A 3D-printed model of the moon reveals more than meets the eye

In a way, augmented reality provides a window beyond our world. In the case of AstroReality Lunar Pro, a 3D-printed model lets viewers explore the surface and workings of the Earth’s moon. Although a 3D model of the moon is nothing near a novel idea, the fact that this moon was created to work with augmented reality is. The 1:28,969,000 scale model of the moon works with a smartphone to give you information on anything you ever wanted to know about the moon.

The renderings of the moon’s surface are based on data captured by NASA’s Lunar Orbiter team. The model was created with extreme precision, so it resembles the actual moon almost exactly in miniature. Each AstroReality Lunar Pro is also hand painted with a protective coating added. It is especially great for children because they not only learn interesting facts and trivia about the moon, but also can watch simulations of NASA missions to the moon.

The moon models are currently available in exchange for a crowdfunding contribution on Indiegogo.
