Bienvenue a Sofitel Singapore – Augment Reality
EON Reality’s AVR Platform powers augmented reality hotel guest experience in collaboration with Epson and SO Sofitel Singapore.
Bienvenue a Sofitel Singapore. EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, together with partners Epson, a global leader in projection technology and visual communications, and SO Sofitel Singapore today released the first augmented reality smart glasses design experience within a hotel for Southeast Asia. Using EON Reality’s AVR Platform and Epson’s latest Moverio BT-300 smart glasses, members of the public can embark on an audio-visual adventure, SO Augmented, within the French luxury boutique hotel’s lobby (for public) and So Lofty suite (for guests staying in the room).
The pilot project, which runs from today until the end 2017, will use the Moverio BT-300 smart glasses, the world’s lightest binocular see-through smart glasses on the market with an OLED display, to bring graphic elements within SO Sofitel Singapore’s heritage building to life.
Guests can look forward to a true see-through immersive experience with the Moverio BT-300’s HD high-contrast display, which uses Epson’s cutting edge silicon-based OLED (organic light emitting diode) digital display technology. Powered by the AVR Platform from EON Reality, the curated experience transports viewers into a part-real part-virtual world where informative content and videos blend seamlessly with real design elements found within the hotel lobby and suite.
“We are honored to partner with Epson, market leaders in smart lightweight eyewear, and SO Sofitel Singapore, leaders in Luxury and Hospitality,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “Augmented Reality brings the hotel’s story to life and becomes a part of the guests experience. EON Reality AR apps on smart glasses immerse guests in the SO Sofitel Singapore brand message while providing enjoyable AR experiences. Through the EON AVR Platform new experiences can be added continuously for the guests enjoyment.”
“It is our pleasure to partner with leaders in Luxury Hospitality, Design, and Augmented Reality to curate this experience that is a first in the region. With Moverio, Epson believes that the potential of Augmented Reality is limitless for commercial and enterprise usage – to create exceptional experiences using one of the most lightweight and comfortable smart eyewear on the market. By bringing the flavours and secrets within the heritage building to life through our technology, we look forward to deliver new and exciting multi-sensory experiences and showcase the familiar in a brand new way,” said Mr Siew Jin Kiat, Regional General Manager (Southeast Asia), Printers and Visual Products Division, Epson Singapore.
