The simplest explanation is that the Cricut Explore is an electronic cutting machine that looks sort of like a printer. But instead of printing your designs on paper, it uses a very precise blade and a series of rollers to cut out pretty much anything you can imagine, including vinyl labels, decals for shirts, paper crafts, and more.

The Cricut Explore Air 2 is a personal Crafting Machine. It can Cut over 100 different materials including paper, cardstock, vinyl, Iron-on (Heat Transfer Vinyl), Faux Leather, Sticker Paper, Vellum, and Fabric. The Cricut Explore Air 2 can also write/draw with pens and markers and score your project with a nifty score tool.
The Cricut Explore Air 2 has a Cut Smart 2 cartridge for holding blades and pens (no new blades are going to be added beyond what is currently available). Both have two clamps. The deep-cut blade cuts up to 1.5mm, while the knife blade (Maker only) cuts up to 2.4 mm.
The Cricut Explore Air 2 has a knob you set to your desired material while you control that entire Design Space with the Cricut Explore 3. Plus, the start button on the Explore 3 has a more logical triangular "play" symbol rather than a Cricut logo. The two-tone look and metallic stripe of the Explore Air 2 are gone; the Explore 3 is all one color.
The Cricut Explore Air is a die-cutting machine ( aka craft plotter or cutting machine ). You can think of it like a printer; you create an image or design on your computer and then send it to the machine. Except that instead of printing your design, the Cricut machine cuts it out of whatever material you want!
