Quirky, an industrial design company based in New York City, is developing a product that enables consumers to take surprisingly good photos from space, utilizing a weather balloon with a mounted camera inside. The product is called the Kepler Space Kit, which is an upgrade of their previous product called the Kepler Kit. The company says of the upgrade:
"The base Kepler kit transforms with minimal waste: the kite turns into a parachute, the rods into landing legs, and the custom mount supports a capsule for high-flying travel. Add a weather balloon and a GPS transmitter, and your iPhone or Go Pro camera will be ready to blast off and return with footage of the great beyond."
