Experience science at your fingertips
On the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Technical University of Munich, this App offers science at your fingertips. Join us for an interactive tour round the 14 faculties of the TUM. A virtual wind tunnel, simulations of fish swarms or a code-breaker puzzle are just a few of the 28 entertaining and informative animations, simulations and games in which you become the researcher. The App TUM interactive offers unique insights and a wealth of interesting information and explanations.
Alternatively, you can try out the web version of TUM interactive .
The people behind the App
The App TUM interactive has been developed by Jürgen Richter Gebert with the support of Aaron Montag, both from the Chair for Geometry and Visualistation.
Jürgen Richter-Gebert is an expert on computer-assisted mathematics and has for many years been actively engaged in establishing the foundations of interactive visualisation. He is the author of the visualisation software Cinderella (awarded the European Academic Software Award, the Deutschen Bildungssoftwarepreis amongst others). The modern spin-off software "CindyJS" is the basis for the visualisations in the TUM interactive App. Under the label science-to-touch, he has been developing iOS Apps since 2012, which aim to convey scientific themes to the user in a clear and lively manner.
Aaron Montag is doing his PhD studies at the Chair for Geometry and Visualisation. He is an expert on visualisation-based on graphic cards, and has developed the Cinderella Plugin CindyGL. This software is used for those visualisations in the App, which make heavy demands on the graphic card, such as the architecture models, the 3D-CT picture and the predator-prey-simulation. Aaron Montag also created the web and android versions of TUM interactive.
