Universal Zoom is a unique educational app designed to let you explore and experience the notions of SIZE and SCALE.
Universal Zoom presents a sequence of objects TO SCALE from the subatomic particles to the observable Universe itself.
Universal Zoom is featuring real high-resolution photos and intuitive controls that allows you to have fun exploring the relative sizes of atoms, cells, insects, animals, trees, mountains, planets, stars and much more.
Universal Zoom built with the unique dynamic layout that provides you an intuitive sense for the size of every object by showing it in the presence of other objects.

Universal Zoom is for everybody
Our aim is to ignite the curiosity of as many people as possible, no matter their previous background:
- Kids 4+ will be excited scrolling the high-resolution objects that they already know, like animals, insects, trees and buildings. They will have the chance to discover the unknown. Comparing objects “face-to-face” is also fun.
- Kids 7+ will enjoy a much wider spectrum of objects to explore, like planets, stars, and deep space. They will better understand any unfamiliar units of length by visually comparing them. Also, they will understand big numbers without effort.
- Students 12+ will be fascinated by hundreds of interesting scientific facts about the objects.
- All the curious among us will have tons of fun.
- People with engineering and scientific backgrounds will be able to enjoy all the numbers in one place.
