Abstract:
A new generation of laboratory tools and computer modeling applications provide researchers with greater insight into nano-scale domains. We are still restricted, however, by our human-scale senses and the mouse/keyboard computer input devices. Our team of scientists and engineers has designed a novel joystick for molecular modeling software applications that is now being used in university classrooms and will soon be released as a commercial product. MolySym develops novel computer interface products that enable the manipulation and simulation of molecular systems. Our first product, LuxMol, allows the user to assemble ? in an atom-by-atom fashion ? a physical molecular model that is wirelessly interfaced with real-time simulation software, giving investigators a new level of insight into chemical systems as well as increased user functionality of the underlying computational software system. Our next two products will enhance this interactive experience by incorporating real-time force feedback based on atomic interactions (LuxAble) and adding an interactive 3-dimensional chemical environment (LuxProt). The suite of MolySym products will allow nanoscale researchers to ?feel? the properties of systems and manipulate molecules with a degree of simplicity that is unparalleled by traditional input devices. This will trim valuable time off the development of molecular-scale systems and give researchers a much deeper understanding into their systems of interest.
