There's an unbelievable amount of wonder and mystery in the solar system — even when we think we've discovered something new, there's a vast amount left to know. Even if you're interested in learning more about what we definitively know about the universe, that alone can be overwhelming. But if you're fascinated in exploring, there are other ways to investigate the vastness of the universe besides looking through Google. This Solar System Mini Set is a beautiful set of miniature, interactive planets. (Plus Pluto.)
Each one of these 3cm models is precision-made using 3D printing technology — so not only do you get a beautiful, pint-sized replica of the real thing, the models are designed to work with augmented reality technology, so you can see the topography of each planet close up.
You can learn about each planet's features, explore the scenery in space and more through the app. You can explore the entire solar system from up close thanks to the intricate machinery — it's the perfect gift to give to anyone with a curious heart, whether you know someone who's got a passion for science, exploration or even want to impart those qualities and give the set away as a gift to a child.
Explore bravely: usually this Solar System Mini Set is $179, but you can get it now for $129.
