Android Satellites from Nasa – “PhoneSat”

Based on the HTC Nexus One and the Samsung Nexus S  smartphones, Nasa has rejigged things a bit and turned the basics of the smartphone into a mini satellite. How cool is that. Considering all the stuff in a smartphone, including sensors, , it’s not surprising. The open source nature  of Android is a plus to develop the project.
At only $3,500 for the satellite it makes sense. I would buy one…just because.
Expect a launch near the end of 2012

Nice one.

I anticipate more devices using smartphones for brains in the future [humans included, lol]
