This app combined AR and VR features to teach students to learn the molecular structures. In AR mode, need molecular target to trigger the molecular 3d model. VR game scene is used to test the learning performance. We designed three playing types for adapting most situations in this molecular app.

Introduction

  • This is a organic structure learning app that combine AR and VR features
  • Before starting, one can learn about and gain preliminary understandings of each type of molecules from the organic molecule cards designed for this software.
  • Once you have gained some preliminary understanding of organic molecules, you will be able to view the 3-dimensional (3D) structure and features of each organic molecule via the AR mode of this software.
  • Once you believe you have gained a sufficient level of knowledge on each type of the molecule, you can enter the game scenario to test on what you have learned through the AR mode screen of any of the cards, and select VR.
  • This is the only organic molecule learning app in the market that integrated learning and gaming. This makes learning no longer a dry and boring thing, and the app can also be a medium for the sharing of the learning and exchange between students or teacher and students.

Equipment needs

  • [AR Mode] One smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS, it would be better if it were models from the last two years) The smartphone or tablet must be equipped with a gyroscope (If player's perspectives cannot be turned in the game mode, it would mean the smartphone/tablet is not fitted with a gyroscope)
  • [VR Mode] Aforementioned equipment and a pair of VR glasses, and one blue-tooth joystick
    Note: The the hardware does not meet the minimum requirement, one's VR experience will be prone to drags. For iOS phones, iPhone 6S and above is recommended. There is no officially recommended Android model due to the vast variety of Android phones available.

This app can be played in three different ways

  1. VR Glasses Mode: This requires VR glasses and Bluetooth joystick that are compatible with the mobile phone in which the app was installed.
  2. Joystick Mode: This only requires a compatible Bluetooth joystick.
  3. Mobile Touch : Users operates via touchscreen.

The Organic Molecule AR/VR includes two major designs

  • Getting to know Organic Molecules’ structure:
    When a card shows up on the screen, the corresponding 3D organic molecule structure will appear, and the molecule viewing perspective can be manipulated through joystick or one’s own fingers.
  • Organic Molecule Structure learning Assessment:
    When one selects the VR label in AR mode, the app will enter the Game Scenario for testing.
    1. Complete the tasks provided in the game within the time given using joystick or with hand.
    2. A punishment mechanism would ensue if the wrong molecule was selected.
    3. When the game was over, a simple assessment will be provided.
