Abstract:Augmented Chemistry (AC) is an application that utilizes a tangible user interface (TUI) for organic chemistry education. Based on the outcome of an extensive evaluation; we are in the process of extending the AC system. Firstly; for enhanced interaction; keyboard-free system configuration; and internal/external database (DB) access; a graphic user interface (GUI) has been incorporated into the TUI. Three-dimensional (3D) rendering has also been improved using shadows and related effects; thereby enhancing depth perception. Secondly; AC has been ported to different operating systems and is now compatible with Linux-; Windows-; and Mac OS X based platforms. This enables the use of a wider range of hardware: USB and Firewire (IEEE1394) cameras are now supported. Finally; system capacity to import and visualize molecules from an extensive XML-based DB has been realized. This gives users the ability to download and interact with any molecule up to a certain complexity.
