EKTO VR is a technology company in Pittsburgh, PA that builds wearable robotics to enable the next generation of fully immersive VR experiences. The company’s flagship product, EKTO ONE, is the world’s first robotic VR movement solution, empowering users to walk naturally through digital content while staying safe, comfortable, and engaged. Use cases include training, design & visualization, and sales & marketing for industrial companies (e.g. chemical, energy, mining, and biotech).
Within training, EKTO ONE enables companies to enhance the realism of their simulations and accelerate the development of skills and experience by allowing trainees to focus on the learning objectives instead of navigational controls or workspace size limitations. EKTO ONE-enabled solutions remove trainees from potentially dangerous situations and provide an affordable alternative to on-site training courses.
EKTO ONE was publicly revealed in September of 2020 with coverage including VentureBeat, the Pittsburgh Business Times, TweakTown, and UploadVR, and features including VR Trailers & Clips, Eric for President, and The Gadget Show on UK Channel 5. The Developer Kit, EKTO DK1, was showcased at the Industrial XR Global Summit and Augmented World Expo in 2021 with recent coverage including the Ghost Howls and Digital Trends with over 30M monthly readers.
