This physical and digital kit lets you discover the world of molecules in an intuitive, hands-on way. Using a set of 50 atom models representing 16 different elements, you can assemble your own molecular models. The atoms stick together easily with magnets: metal tips on the ends of rubbery arms, which represent free electrons, snap onto magnetic bonding sites on the atom spheres, which represent empty spots for electrons in the atom's outermost electron shell.
Then, use the included app for iPad and iPhone to snap a picture of your model, and the app uses state-of-the-art image recognition technology to identify it. The app recognizes tens of thousands of molecules and presents detailed information about 120 of the most important ones, such as a molecule's usage, properties, hazards, formula, and structure.
