8 inspiring (and free!) scientific wallpapers to smarten up any device

Add a little scientific wonder to your smartphone, tablet, or computer with these thought-provoking wallpapers.

Different devices with Einstein and equation background

We have become glued to our screens, tapping and clicking our way through a virtual world of work, communication, commerce, and play.

Different devices with Einstein and equation backgroundA universe of information is at our fingertips — sometimes at the expense of experiencing the real deal. If you’re reading these words on a screen, our first piece of advice is to step outside and smell the figurative or literal roses.

But since very few of us can spend all day rose-sniffing, our second piece of advice is to create a more inspiring onscreen experience for yourself with our new science-themed wallpapers.

These wallpapers convey concepts of cosmology, quantum mechanics, astrophysics, and geometric art inspired by the architecture of Perimeter Institute.

Check out the wallpapers below, and fill out the form at the bottom of this page to receive them all.

We’d love to see these wallpapers in action! Take a screenshot and share it with us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram! Not sure how to change your wallpaper? This guide has you covered.
