Virtual Reality (VR) is the future of entertainment. In just a few short years VR will become one of the most popular platforms of entertainment since the creation of movie theaters. For EON Reality, however, a VR company who specializes in VR/AR knowledge-transfer applications, they see no reason why we can’t include education into the mix as well. Which is why EON Reality has announced their launch of the Idome – a large-scale, interactive VR theater – in Laval, France!
“We really want to awaken the curiosity for learning in children and get them excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. The EON Idome provides a Virtual Reality platform that engages participants through interactive and immersive content. Then, once the experience is over, guests can take it home on their mobile phones or tablets. We want to inspire the next generation of achievers, whether marine biologists, astronauts, or historians.”
– Dan Lejerskar, EON Reality Chairman
With its premiere in Laval, France, over a thousand people will be able to experience the Idome, of which EON Reality has prepared three different applications to experience: Oceans Alive Dolphin Adventure, Dragons: Real Myths and Unreal Creatures, and Space Police. Each application will provide their own sense of adventure and problem solving, but will heavily rely on the collective unit of those 24 guests participating. And to top it all off, given EON Reality’s extensive range of VR/AR applications, once those guests leave the Idome, they can then bring the entertainment back home with them.
EON Reality’s launch of the Idome is going to revolutionize how people entertain themselves. It’s the combination of education, video games, and film watching, creating an entirely new social interaction that everyone can participate in and enjoy. VR and AR is changing the game, and if EON Reality has anything to say about it, the game will include everyone to benefit from.
Imagine sitting in a Idome theater, gazing into the screen as you and others experience the same application from a different perspective. You don’t know exactly how everything is going to work out, given the fact that each outcome will largely be determined by each guest’s actions. Whatever happens, however, you’re provided a sense of adventure, of which you’re not experiencing alone. The Idome becomes a testament of our future – adventure and education, together.
