Junaio 3.0 - scan a painting in a museum to get information about the painter

Junaio is one of the top augmented reality mobile browsers out there; the two most famous competitors are Wikitude and Layar. Today, metaio, the developer behind the application, is releasing Junaio 3.0 with a key feature labeled “Scan The world”. It allows users to scan anything from pictures to bar codes or QR codes and get information about it from Junaio’s channels – note that the objects or images scanned have to be stored in the Junaio database in order to provide interaction with users.

For example, scanning a painting in a museum gives access to the painter’s information, a barcode or a QR code scan can trigger access to a website, a shopping micro-site or other related information, depending on the data sources available from various partner platforms.

See below a few visual examples of what can be done using the Scan feature in Junaio.
