Description: Have you ever wondered what the whole Universe looks like? With the myriad Galaxies, each containing billions of Stars, including our Solar System? Have you seen a Human Brain and its Neurons? DNA? What about the Electrons surrounding the tiny Atomic Nucleus? And what lies at even smaller scales?

Review: While I don’t think ‘Orders of Magnitude’ really benefits from being a VR app it doesn’t make it any less interesting. This is all about its namesake, it really is a perspective of Magnitude and while there isn’t any educational material as such it is educating. There are times the app looks amazing and other times is a little too empty and boring, but in short, it is a slightly interactive experience in which you can move forward or backwards in size and time Magnitude. The thing is if you just let this app flow you will only really get 20 minutes of experience out of it, but used in the right setting (ie: a classroom) I could see you getting your money’s worth from it. I for one loved it and enjoy all things space-related, but there isn’t a lot to do here for the money, so do be warned.
