Cozmic Zoom: a “Powers of Ten” app

Some time ago I posted a very brief review of the classic Powers of Ten short film by Charles and Ray Eames. Now, the Cozmic Zoom app for Android and iOS (by Tokata) translates this idea to the mobile-app world.

Taking advantage of gesture-based interaction, and using a set of 70 images (some public-domain, and some constructed by the author), Cozmic Zoom appears to be an interesting educational resource, covering aspects of astronomy, biology, and physics. Here are some screenshots (or watch it run on Android or an iPad):
