Mobile Browser for Internet of Things Launches at Art Gallery Exhibit

Chronicled has teamed up with San Francisco's 111 Minna Gallery for the launch of Discover by Chronicled and Minna Gallery's new exhibition, "Alone Together." The launch event, Art+: Discover the Unseen, features work from artists Justyna Kisielewicz, Emily Burns and Melissa Arendt.

Discover by Chronicled, now available on iOS-based platforms, allows users to discover, purchase, insure and verify the provenance and information of objects equipped with the app and hardware. Brands that use Discover can create unique, interactive experiences for users based on real-time feedback, the company reports. Users and brands can interact with Discover's proximity-based commerce features as well.

On the back end, each piece is registered on the Ethereum blockchain, which replaces the traditional certificate of authenticity with an immutable, digital public record of authenticity. This technology, the firm explains, can be useful for authentication and engagement with many categories of physical products, including art, contracts, title registrations, luxury goods, routers, smart meters, automobiles, drones, pharmaceuticals, shipping boxes and envelopes.

The exhibit will remain on display at the gallery through Feb. 25. Discover users can attend and access exclusive content regarding the art and artists.

"Launching Discover represents a leap forward in proximity-based engagement and individual accessibility to IoT and enabled devices and objects," said Sam Radocchia, Chronicled's CPO and co-founder, in a prepared statement. "We're putting the ability to interact with any object, by learning about it, purchasing and insuring it in real time, verifying its provenance, and much more, into the hands of users."
