We have developed an augmented reality application that allows the abstract processes involved in food digestion and metabolism to be visualised, thereby providing interactive and tangible models of the processes involved. Additionally the augmented reality experience was blended with physical documentation that allowed the integration of key concepts and ideas alongside the modelled content. This is the first app that we have developed in this way to aid in our teaching, and it is hoped to be the beginnings of a new way of learning conceptual processes in many areas of the life sciences.
