LMN-Lab: AR elements for chemistry laboratory practices
Paper i proceeding, 2016

This paper presents LMN-Lab, an innovative system with Augmented Reality (AR) elements for performing chemistry lab practices in a safer manner. LMN-Lab offers students multiple possibilities to carry out dangerous chemistry experiments that are not currently included in high school curriculum in Sweden. The system focuses on solving problems of: lab accidents with hazardous chemicals, storage space for them, reducing chemical waste and reducing teacher’s concern about student safety. The design process is described along with relevant methods that influenced the final concept. Challenges and questions raised while getting feedback from the future users (high school students) and other people who tried out the prototype are presented, mentioning the need of further research and usability tests to assure that some features, that will bring value to LMN-Lab system, are feasible and viable to implement.
