Spacecrafts never seize to amaze the nerd engineers among us. And NASA's Spacecraft 3D App developed for iPhone and iPad will leave you with utter amazement after you see the high quality animation of the NASA spacecrafts maneuvering and manipulating their outside components. NASA's Spacecraft 3D is an augmented reality app and first of its kind on a Apple device. The iPhone or iPad's camera and a printed AR Target is used to overlay information on the device's main screen, so that users can explore the amazing engineering feats of their favorite NASA missions. Available immediately on the list are the Curiosity Rover that will touch down on Mars on Aug. 5 and the twin GRAIL spacecrafts, Ebb and Flow, currently orbiting the moon.

The next in line on this list will be the Sun-orbiting Cassini spacecraft, the Dawn spacecraft, which is deep in the heart of the asteroid belt, and the Voyagers, which are right now at the very edge of our solar system. How wonderful is that? All these computer-generated models will soon be made available on platforms other than Apple as well, so is assured by the team behind this project. You may download the app here.
