SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, — Dimension X, a pioneer in immersive and spatial XR technology, proudly announces a definitive and strategic partnership with PIXO VR, the leader in enterprise immersive XR training, to integrate the Bonfire™ solution with the PIXO Platform™ to power a massive influx of creators, designers, developers, and trainers to build world-class immersive experiences more quickly, and affordably.
Like Figma did for UI/UX design, Bonfire simplifies content creation in XR. It enables all creators, even those without technical skills, to create immersive, story-based experiences more quickly and simply with a drag-and-drop, simple interface.
Bonfire is a groundbreaking, no-/low-code XR creator solution. Bonfire includes a decision-based story tree similar to a video editing timeline, but more powerful for non-linear, branching experiences based on user decisions. Dimension X has also developed Sparks, a new file type standard for 3D assets that are contextually intelligent, reusable components with traits, causes and effects that can be customized using simple drop-down selectors.
The PIXO Platform has a long history of enabling innovators to deploy, utilize, and measure XR training effectiveness. Industry titans including Ford, Bosch, Saudi Aramco and General Dynamics, among others, have partnered with PIXO over the last decade to improve employee engagement, retention, performance, and safety among other outcomes. But until now, the significant time, technical expertise, and investment required to create immersive experiences have inhibited the broad adoption of this powerful technology.
Together, PIXO and Dimension X are accelerating the maturation of Bonfire as the only no-/low-code XR content creation solution that generates enterprise-quality, fully interactive immersive modules with drag-and-drop simplicity.
“Having perfected our PIXO Platform since 2015 to become the market-leading XR training distribution solution, we’ve been aggressively searching to find an integration partner with an exceptional content creation solution,” said Sean Hurwitz, CEO and founder of PIXO. “Time and again, in our search, we found other solutions to be too dumbed down, or too complicated. The Dimension X team has been very thoughtful about the Bonfire architecture, interface, and workflow as they balance between simplicity and advanced, customizable capabilities. We are excited to integrate Bonfire into our ecosystem as the PIXO content creation solution.”
The partnership between the two companies is already off to a fast start. In only four weeks, using Bonfire, the team demonstrated a savings of up to 50% in time and cost to create a fast food order fulfillment training.
“To date, broad market adoption of XR technology has been significantly hampered because of a massive void in immersive experiences that were just too hard to make,” said Scott Robertson, CEO of Dimension X. “That changes now. We are thrilled to be partnered with PIXO on the front end of a major market inflection to enable simple, and fast experience creations for training, gaming, entertaining, productivity, and marketing use cases that can be managed from PIXO’s platform.”
