what-is-geolocated-sound

What is geolocated sound?

A sound (or multiple sounds) contained within shapes on the map, which create geofenced areas. These will trigger content when listeners physically walk inside, by using GPS to determine their location or their proximity using iBeacon technology.

Layer sounds in subtle or rich ways, guide your audience, surprise and entertain — a completely different way to experience our physical environment, a threshold where magic happens ✨.

what-is-audio-ar

What is Audio AR (augmented reality)?

Sound that layers and enriches the physical world without sucking you into your screen. Stay present, appreciate your surroundings in all its richness while experiencing the additional reality layer. Oh and no clunky, expensive hardware: just your headphones.

Learn about history, artefacts in front of you, natural environments, get lost in a treasure hunt, spooked by a horror experience, don’t miss a landmark or an interesting corner in the city you are visiting, get guidance during an event or elevate your running experience… 💡 possibilities are endless.
