AstroReality’s LUNAR model launched on Indiegogo in September 2017, and hit a massive $210,399 within weeks, smashing its funding target of $50,000 by a whopping 516%.

Hand painted and crafted using the most accurate and advanced 3D printing technology, the softball-sized LUNAR Pro is modeled to 0.006 millimeters per pixel precision as it features a high-resolution topography based on data captured by NASA’s Lunar Orbiter science team.

With its AR app, AstroReality, weaves together an unparalleled way to experience the Moon, in the hand, and through a smartphone.

The AstroReality Mini Solar System includes nine mini models using the same precise measurement of LUNAR. The se includes all the planets in the solar system as well as the Sun and the Moon.

The LUNAR range – LUNAR Pro, LUNAR Regular and pocket-sized LUNAR Mini are priced from $39, and the Solar System Mini Set steals the show at an RRP of $129.

AstroReality will also be demoing the LUNAR Notebook at CES. This small notebook isn’t like your regular notepad. As well as being able to take notes there are will be dedicated pages that will allow users to experience the Moon using the AR app. An informative and immersive notepad fun for any age.

Zerlot Ma, AstroReality’s founder, said: “Space exploration through the years has been intensely exciting for all ages, and yet out of reach for most.

“With LUNAR we have brought the magic and mystery of space right into the palm of the hand – the only thing customers need to bring is the power of their imagination. Use the companion AR app for a thrilling educational experience that is quite literally out of this world…”

Coming next will be AstroReality’s model, PLUTO, which will be intricately detailed 1:116,020,845 scale high definition 3D printed model. It will be compatible with AstroReality augmented reality (AR) app that brings the exquisitely detailed model to life, turning a mobile device into a wide-ranging and engaging interstellar experience for all ages.

A magical city-building app, built for little fingers

 

Sago Mini’s new app ‘Sago Mini Town’ launches April 13, turning preschoolers into pint-sized city planners. Inspired by classic city-building playmats, Town gives kids the building blocks to create the city of their dreams.  Four unique locations and dozens of animated story tiles – familiar landmarks like roads, houses, shops and nature – create endless creative combinations, and an intuitive drag and drop menu gives little ones the power to build (and rebuild) all on their own.

Expect visits from favourite Sago Mini characters – kids can move Jack, Jinja, Robin and Harvey around their towns to watch them transform! The characters may cruise by in a car, strut their stuff with a funny hat or explore the seas in a pirate ship. The more they play, the more hidden tiles they’ll uncover – like a volcano, rocket launcher or the ever-elusive rainbow treasure chest!

 

Other features:

 

  • Four unique locations spark storytelling

  • Drag and drop story tiles create endless combinations

  • Animated surprises are uncovered as kids play

  • Promotes explorative play and creative storytelling

  • No rules or time pressure — kids can explore at their own pace

  • No WiFi or internet needed to play – perfect for adventuring

  • Ideal for toddlers and preschoolers, ages 2-5

  • Whimsical artwork and custom sound design

  • No in-app purchases or third-party advertising

    News: Palo Alto Innovation Launches new Sandman Clock

    PALO ALTO INNOVATION LAUNCHES THE SANDMAN CLOCK

    The alarm clock re-booted to support modern consumers’ growing number of devices

    SANTA CLARA, California, Thursday, November 19, 2015 – Palo Alto Innovation, an elite group of

    designers, engineers, and businessmen who love gadgets, today announced the launch of The

    Sandman Clock.

    The Sandman Clock re-imagines the classic alarm clock for the twenty-first century. Its contemporary,

    neutral design combines intuitive controls with the largest auto-adjustable display of its type, integrated

    cable management, and four USB ports to keep multiple consumer devices charged and ready to go.

    Until The Sandman Clock, consumers could not purchase an alarm clock with more than two USB

    ports plus cable management for under $50. The Sandman Clock addresses consumers’ needs and is

    now available for pre-order priced at $29.

    “We are focused on developing unique products that make life easier for how consumers use their

    products today,” said Alex Tramiel, Founder of Palo Alto Innovation. “The Sandman Clock is an

    uncompromised design with a distinctive silhouette that supports the ever-increasing number of

    devices consumers rely on.”

    With the continued rise in smartphone, tablet, smartwatch, fitness tracker, gaming controller, and

    backup battery sales, the average consumer’s nightstand is overwhelmed by the weight and power

    requirements of all their devices. As a result, current charging setups are usually a chaotic mess of

    cables and devices can miss out on a full charge rendering them useless. The current solutions are

    either ineffective or expensive and the problem will worsen as consumers look to connect more

    devices with greater power needs. According to Cisco* there will be 2.5 devices including tablets and

    smartphones for every person on earth and five devices for every Internet user by 2017.
