“With the growth of cost effective Virtual Reality, people around the world now have access to the same technology that militaries and large corporations have used for years,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “The fact that I can have, on my phone, a simulator that once cost over a million dollars dramatically changes how we learn. We can bring world class knowledge transfer to people who otherwise would go without. We can detach acquiring knowledge from where you’re from and how much you earn.”
