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.
