Elements 4D by DAQRI
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Part educational story and part game, the Elements 4D app offers a new, fun way to experience augmented reality and learn about real-life chemistry.
Paired with either paper or wood blocks that are inscribed with the symbols of 36 elements from the periodic table, this app will instantly transform a simple, inanimate object into dynamic, dimensional, 4D representations of each element.
Designed by DAQRI, the Elements 4D app enables you to:
• Interact with 36 amazing, naturally-occurring elements and learn their names, what they look like, and their atomic weights
• Learn unique, fun facts about each element
• Combine two elements together and see how they react, including the catalyst, resulting compound and chemical equation
• Get inspired about chemistry!
About Elements 4D
Elements 4D was successfully funded on Kickstarter in July 2013. The DAQRI-designed interactive wooden blocks are now available for purchase at http://elements4d.daqri.com.
You can also use the app with papercraft blocks that you can print out for free and make at home. Just download the following images and follow the folding instructions to create your own papercraft blocks at http://elements4d.daqri.com/documents/elements-blocks-all.pdf.
To get started, aim the app viewfinder at either a paper or wood Elements 4D interactive block and watch it come to life. Next, introduce a second block into view, put them together, and see how they react!

Teacher loves this
Love this app! It's a brilliant idea and the research is well done. One problem - it doesn't work for all of the compounds for instance putting AlCl did nothing and there are several other examples. I would love for the update to contain more compounds regardless of the effects.
Students loved it!
Used this in a classroom with 8th graders. Once they got used to using the app they were off and running without much assistance from me. The only thing we've noticed is that when viewing the app the subscript numbers show as question marks instead of numbers on the cubes.
You should make it possible for highly reactive elements to explode when combined :)
