QR codes benefit many places of leisure such as museums, galleries, zoos, aquariums, planetariums, science museums, and seasonal events like science fairs. They provide augmented reality (AR) experiences that users can take home with them on their mobile phones for more interaction and extended educational use. Since dynamic QR codes are changeable, staff in places of leisure can change the information at any time without removing or replacing the physical code if they don't want to. People will enjoy scanning them and receiving relevant information for a value-added touch to their visit.
By scanning a QR code in places of entertainment, users can receive educational materials, multimedia content, games, interactive activities, and more. These are excellent for following up on information interesting to guests of any age and demographic and are a fantastic way to educate and keep young learners entertained at home.
Instead of just walking through a place of leisure and looking at artifacts and reading about animals, scanning QR codes provides more AR experiences and interaction with multimedia content such as audios, PDFs, self-guided tours for convenience, and content to bring home on mobile devices.
Printed materials waste paper and ink and cause unnecessary litter in beautiful public spaces or get thrown in the bin. The cost of printed materials is very high and isn't sustainable. QR codes printed on banners, walls, and posters that everyone will see, will allow people who scan to enjoy the content and store it on their mobile phones.
With printed materials, one had to reprint them when information was updated, resulting in wasted previously printed materials. With dynamic QR codes, the information can be changed as often as necessary, allowing for educational content to be up to date, as well as seasonal event changes and scheduling. You can edit the information in the QR code without having to reprint a physical code. With Supercode's smartly designed dashboard, organize all of your QR codes in customizable folders so you can edit them at any time. Also, deleting a code and creating a new one to add to folders if you choose, is simple.
Many of the people visiting places of leisure are tourists and if they do not understand the local language it is advantageous to scan a QR code and translate the information in their mobile phones.
