We're pleased to announce our first iPhone app!
Explore the Solar System—on foot!
SpaceWalking is an augmented-reality iPhone app that creates a virtual model of the Solar System around you, reduced to a walkable scale.
Choose a scale and starting point and then start walking! The app places the Sun and planets around you in virtual space. Walk across the street to visit Venus, Head down the block to Jupiter, and stretch your legs to get a glimpse of Pluto. As you walk, the app tracks your location in both the real and the virtual world, so you can wander amongst the planets, visiting each one, and zooming in to inspect and learn about moons, asteroids, and comets. Adjust the distance scale to fit the solar system inside your neighborhood or across your city. Earn achievements and send reports of your journeys to Facebook and Twitter!
SpaceWalking is now available on the iTunes App Store for $1.99 (U.S.). It requires an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4. (iPad 3G version coming soon!)
We have more iPhone apps in the works, along with several great web-based learning games and interactives that will launch this fall, so stay tuned!
