Wonders of Life

By Professor Brian Cox and Cohen

Take an awe-inspiring 3D tour across the Earth’s most disparate climes and creatures, guided by Professor Brian Cox, with the official Wonders of Life app, in conjunction with the BBC.

From the vast networks of subterranean freshwater caverns of the Yucatan peninsula to the unique and precious island of Madagascar, from the Robber Crabs of the Christmas Islands to the Paramecia of the caves in Kentucky, this app will help you uncover the secrets of life in the most unexpected locations and in the most stunning detail.

Explore the trinocular vision of the Mantis Shrimp, the tongue of the Flathead Catfish or the legs of the Mohave Desert Sand Scorpion in its natural habitat in scintillating 3D detail, delving down variously into the detail of bone structure, molecular composition and more. Along the way you’ll learn how everything in the Universe, from the smallest microbe to the largest cluster of galaxies, is constructed from the same fundamental building blocks and is subject to the same laws of nature.

Professor Cox underpins the experience with over 200 articles delving into intricacies of the natural world and the laws which bind it, alongside over 2 hours of footage from the series and 50+ mind-blowing 3D models, all optimised for the iPad’s retina display.

The app seamlessly complements the Wonders of the Universe app (chosen by Apple as one of the best apps of 2012), adding in a tranche of additional information to Brian’s compendium of information on our solar system.
