Seeing Nano apps and resources

SeeingNano, a consortium funded by the European Union (EU) has developed two mobile phone applications: the SeeingNano app and the NanoScopic Memory app, and group activities: the Memory, the Profiler and the Origami.

• SeeingNano App: The SeeingNano app uses augmented reality. To use it, simply download and print the SeeingNano Markers. Point your camera at the image and move your device forward; you can now dive to see the at the nanoscale on the surface of a car engine piston, in an LCD screen and observe self-organising peptides reparing a tooth.
