Final Year ProjectScience Alive !Learning Solar System With Augmented RealityImQhairulIzar b. Zulkifli1071120117
Proposal TitleScience Alive !BackgroundBook is the first source in this world to convey any learning method to user , but it was old and people nowadays seeking new invention to attract people learning in everything. Science is one of the things in the world we can not see it perfectly. Sometime we need telescope , microscope to learn about science.Problem IdentificationWe all know that to learn anything mostly come from the book , without book there is no other way to learn. Then comes the internet as another source or medium to convey any learning infromation to user. For the school student they still using old book form that they must read everything to get the information. In some way it does not effective 100% because people nowadays prefer video or animation than texts. With this Augmented Reality form it will take about 80% - 90% effectiveness in study and it also attract student to learn because it has animation instead old text form. Science subject in school can be categorized one of boring subject for most of the student especially in primary school because student can not visualize and everything is fact , student need something has connection with entertainment to learn science and have fun when learn it.Aim & Objective- To create new environment in study field- To persuade student especially primary school student to learn science well- To attract student in learning phases- To increase the effectiveness in student learning- To give student visualize certain things in science that they can not see or touch
Proposal ( Cont ) MotivationI was one of the primary school student , when come to science subject is make me hard to learn it because i can not see the actual things only seeing the picture in the book. With this application i think student will have more fun in learning science.“I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.” - Albert EinsteinIdeation or ConceptCreating an interactive augmented reality application using web cam and desktop computer. Most people own new technology such as computer, through this application the effectiveness in learning will increase and it also will attract more user to learn. My idea and concept is there’s a special books with no text inside only have few markers. When user open the book infront of the web cam there will appear a 3d animation object on the marker inside the screen monitor and a few information will include.

Research and Analysis I choose the Investigating Earth and Universe for the primary school science learning , here the syllabus Investigating The Earth and The UniverseThe theme aims to provide the understanding of the Earth, Moon, Sun and Solar System as a whole. The theme also provides understanding of the effects of the earth, moon and sun movements and how these movements can be beneficial to mankind.The contents of the theme are as follows:1. The Solar System.- The constituents of the Solar System.- The planets move around the Sun in the Solar System.- The relative size and distance of the Earth, Moon and Sun.- The placement of the Earth in the Solar System.2. Constellations- The examples of constellations.- The importance of constellations.3. The Movement of the Earth, the Moon and the Sun.- The occurance of day and night.- The phases of the moon.4. The Eclipse- Eclipse of the moon- Eclipse of the sun
Research and Analysis ( cont ) Overview About Augmented Reality Augmented reality (AR) is a field of computer science that involves combining the physical world and an interactive, three-dimensional virtual world. This article takes a look at augmented reality, its current uses, and its future potential. Then you'll dig in and see how to apply this exciting technology using Adobe Flash CS4 Professional, Adobe Flash Player 10, and a webcam FLARtoolkit FLARToolkit is the latest in a series of ports of ARToolkit, an augmented reality C++ library originally developed by Dr. Hirokazu Kato at the Human Interface Technology Lab at University of Washington. With the advent of ActionScript 3.0, developers like Mario Klingemann and others began experimenting with realtime image analysis techniques for Flash Player. Saqoosha picked up on this, and ported FLARToolkit from NYARToolkit, a Java/C#/Android port of ARToolkit.

Research and Analysis ( Cont ) Survey I’ve done a small survey to the target audience which is primary school student about science subject. Here is the result for the survey. Hardest chapter in primary school science. Preferred learning method
Research and Analysis ( Cont ) Here is the equipment for the make AR works. 1. Webcam 2. Output Projector ( monitor ) 3. FLAR marker
Idea Development Dinosaur Alive !For my idea , i been looking through useful technologies nowadays , there's and application called "dinosaurs alive" . when i look back into the application , i want to help those children learning especially science coz i cant be visualize by our naked eyes , here some of the reference that i've been done. Reference video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRVQ9aJE_z8&feature=player_embedded
Idea Development ( Cont ) Augmented Reality Books collaborate with soundi think i want to use this kind of application so that the description of the planets will be explain by voice so that user just watch and hear the application , but there’s a text also because maybe user cant understand certain scientific terms .here the reference Reference video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eV36Gs5-nxw&feature=player_embedded
Idea Development ( Cont ) A general view of mind map Detailed mind map
Idea Development ( Cont ) This is the early sketches for the story board About the Planets About Moon Phase About Eclipse Phenomenon
Education field is strongly recommended to use augmented reality to improvise the teaching method and the increase the effectiveness in student understanding.
Augmented reality nowadays create new environment of learning where , many users now love to learn with augmented reality especially kids.
Architecture: AR can be employed to simulate planned construction projects
Art: AR can be incorporated into artistic applications that allow artists to create art in real time over reality such as painting, drawing, modeling, etc
Entertainment and education: AR can be used in the fields of entertainment and education to create virtual objects in museums and exhibitions, theme park attractions (such as Cadbury World), and games (such as ARQuake and The Eye of Judgment).
People nowadays looking forward with augmented reality because it's fun and most of them like
to have this technology at their home.
Many company use augmented reality to promote their company such as they use augmented reality as a brochures , they replace static website with augmented reality and etc.
