Raspberry Eye In The Sky

I remember many years ago we have a NETMF Balloon.

Raspberry Pi has taken a page from the Apple marketing book and tries to claim everything as their ‘first’ or innovation and its one of the things that really ticks me off about them as its a value of commerce over technology, they would spit on their grandmother if it made them a buck.

Justin and myself have been kicked around an idea that takes this idea one step further, maybe one day we will make it happen.

@ Duke Nukem - something like this?? http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/05/23/lohan_launch/

I feel that this acronym might be a bad omen…


After reading the URL, I thought “Oh, no. What has Lindsey snorted up her nose now?” :smiley:

@ ianlee74 - hahah. the special projects bureau at the register held a competition to name the project and subsequent parts like the SPEARS control board… It follows on from PARIS the Paper Airplane in Space project which was a great success.
Lohan will go one step further and achieve low orbit hopefully.

@ Duke: I don’t see where he claimed to be the first ever to send a balloon up, why so much anger?
