This study delineated the development of an augmented reality (AR+Core) mobile application to enhance computer hardware education. By offering 3D visualizations of computer internals, the application enables students to immerse in hardware-related learning without the need of actual devices. This virtual approach ensures accessibility from anywhere, making tangible components unnecessary. The Multimedia Development Life Cycle (MDLC) informed the design process, while the Hedonic Motivation System Adoption Model (HMSAM) offered insights into technology adoption. Feedback from 7th-grade participants was overwhelmingly positive, with them acknowledging the app’s utility, engagement value, and user-friendliness. Notably, the app scored 85 of 100 for its perceived ease of use, underlining its efficacy for the target age group. These results underscore the importance of intuitive and engaging AR educational tools in enhancing learning experiences.


Keywords –Mobile application, AR, HMSAM computer hardware, MDLC.
