CMS wishes to enable anyone to feel and interact with the gigantism of high energy experiments. For this purpose, we develop a light application downloadable on most smartphone that can render 3D and 360° immersive impression.

Thanks to existing developments of 3D representation of CMS (iSpy, CMS sketchup, 3D drawing of CMS cavern), we are already able to provide an application on specific headsets where the user will be immersed in the CMS cavern on the scaffolding and will see the whole CMS detector in a cutaway view and with the representation of real events. The application can also give access to any 3D/360° image or film that would be available in order to implement a complete virtual visit.

With such an application in his pocket, we hope any high energy physicist will enjoy showing the experiment to friends, colleagues, students…
