Cameras "Up" in the Air
Exhibit Code: CSI-112
Zone: Innovation Center
Location: Center for Student Innovation (CSI/087) - Center for Student Innovation
Time: All Day
Collecting photographs from balloons dates back to the Civil War, when mobile darkrooms were brought out into the battlefield and glass image plates were developed on the spot. With the camera technology available today due to their use in cellular phones, we can now create a very small, balloon-based, multiple camera system that can produce very high resolution photos of the ground and view them, in real time, on devices like the Apple iPad. Visitors will be able to view images from a balloon flying around campus on their own mobile devices or at the exhibit booth.
