JigSpace is an iOS app that uses augmented reality (AR) to explore machines, inventions, space, how-to topics, and more. Simply launch the app, select the desired 3D model (called a Jig), and point the camera at a table or the floor.
JigSpace will load the object right there, giving students the opportunity to move around the object and inspect it more closely. Arrows on the side of the screen allow students to progress through the Jig, cycling through different animations and brief explanatory text. The animations often take the form of a 3D exploded diagram. Teachers can use the app and plan lessons around the various Jigs offered within the app.
