What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“English Teaching Assistant VR is a VR AI chat-bot that you can ask questions to, and it will answer you back in real time. It can keep up with conversations and accurately answer questions, and is set up in a house. It can dance, recite poetry, and even tell jokes. It is also able to make eye contact, and lip-sync.

This is a free tester software that has been developed to display and showcase our most recent successes with development. It is currently in development and will receive monthly updates and additions, such as new locations, new skins, and overall general changes. It will eventually be able to direct English language learning courses and programs, as well as play virtual games.

We welcome and encourage constructive feedback as we progress and grow, and believe that Early Access is the way to go for us. We would like to be able to connect with our audience from this point onward in order to cater to specific needs and build off of valuable feedback.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Up to two years.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our full version will contain new rooms, atmospheres, new voices, subtitles, updated controls, menu screen, more discussions and topics at hand, as well as lessons, games, and an overall more polished look and feel.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state is a minimal, yet playable version that contains a bot that is able to answer and ask questions, and it will answer you back in real time. It can keep up with conversations and accurately answer questions, and is set up in a house. It can dance, recite poetry, and even tell jokes. It is also able to make eye contact, and lip-sync.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“At this point, we do not plan on any price changes.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We value all feedback and questions from the community as this app will be used for educational purposes.”
