Cosmic Eye allows to user to zoom in and out of a preset image, by enormous zoom factors, reaching down the smallest known sub-atomic particles and up to the entire observable universe.

Where possible, the app displays real photographs obtained with modern objectives, telescopes, and microscopes. Other views are phenomenal renderings of state-of-the-art computer models.

This app draws inspiration from a progression of increasingly accurate graphical representations of the scales of our Universe, including the classical movie “Powers of Ten” (1977), directed by Charles and Ray Eames.

Endlessly Fascinating

I still have my flip book of stills from the video POWERS OF TEN as well as the VHS tape. This takes the concept to the next level. Now with this app we have the 3D experience to enjoy!

It’s a great gift for everyone from children in school, to deeply religious adults of all ages. It gives you a concept of scale from large to small. Each person can interpret the story their own way. You can be a part of a greater whole, or a special part made especially for this time and place. No matter how many times you look at it you’ll learn something new.

Interactive micro and macroverse browsing

The reviews of this have been rather odd. It's a simple but elegant way to browse scales with some useful annotations.

The Demo mode is the video basis for a recently "viral" video -- usually zillions of views. Worth it just to use the Demo mode (no musical soundtrack though).

I bought it for $1. It's supposed to have ads that are removed for $1 but I haven't run into them so far.

Bought it so I can force the kids to watch it and get unwanted education. Also good way to say thanks to dev for a quixotic effort that has languished for years.

Nice app

It's cool to see how small you are to the universe!
