Cosmic Eye - The whole Universe on your iPhone, iPad and iPod
June 6, 2012 in Entertainment
[prMac.com] Perth, Australia - DanApps today is pleased to announce the release of Cosmic Eye (former Magic World), its new educational entertainment app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Cosmic Eye for iPhone/iPad/iPod features royal quality images of all known scales in nature. With a single touch you zoom into the smallest elementary particles and out to the largest scales of our Universe. This App is a modern continuation and interactive extension of a progression of increasingly accurate graphical representations of the scales of our Universe.
Notable precursors are:
* 1957: book "Cosmic View" written by Kees Boeke
* 1968: film "Cosmic Zoom" directed by Eva Szasz
* 1977: film "Powers of Ten" directed by Charles and Ray Eames
* 1982/94: book "Powers of Ten: A Book About the Relative Size of Things in the Universe and the Effect of Adding another Zero" by Philip and Phylis Morrison
* 1996: IMAX film "Cosmic Voyage" directed by Bayley Silleck
The App relies on cutting-edge scientific know-how. Where possible real photographs obtained with modern objectives, telescopes, and microscopes have been used. The other images, for example those of the largest scales of the Universe and of individual atoms, are state-of-the-art computer models. These simulations are consistent with all available empirical data gathered by recognized scientists in cosmology, astrophysics, geology, biology, genetics, chemistry, and particle physics. Get addicted to these enthralling views of our world.
