Description: COSM Worlds is a viewer that lets you zoom into any object down to the molecular level and explore the tiny alien worlds within. COSM Worlds offers both VR and non-VR experiences, for OSX and Windows. Real 3D structure data is used to visualize large molecules, DNA, and cells. We plan to add MRI, CT scans, additional cell types, and much more.

See molecules scan DNA to express genes, or carry sacs of molecular cargo through the cell. We’ll be adding more simulation features to pack the worlds with action. Worlds are annotated with descriptions so you can learn more about the processes happening around you or write your own tours and use COSM to teach others. Connect tiny worlds to build a multiscale simulation of the universe. As more worlds are built, they can be connected through zooming. Together we could build a model of the entire universe!

Review: C O S M is an educational app that is an interesting concept that is for sure. The idea is you can go into each sort of layer of things from skin to blood and then into the cells themselves. Obviously, the deeper you go the more amazing and fascinating it all looks and becomes. While there is limited content here I do still think there is enough to justify the price tag if you learn at least something from it. There is no game elements to speak of here, just something interesting to explore and learn from.
