Simulation Products and the Multi-Sensory Interactive Periodic Table
MetadataShow full item record
The Multi-Sensory Interactive Periodic Table (MSIPT) is described as a simulation product for the perceptualization of electron configurations, atomic radii, orbital structures, and chemical bonds of the elements comprising the periodic table. A simulation product is defined as an interactive output representation from a data-centric sonification model, and is used to illustrate the form and structure of various elements through sound synthesis. First, a brief overview of the frameworks and possibilities inherent within this approach is addressed, which is then followed by a discussion of MSIPT. It is concluded that a simulation product provides a robust and self-contained method for communicating multi-faceted structures through sound.
