The Elements is perhaps one of the first ebooks exclusively developed for the iPad, and gives us a peek into the future of publishing. The ebook, which is based on the hard cover edition of The Elements by Theodore Gray, is a visual representation of the periodic table.
Each element is shown as a crystal clear rotating image which can be examined from all sides, with a column of facts and figures about it. The reader simply has to tap any object on the screen to bring out further details about it including interesting videos showcasing its properties. The second page of each element has rotatable objects representing the element.
The ebook supports 3D viewing with special glasses, with a mere touch making the objects spin in 3D. The Elements is available at the Apple App Store.
