’s Gesture based movements into an interactive experience through the use of engaging simulations. With wide-scale acceptance in Entertainment and Edutainment sectors, the EON Interactive Mirror was the most popular attraction among students of Bendemeer Secondary School.

The teachers welcomed the use of the technology as it made learning become more authentic. The students are excited to learn with the technology as learning becomes alive with the interactions and simulations. EON Reality staff has been professional in their work with us in developing the software content to ensure that it suits the learning needs of our students. They have been very prompt and efficient in supporting our implementation and in troubleshooting issues that we faced.”
