IRVINE, Calif., April 2, 2012 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced the release of the new EON Icube Mobile, a portable multi-sided immersive environment in which participants are completely surrounded by virtual imagery and sound. It offers the most user-friendly interface –– from hardware setup to software deployment. This high impact 3D immersion solution benefits many different markets such as energy, aerospace, healthcare, AEC, education and entertainment.
The hardware construction truss frame is in a lightweight sturdy aluminum material that is easy to set up and it comes with a reusable shipping container for easy transport. It is a front projected system consisting of 120″ Diagonal Size Screens with 4:3 aspect ratios. Ceiling height required is 9 feet (2.7 m) and display foot print required is 10 x 10 feet (3 x 3 m). The system cost starts at less than 30% compared to traditional EON Icube costs.
“For the first time ever we can offer a fully immersive motion tracked interactive 3D experience at about 1/3 of the cost compared to traditional Icubes while at the same time taking up roughly 1/5th of the floor space and fitting within a 9 foot ceiling height. This combination will allow full immersion to be used in areas and applications that we have never reached before,” said Mats W. Johansson, President, EON Reality, Inc.
EON Icube software utilizes high-end active stereo projectors, with stereoscopic glasses and motion tracking position trackers and allows users to be completely immersed in a virtual world. 3D objects float in space with high quality graphics and can be manipulated by users in real-time.
Motion trackers are implemented to monitor the user’s position and orientation and are used to calculate a stereoscopic perspective view. This allows the user to freely move into and around floating objects. Peripheral devices, such as wands and optional gesture gloves, are integrated into the system. EON Icube software has the ability to rapidly deploy 3D interactive virtual simulations using a series of built-in classes of objects, drivers, and a large library of 3D models, textures, and easy to use built- in functionalities.
EON Icube Mobile can be used as a single or as multi-user experiences with EON Coliseum Icube option. The remote collaboration system option is ideal for safety and technical training, architecture, and construction purposes. Read more in the EON Icube Mobile brochure.
