HAMLIN: An augmented reality solution to visualize abstract concepts for science education
Paper i proceeding, 2016
This paper presents Hamlin, an augmented reality (AR)
system for science education that detects the invisible
physics forces in nature. It collects and interprets raw data
information in 3D space and displays spatial visualizations
of it. Students use their smartphones with the Hamlin
mobile app to view in real-time the principles the instructor
is explaining. Because Hamlin is a visualization tool, not
just a sensor box, it offers many ways to see physics data.
This paper discusses how the prototype was implemented
for sound visualizations, and how teachers and students can
toggle various wave and frequency visualizations to tie the
concepts together and improve student comprehension.
