tree explorer is a concept for an augmented reality app.

the idea here is that you could walk up to a tree and peel it open with touch gestures. then as each layer of wood structure is splayed open, you could use a two-finger zoom to break out a microscopic chunk of it. this chunk would be interactive, rotatable, and you could see various functions animate - like the movement of water and nutrients.
