Augmented reality app let you explore different spacecraft
NASA has announced a new application called Spacecraft 3D that is available on the iTunes App Store right now. The app uses augmented reality to let fans of space travel check out virtual models of three NASA spacecraft. The three spacecraft include the twin GRAIL crafts Ebb and Flow as well as the Curiosity rover.
Curiosity will land on the surface of Mars in early August. To use the app you have to print out an augmented reality target on normal paper from your printer. Once you print that augmented reality target, you aim the iPhone camera at the target and the spacecraft can be viewed. NASA says it will add additional spacecraft to the app a later date.
