EON Sports VR partnered with the Yokohama DeNA Baystars to introduce EON Sports’ Virtual Reality Interactive Player Development software and simulation solution, the “W.I.N. Series”.
To the plethora of statistics, video clips and scouting reports accessible with the tap of an iPad, add an even more cutting-edge interactive tool that players began using in game preparation this season: virtual reality.
EON Sports VR is on a mission to change sports training as we know it. The young, Kansas City-based startup recently teamed up with retired MLB player Jason Giambi on Project OPS, a virtual reality baseball trainer powered by a consumer headset.
It’s the next big thing, say the folks who make their living predicting the next big thing. Investors are on board, too, ponying up more than $400 million for startups this year, and would-be players seeking even more money are everywhere on Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
