Three Dimensional Molecule Viewer

The Three-Dimensional Molecule Viewer helps students understand the true structure of some common molecules by displaying anaglyphic wire frame representations of them. Molecules are displayed in a standard 2-dimensional view but when you select the 3-dimensional view they seemingly pop out of the screen. YOU select whether or not they are displayed in 3D, and you control just 'how' 3D they are, from apparently floating in space to just barely extending out of the screen to appearing to be behind the iPhone! YOU use a slider bar to control the view you get, or you can toggle the SPIN button to make them endlessly spin, floating in space. This is an entertaining novely app, but also a very instructional and educational one for anyone learning or just interested in chemistry.
Molecule models available for viewing are:
Since anaglyph glasses come with different pairs of colors, you can select different color combinations for 3D display.
Red & Cyan
Red & Blue
Red & Green
Green & Magenta
I thoroughly enjoy this app. If more molecules were added, this could be a lifesaver for those taking organic chemistry, especially those that are unable, or unwilling to invest in a molecular model set. I am looking forward to future updates.
Makes chemistry fun!
I already had a pair of red/cyan glasses, and this app is fantastic for viewing the true structure of molecules! If you love or hate chemistry you'll love this app.
With a pair of red / blue (or other color combinations) glasses, you can view and rotate striking 3D representations of molecules.
A great learning and visualization tool.
