Engineering Animation Inc.


EAI Interactive was formed in 1996 by Engineering Animation, Inc., a services and software company based in Ames, Iowa (aka the "Silicon Prairie") known for VisLab, an animation package, and the first commercially viable 3D interactive visualization software package called VisFly. EAI, to broaden its scope of development, purchased a small video game developer in Salt Lake City, Utah headed by Bryan Brandenburg called Software Arts International. This new studio became the primary location of EAI Interactive's activities. In addition to game development, EAI's medical and scientific illustration team developed a variety of 3D interactive educational products. In 1999, it was bought out by Unigraphics Solutions, Inc.(UGS Corp.).
