Many things have been said about the Large Hadron Collider that are untrue. The chances of it opening a black hole and swallowing the solar system are close to zero, no matter how many times it occurs in a movie or television show. That said, the Collider still isn’t something you can just go walk around in while on vacation, and since you will likely never actually get to see the Large Hadron Collider up close, wouldn’t you like to experience what it’s like to be a particle flying inside it? Combining the new Collider app with Leap Motion and the Oculus Rift, you now can.

Collider is an app that puts you in place of a particle as it travels near the speed of light within the supercollider. You’ll be able to use your hands to manipulate your surroundings with music and visuals that simulate what it’s like to bend space and time. You can download the app at the Leap Motion app store here.
