Augmented and Virtual Reality Projects
Force and Motion App
Rosegrant's Virtual STEM Research Lab designed and developed the application to utilize the Merge Cube. It is 2 ¾ inches on each side with a unique well designed pattern recognizable by the camera. Rosegrant's Virtual STEM Research Lab used the Merge Cube SDK to implement a holographic space in the cube. When the users point the cellphone camera to it, they will see a spaceship within a star field that creates the effect of flying through space. The right side Menu on the screen has buttons to represent the three dimensions.
Once selected it activates a second screen where users manipulate the initial velocity, force, force duration and force delay. After making a selection and launching the simulation, a rocket blasts visually represents force and an arrow represents the direction of motion. On the left side users have real-time data for and can create graphs of displacement, velocity or acceleration.
USE THE APP
Download the app free for Android here
iOS version coming soon
Here is a free lab to get you started. This lab is designed for conceptual physics to help students learn how force is related to acceleration, not necessarily motion.
Here is a tutorial on how to use the app:
