APRV/ IDC France uses Virtual Reality Technology from EON Reality to Treat Acrophobia

IRVINE, Calif., September 23, 2010EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, is proud to announce that Association Promouvoir la Réalité Virtuelle (APRV)/IDC France, the Interactive Digital Center located in Clermont-Ferrand, France, currently works on an acrophobia (fear of heights) virtual reality solution based on EON Reality’s technology.More than a business or marketing tool, virtual reality has already been experienced and used in the medical sector. In fact, virtual reality could be useful in “immersive therapies” to treat “real troubles.”

The goal for the Center is to integrate a swimming pool and a 9.5 meter high diving board in the EON Icube immersive environment. Immersive virtual reality is about combining 3D visualization, sound, free navigation and real-time interaction in the virtual world. Users of the diving application will walk on the diving board until they become aware of and cured of the height. It is all about a realistic simulation where users can interact in real-time in a natural way.
