Built by Owen Cornec, it’s a Web-based interactive 3D map of Wikipedia that visualizes the website as a cosmic web of information, literally turning it into a marvelous galaxy of knowledge you can conveniently explore with your mouse.

To accomplish this, Wikiverse sources thousands of articles from Wikipedia and then generates a map where it showcases the countless connections and overlaps of information between each entry.
In Wikiverse, each article appears as a star within larger domains and clusters of knowledge. To access any entry on Wikipedia, simply click on a star and Wikiverse will pull up the information for you.
Just a heads-up: The app could be rather CPU-intensive, so don’t be surprised if it freezes or fails to boot on your mobile device – there’s a chance your smartphone simply doesn’t pack enough oomph to run it.
You can watch a demo video of Wikiverse here.
