LOS ANGELES--()--Today, iwot productions unveiled a new collaboration with D1srupt1ve, an AI software pioneer, to form True Source, a joint venture company on a mission to transform Robert Jordan's acclaimed The Wheel of Time® series into the first-ever AI-enabled entertainment franchise. The company’s AI service will be branded as the “One Power and will energize an array of products and services that will extend, expand, and enhance the franchise's current and future media formats, including books, television, movies, video games, and location-based entertainment.

The collaboration between iwot productions and D1srupt1ve signifies a groundbreaking shift in how fans engage with their favorite entertainment franchises. D1srupt1ve's dedication to the ethical application of AI technology complements iwot production’s goal of elevating The Wheel of Time from passive and static media into an immersive, interactive, and personalized experience.

“Today’s trailblazing partnership with D1srupt1ve is at the forefront of an AI revolution in the entertainment industry,” said Rick Selvage, President of iwot productions, “The One Power will give rise to a new generation of products and services that will reshape the industry, setting the stage for a future where AI is seamlessly integrated into all facets of the entertainment experience, and becomes an essential part of how we consume connected media.”

The first product to channel the One Power is The Guide— True Source’s revolutionary personal digital companion that serves as the gateway to a comprehensive AI-powered database encompassing the entire Wheel of Time universe. Today, The Guide is fluent in 40 languages and able to understand more than 100. This language capability will be expanded to dozens of other languages, including The Old Tongue from The Wheel of Time. The Guide will draw upon the One Power to create an unparalleled franchise experience, inviting users to delve into every aspect of the world with extraordinary depth and personalization.

The Guide will be available as a mobile app on Android and iOS devices and can also be accessed through a web browser on desktop computers running Windows and macOS. Users of The Guide will be able to try out its capabilities for free, but extended use and access to its full suite of features will require a One Power subscription. Beginning today, True Source is accepting applications for a private beta program of The Guide, which will precede a general release of the service that is planned for summer 2024. Interested persons can find more information about The Guide’s private beta program at: betasignup@theonepower.ai.

The One Power service will also be embedded within “Cards of Eternity: The Wheel of Time,” a forthcoming digital trading card game from Aether Games that will be set in Robert Jordan’s epic world of fantasy, where forces of Light and Shadow battle in a world teetering on the brink of apocalypse. Blending groundbreaking AI, masterful CGI, and strategic gameplay, Cards of Eternity redefines the digital trading card game genre with a narrative-driven experience that is as expansive as the story itself. More information about Cards of Eternity will be contained in a forthcoming announcement, including news about the availability of a beta program.

“Through One Power, services embedded in applications such as The Guide and Cards of Eternity, D1srupt1ve’s MAGICAL AI technology will make the 4.4 million words of The Wheel of Time books accessible to everyone, allowing fans to delve into the story’s magic and mystery like never before,” said Nathaniel Hunter, founder and CEO of D1srupt1ve. “But One Power will do much more than dispense facts about The Wheel of Time; it will intensify the emotional ties that bind fans to the franchise, bringing stories and characters to life in a way that is both dynamically interactive and deeply personal.”
