AR Periodic Table of Elements
Tokyo Electron Limited
AR App for AR Enhanced Periodic Table Presented by Tokyo Electron
Tokyo Electron’s Periodic Table of Elements (Japanese and English) with augmented reality (AR) features was published in the Asahi Shimbun newspaper on July 22, 2017, as well as on the company’s own website (http://www.tel.co.jp/genso/en/
). In October 2017, Tokyo Electron (TEL) released the English version of its periodic table. The latest update adds functions to support the English version of the periodic table, and includes English-language animations.
TEL’s AR app is a dedicated augmented reality application that makes learning fun. It reads each of the element cards data from AR cameras and supports the Japanese and English versions of the AR Enhanced Periodic Table. With narration included, the AR app enables a deeper level of understanding of the elements.
This app is provided for use with the 2017 edition of TEL's Periodic Table of Elements (Japanese and English). The 2017 edition includes nihonium (Nh), an element that was only officially named in November 2016.
The latest update added support for iPad.

2. Hold the camera over an element card on the poster ad or visit the TEL website to load up a video.
