Textbooks have been around for several centuries. However technologies have changed the way we learn today. Chalks, boards, computers through the use of specialized software for teaching and learning have also contributed significantly in the teaching and learning process. In this research, augmented reality (AR) applications were developed to simulate selected engineering problems and tested with students. The physical interface of the AR application was tested in terms of visualization, interaction and learnability and is described in this paper. Preliminary results showed AR is a promising visualization technology that could enhance the learning process.
