Have you ever wondered what an atom actually looks like up close? Elements is a periodic table app that visualizes atoms and their electron orbitals. From the simple elegance of hydrogen to the beautiful complexity of tungsten, every element is unique and visually exciting.
Pocket Universe is a digital design studio focused on developing products for virtual reality and mobile. We are a multi-disciplinary team with a background in game development, film, traditional art, engineering, design, and photography.
We strive to create experiences that dwell in the intersection of art, science, engineering, and design. In particular, we believe that virtual reality is the perfect conduit to bring concepts that are hard to visualize on paper to life in novel, cinematic ways that invite curiosity and exploration. We’re excited to explore novel user interactions in this burgeoning field.
Around 60% of the processing power of the brain is dedicated to visual processing. By expressing concepts visually and creating realistic visualizations of complex ideas, such as electron orbitals, we encourage people to explore and intuit patterns and relationships between objects, rather than peform hand-holding and give explicit instructions.
In the pocket universe, anything is possible.
We balance design with functionality and work from the initial design phase through the development phase to bring ideas and exhibits to life via tablets, phones, and virtual reality. Every product is custom-built for each exhibit, and we are particularly interested in novel interaction ideas. We are forward-thinking and constantly ruminating on the possibilities for immersive experiences with emerging technologies such as virtual reality.
We apply design-orienting thinking to consult, create, and deliver interactive experiences to bring classroom ideas to life. We have a lot of ideas on how to realize concepts that are hard to visualize on paper. Imagine being able to teach chemistry by visualizing electron SPDF orbitals, express mathematical symmetry by viewing and rotating platonic solids, or taking a picture of clouds in the sky to quickly identify what type it is. Every student in the classroom is able to use a phone or tablet to augment the current lecture.
Those are our ideas, what about yours?
