Project Overview

Sonification of the Table

A mobile/web application currently being developed for The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that allows users to view, pinch + zoom and rotate a 3D Mayan periodic table (modeled with Blender and integrated with three.js) linking each element to a display which allows users to listen to elements via sonification (developed by Professor Asegun Henry, Ph.D.) and interact with the associated 3D orbitals/placement of electrons/protons along with displaying the list of compounds that element is present in.

This application is being developed for class rooms, educational settings, and anyone who is interested in hearing what the elements of the periodic table sound like. The purpose of this app is to provide students and users an engaging visual representation of atomic theory and quantum mechanics while providing these frequencies to the world for everyone to use. [In progress]

Research

We knew the concept was cool, but we wanted to make sure
