“Nano Simbox” is a application to discover molecular and atomic scale of matter. It’s design to be immersive, fully interactive and collaborative. As Dr. David Glowacki said, this application show the motion of each particles and allow you to “feel” hidden electrical interactions, or more precisely to explore many different configurations of atoms with your hands. It’s very efficient for education but also for researchers to find new components.
Having a sense of the invisible forces that cause charged particles to dance with each other is a critical to understanding chemistry and designing nano-architectures, according to Glowacki and his coauthors. It seems esoteric enough until you realize how revolutionary physical models are in the history of chemistry and biochemistry.
