Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real-world are “augmented” by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory, and olfactory. The overlaid sensory information can be constructive (i.e. additive to the natural environment) or destructive (i.e. masking of the natural environment) and is seamlessly interwoven with the physical world such that it is perceived as an immersive aspect of the real environment
Augmented reality has been explored for many applications, from gaming and entertainment to medicine, education and business. Example application areas described below include Archaeology, Architecture, Commerce and Education. Some of the earliest cited examples include Augmented Reality used to support surgery by providing virtual overlays to guide medical practitioners to AR content for astronomy and welding.
In this project we apply AR to further the works done in the field of Chemistry. It is an augmented reality based application that lets you combine elements using markers and view the valence electrons and the mechanism to form the compound.
