ATLAS On A Smartphone

If you have an Android device (smartphone, tablets), then LHsee app from the Android Marketplace might be something you want to look at.

LHsee is an educational tool available for Android OS mobile smartphones and tablet PCs. It has been custom  designed to provide an accurate and interactive visual representation of complex high-energy physics events recorded by the ATLAS detector. Features include live streaming and reconstruction of collision data from the CERN Large Hadron Collider.

It's interesting that they only released this on the Android platform ONLY and not on iOS, considering that a lot of people that I know of who work at ATLAS use Apple devices.

You can get a more comprehensive description of this app and what it can do by downloading this paper, which you can get for free.
