mySKY’s Guide to the Galaxy

Monday, 10 December 2007

This multi-media device is a personal guide to the sky, using GPS for the convenience of astronomy hobbyists. Point the gun-style “mySKY” to one of 30.000 celestial points of interest, and you will see and hear a location-based experience. The other way round you shall be able to search a dedicated object.

Astroarmy on the commercial via YouTube: “Introducing the Meade mySKY. Meade introduces a revolutionary way to explore our universe. The new Meade mySKY is an easy-to-use multi-media device that will guide you through the night sky better than if you had your own private astronomer standing next to you.”

Via OhGizmo! who got it via GEARlog, to OhGizmo! I came via gizmag.


Stourhead (Node) Explorer

Sunday, 2 December 2007

Two videos from YouTube on Node:

1. This one shows the nodeexplorer as the “Stourhead GPS Explorer”

2. Here is an example of a program for the nodeexplorer as “Stourhead GPS Explorer”. I like it, as it does not simply show the reality, but reconstructs the past.
