Hamlin can detect the invisible forces all around us, from temperature to sound to wifi signals. It collects this raw data and performs the necessary calculations to project this information in 3D space. Students merely have to turn on their smartphones and, using the Hamlin mobile app, view the scientific principles the instructor is explaining in real-time, augmented reality.
And because Hamlin is a visualization tool, not just a sensor box, it offers a variety of different ways to see physics data. Take sound, for instance. Teachers and students can quickly switch from viewing sound as longitudinal waves to transverse waves to frequency-time meshes—or both simultaneously!—making it easy to tie the different concepts together and improving student comprehension.
