Sleeping Under The Stars: Luna, A Smartphone Enabled Personal Planetarium Projector

June 19, 2014


This is Luna, a personal, app-enabled indoor planetarium that can project the real-time night sky as viewed from anywhere on earth. I wanna see what it looks like from Antarctica! "Meh, it's overrated." Don't you ruin this for me, penguin! The Luna is a real product coming to market from Quirky, the same company that's developing the SlideRider stair slide. I want one. Then we can play intergalactic Space Rangers from the comfort of my bedroom instead of having to go outside at night. GW to space base, requesting to dock, over. "GW -- THANK GOD. WE ARE UNDER ALIEN ATTACK, I REPEAT, WE ARE UNDER ALIEN ATTACK. REQUESTING IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE." *turning spaceship around* F*** that!

Was your stargazing excursion ruined by a cloudy sky? Is your favorite constellation drowned out by city lights? You need Luna in your life. This app-enabled, indoor planetarium connects to your mobile device to projects the night's sky on your walls and ceiling. No matter where you are, you can view your local sky in real time or travel to a galaxy far, far away (no spaceship required!). This educational toy also lets you to identify and zoom in on various stars, moons, and planets.

I really am going to get one. Then lay in my bed at night thinking about how small and insignificant I am in the grand scheme of the universe. "Aww, that's cute, GW. But you're insignificant even on a much smaller scale." Like just the Milky Way galaxy? "Like just your apartment." But there's only like 20 units in the building! "No, just YOUR apartment." Ouch, I'm taking a nap.

Thanks to E V I L A R E S, whose real name I know now. I feel like that makes us closer.

    I rarely comment, or look in the comment section, so if I don't respond to any it's 'cause I didn't see em : )

  • evilares

    Haha, Every time! Thanks for noticing!

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    Oh No! There's an alien ship coming to attack us!

    No, that's just the ceiling fan.

    A real product coming to the market as in they've done nothing at all except come up with an idea and then horribly render it.
