Cell Phone Balloon Flight II
We love the idea of launching a video camera on a helium balloon and letting it get carried wherever the wind takes it. However, we didn't want the hassle of having to recover the camera. We solved this problem by launching a cell phone that's set up to stream live video over the cell phone network. It's a pretty low quality video, but at least we don't have to recover the camera. This was our second launch using this method. The balloon made it all the way up to Jones beach before loosing signal over the Atlantic.
