Back the Kickstarter and you can get your own ISS-Above!
ISS-Above has been successfully implemented at numerous locations throughout the world (Thank You Beta Testers) now is the time to move this to the next level.
My plan and wish has always been to use the ISS-Above as a means to spread greater awareness and appreciation for space/science/astronomy throughout the world. Kickstarter offers a means to do that by providing an opportunity for you to back great project and to get one of these devices for yourself.
Please check out the Kickstarter
ISS-Above is spreading around the world
Although ISS-Above is still in Beta development we already have units in the USA / UK / The Netherlands / South Africa and Australia with further sites in development.
This map will give you some idea of where all the ISS-Above devices are currently located around the world.
Thank you to all the Beta testers who have helped so far.
ISS-Above: video showing different display devices
This video shows how the ISS-Above lights up when the International Space Station is nearby using a variety of different attached display modules .
The video features the following display products
Ledborg from Pi_Borg
ADAfruit’s LCD display
Also a custom (one of a kind) modified ISS-Light
The video also features 3D animation of the ISS created using Solar Walk – an iPad app from Vito Technologies (if you have an iPad/iPhone… you MUST get this).
