What are iBeakens?

An iBeaken is story read by scanning a QR-code with a smartphone or digital tablet. The story can be about a place, a person, a statue or an object in a gallery, museum or historic house. An iBeaken story can include text, images, video, audio and hyperlinks to websites or web pages. The text can be presented in many different languages.

iBeakens are being used increasingly by heritage sites, museums and galleries to enhance visitor experience and provide visitor statistics. The QR codes can be displayed on markers, highlighting items of significance. They can also be part of an iBeaken cluster - a sequence of stories within one QR-code to be used on a guided walk or museum or gallery tour.

You can create your own iBeakens - go direct to ibeaken - or let us know your requirements, and we will build them for you.
