Virtual Reality education promises and challenges
Virtual Reality has always captivated educators’ imagination as a futuristic tool to improve knowledge transfer with higher degree interaction and immersion. However, due to the expensive hardware, complex integration requirements, lack of easy-to-use software and relevant education content until now Virtual Reality has been out of reach for the vast majority of academic institutions around the world.
Let the playful, powerful virtual learning begin
With EON Virtual Reality Labs, academic institutions have a single home for all the interactive 3D and Virtual Reality content created by educators, which can then be easily downloaded and experienced on any 3D Laptop, EON Icatcher, EON Interact, EON Holographic I, EON Holopodium or the ultimate EON Icube.
