How does it work?

Ludenso Explore is a new solution for publishers to enrich physical textbooks with 3D models, videos, and links through recent advancements in Augmented Reality (AR) technologies. The user scans the pages of the physical textbook with a phone or tablet, and the book will come to life. 

AR models

Stimulate curiosity and increase student engagement by adding interactive AR experiences to your physical textbooks. Any book, no matter the subject, content, or objective, can make use of it. Got any new ideas for interactive learning experiences, why not let us help you bring your books to life?

AR videos

Enhance learning by adding videos to your printed material. The videos can be played directly in the book, and will be streamed from the designated media server. The only thing we need from you is the right video link and a PDF of the page you’d like to bring to life.

AR links

Turn your pages into beautiful QR codes, and bridge your physical and digital learning universes. If you have additional resources online that are related to your physical books, the 3D links will couple your physical and digital resources. When a reader scan a book page, they can be sent directly to your articles, language support, tasks, or other digital materials.

Request a trial

Give your editors the book creation toolbox of tomorrow. We will guide you through the simple step of the creation process, and help you utilize the full potential of your learning materials. Renew and modernize books that are already published, or bring AR experiences into your next book. No special print in the book is required.
