A postcard from Space

On Wednesday we launched a payload for the clever people at Touchnote. Touchnote is a clever app that turns your smart phone photographs into postcards. Touchnote built a clever app to take time lapse photographs from their Sony Xperia Z2 smart phone. We put it into a HAB balloon payload and launched it from Oxford’s South Park. The flight went well and the camera payload was recovered 3 hours later. In that time the phone had been pushing photos to the Touchnote server live (when in mobile phone range). Well done Touchnote!
