Earth Primer: Control the Forces of Nature. Using Just Your Fingers.

Earth is a wonderful place to live with all its materialistic desires – and while it’s debatable how the exact conditions came together in order for life to form, Earth is also a place of natural wonder that’s powered by a scientific ecosystem.

Earth Primer is a new and interactive educational textbook for iPad by designer, Chaim Gingold, that aims to help you understand the fine grain workings of planet Earth, as it puts you in control of the key parts of the system that all living things – including the planet itself – rely on in order to survive.

The truly interactive book will teach you how Earth really works by getting you to essentially ‘play’ with the forces of nature. From making your own volcanoes, to shaping sand dunes with the force of wind, and the creation of glaciers, Earth Primer will see you take the role of an invisible force as you sculpt mountains, push around Earth’s volatile tectonic plates, and heat up the Earth’s inner core to form spewing magma.

Complete with 20 different tools to unlock, and a “richly” interactive interface full of geological simulations to explore, the textbook compromises of five chapters covering Earth’s Interior, Surface, Water Cycle, Biomes and Sandbox – a mode that allows you to essentially run wild with the tools that you have already unlocked, exploring as you go.

Earth Primer defies existing genres, combining aspects of science books, toys, simulations, and games. It is a new kind of interactive experience which joins the guided quality of a book with open ended simulation play.

Perfect for those perhaps interested in learning more about the science that lies behind the Earth’s inner, surface and atmospheric systems, Earth Primer is available for download on the App Store, today – for $9.99.
