Description

‘Jammed with information about the workings and history of a long list of inventions...bring[s] complex ideas alive in an interactive and modern way.’
– The New York Times

“...a marvellous, marvellous app.”
– The Guardian

Pick up and play with some of the most extraordinary objects in the history of science and technology. This app brings to life priceless objects from the Science Museum in London and tells their stories.

With Journeys of Invention you can study, rotate and even operate some of the most revolutionary scientific inventions of all time. Step inside the Apollo 10 Command Module, examine a flea with Robert Hooke’s 17th-century microscope, explore the Large Hadron Collider, or even encode a secret message with a World War II Enigma Machine and share it with your friends to decipher. The app features original and insightful history specially written by Science Museum curators with a rich collection of historic photographs, rarely seen contemporary artworks, archive film footage and video.

This spectacular collection of museum gems is presented in a spell-binding interactive network of inventions, making it effortless to journey back and forth through time. Learn about the darker side of science on the ‘Dangerous’ journey. Choose ‘Horizons’ for dramatic tales of exploration. For a different take on the history of science and technology, try ‘Atoms and Rays’ or ‘The Secret of Life’.

Created by experts from the Science Museum in partnership with RGB (the wizards behind acclaimed apps The Elements and Solar System), Journeys of Invention is a wonderful guide for anyone with an interest in science, technology and discovery.

Reviews:

“Writing as someone who has a visual impairment, I have always found myself removed from museum exhibits which are often behind glass and too small/detailed to appreciate from afar. As ever, RGB has used the glass to bring these items closer. Brilliant work!” User review

“...an app for families to share and spend quality time with.” iPad Insight

“Journeys of Invention is a great interactive learning tool that is beautifully designed” Mac Life

*************

The Science Museum was founded in 1857 as part of the South Kensington Museum, and gained independence in 1909. Today the Museum is world renowned for its historic collections, awe-inspiring galleries and inspirational exhibitions. Find out more at www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/

Simulations

Hi, so most of the simulations don’t work on my iPad gen 9, they get cut off and I can’t see half of the screen! Other then that the app is great, if you fix that tiny problem then it would be 5 stars

Amazing!!!

This game is entertaining and educational at the same time😎🏫 great idea a little expensive but still cool just I think you could either make it more interactive or you could add more inventions!!

This is actually a $10 app

Once downloaded, you will have about 12 items to view and then they ask you to upgrade for $10

The samples are cool though.
