Creating interactive Augmented Reality (AR) applications is still a rather technical matter; it requires programming skills that increase with the complexity of the application. This paper proposes a flexible and scalable node based visual editor, built on the entity system architecture; the creation a simple, yet interactive water cycle educational application is presented to demonstrate how the tool can be used. A usability test is conducted with six participants divided into two contrasting groups (developers and non-developers), a questionnaire is used to gather insight on the experiences from the users, the results that are presented, show that both groups found the tool to be appealing and useful.
