We've created the Lab to discuss new Features, give you Insights into our Development and to share new Ideas and Inspiration.
Current Project

Solar Engine

Estimated release: May 2018

Solar Engine is our own very unique way of visualizing Cosmos - the catch is to be able to display small objects (like satellites) together with enormous objects (like stars) that can have vast distances between them.

Completed Solar Engine will enable us to add ISS, Milky Way Galaxy and lots of diffrent celestial objects - check out the screenshots below! :) It will also be used to visualize fluent travelling between these locations - which will be quite a spectacle!
