What is AR smart packaging?

Augmented Reality is a technology that overlays virtual 2D or 3D assets over physical reality, experienced through a mobile phone, head mounted displays and/or glasses

With AR smart packaging, you’ll meet customer expectations, accelerate your brand’s eCommerce growth by connecting with consumers on a more personal level! 


What’s the difference between smart packaging, interactive packaging, and augmented reality packaging?

These terms basically designate the same thing: a type of packaging that involves technology to achieve various purposes, ranging from customer interaction, engagement and product information to facilitated logistics or storage, to security or authentication. It can be implemented as a visual element, sticker, or a REID chip.
