Google Expeditions 

This is the best app for teachers and students who are new to AR and VR. Google Expeditions uses your phone as a viewfinder to show augmented reality around you. Fly over and explore virtual landscapes, environments and landmarks without leaving the classroom. Learn how to teach AR/VR with Google Expeditions. 

Merge Cube/Explorer 

Bring the water cycle, ocean ecosystems, archeological digs and more to the palm of your hand with Merge Cube. The Merge Cube is a dense foam cube with a patterned design. When viewed through your device’s camera with any of Merge’s apps, the Cube transforms into a digital hologram, displaying objects, environments and diagrams in virtual 3D space.
