“ARMolVis” is an Augmented Reality Molecular Visualiser for everyday products. Users can hover over 2D photos of several everyday products and the corresponding molecule that is predominant in that product appears in 3D on the device.
Chemistry is all around. The app will allow users to identify the chemical’s name, formula and 3D structure of several everyday products including food, household items, stationery, hardware and health.
The 2D photos are available at
and can be manipulated so that the 3D molecule can be viewed from various angles.
This mobile application is a joint project between the Computer Centre; Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science and School of Computing, all from the National University of Singapore.
