[FONT=&amp]Inside the World of Dinosaurs is a new iPad app narrated by none other than British actor and avowed Apple fan Stephen Fry. The app, from Australian developer M5859 Studios, is a comprehensive and fully interactive digital dinosaur encyclopedia featuring the A to Z of dinosaurs, from Archeopteryx to Zuniceratops, with a library of 60 fully animated and interactive dinosaurs. Each dinosaur or object can be spun around in 3D motion, enabling you to study the detail, such as skin texture and colour, from all angles. The app also features breathtaking fight sequences between the big beasts, which can be viewed from any angle, as dinosaurs come alive with real sound and animation. Some dinosaurs can also be scrubbed backwards and forwards, so that their walk cycle can be analysed in detail. [/FONT]

[FONT=&amp]The app was created by a team comprising over 30 specialists in their respective fields, and took 12 months of intense collaboration to bring to life. Each page is packed with information that has been meticulously researched by numerous expert paleontologists, and every dinosaur has been recreated by world-class animators and modelers. Here’s a list of some of the featured highlights:[/FONT]

  • 310 fully interactive 3D models in total
  • 60 expertly modeled, photo-realistic dinosaurs
  • 40 fully interactive 3D recreations of dinosaurs in mid-fight
