Startup Daqri's Elements 4D is a toy that come to life with an augmented reality app.

Augmented reality startup Daqri is looking to make learning chemistry more engaging and easier for students with a set of interactive augmented reality blocks.

Elements 4D is a set of six wooden blocks with each block face engraved with periodic table symbols. The blocks work with Daqri’s augmented reality app. When placed under an iPhone or iPad screen, they come to life in 4D and show the physical properties of the elements on the screen. When placed next to each other the blocks show the chemical reactions that happen when those elements come together in real life.

Daqri has just launched a Kickstarter project for the blocks to get more input from the community to further improve the blocks and to start production of the product.
