Description/Abstract

Augmented Reality (AR) is an emerging method of visualization that has potential applications in many fields such as education, healthcare, and communication. We have created an augmented reality molecular visualization tool that allows the viewing of molecules such as proteins with the Dreamworld AR glasses. Molecules are displayed in a virtual environment in which the user can look around while wearing AR glasses. We have implemented rotation of molecules and 6 DOF camera movement for navigation. A molecule is represented using the COLLADA ISO-standardized 3D interchange format that is ported from UCSF Chimera, a popular molecular viewer. The purpose of this project is to make emerging technology accessible for K-12 STEM education.
