Journeys of Invention brings to life over 80 extraordinary objects from the Science Museum in London in 14 interactive stories written by the curators.
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 novel 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 Touch Press (the wizards behind acclaimed apps The Elements, Solar System, Barefoot World Atlas and Disney Animated), Journeys of Invention is a wonderful guide for anyone with an interest in science, technology and discovery.
