  • It gives a unique augmented reality experience which pairs with a taxonomic research paper.
  • It presents six new species of Strumigenys ants, also recognised as tiny trap-jaw ants, from Fiji.
  • The scientists have used 3D x-ray scans to create digital models of the ants.
  • The application also allows users to view 3D models of ant specimens in augmented reality.
  • It also allows them to place ants in the real world using the App.
  • Users can even magnify the species as per their choice.
