Dynamic sketch+voice annotations
Enhance the way you communicate with your customers, community or suppliers by attaching audio notes to paper surfaces (flyers, posters, noticeboards, menus…)
This tool allows you to turn any surface into an interactive digital object. Think about these possibilities:
- A local produce shop sends out printed flyers to the community detailing the delicious new offerings available. A potential customer takes a picture of the flyer and then can tap on areas of the display to hear the shopkeeper talk about recipes the products might be used in.
- Imagine a community noticeboard in your local coffee-shop. When a new announcement is posted up, the advertiser takes a picture of the board and then taps on the area of the photo that shows their newly added item. They record some description that supplements the printed material and later other customers can take a photo of the board and listen to the content as well.
