Geeky Gadget # 9: MySky Star and planet Identifier

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend, because i know I did.

This next gadget I'm about to talk about is called MySky:

If you are just like me, and are clueless about the night sky, then  this is the gadget for you. The MySky star and planet identifier looks like a deadly ray gun out of sci-fi movies, but instead of shooting lasers, it will help youlearn about the night sky. All you have to do is point the gun ant a specific star, planet, nebula or galaxy, and it will provide you with all the information you need about the object from the database of over 30,000 celestial objects.

The Mysky identifier uses a 12 channel GPS receiver, magnetic north sensory and accelerometers, which will help you identify and learn about anything in the sky.The best part about this nifty device is that it will even take you on a guided audio and visual tour, which will highlight the best bits based on your current time and location.

The MySky is priced at $400, and it features a full-coulour LCD screen that illuminates sights to easily point at objects, and it can also be used along side a telescope


Thanks for your time guys...see you all tomorrow.

  10. Intersting novelty item but really expensive. It's one of those novelty items that doesn't seem like it'll make money back.
