Test the app
Explainit app uses the latest technologies to identify an object and activate its audio description recorded by a guide, curator, or artists themselves.
Do you want to provide the visitors to your museum, art gallery, or open-air exhibit with an interesting & customized experience? It is possible with Explainit!
How Explainit works:
Depending on the applied technology, the objects can be recognized in 3 ways:
Image recognition:
the user opens Explainit, points the phone at the object and the app starts playing an audio note. This method is ideal for recognizing 2D objects, both indoors and outdoors.

Bluetooth radio transmitters (beacons) or geolocation:
the app guides the users to the objects and plays audio recordings which inform them about what they can see around and what they should pay attention to. This technology is suitable for both 2D and 3D objects in big closed spaces (beacons) or open air (geolocation).
QR codes recognition (both external or generated by Explainit):
the audio recording is activated by pointing the phone at the QR code. This method is suitable for both 2D and 3D objects, installations, books, and other items, both indoors and outdoors.
