iNanotube is an app for the iPhone and iPad that renders a carbon nanotube (an atomic scale wire) graphically. The app takes advantage of advanced 3d rendering hardware on these devices for a smooth, seamless graphical representation of the atomic structure of this advanced nanotechnology. The user can manipulate and even construct these tiny wires using the touch screen interface. The app allows incredible, direct manipulation of tiny structures much too small to be seen with even the most powerful microscopes. The iPhone and iPad platform allow the world of nanotechnology to come alive literally in the user's own hands. Explore this website to see the support and information about why the 3d structure is so fascinating and important for future practical applications.
