Just Plain Cool

From Wired.com:

Once upon a time, we navigated the oceans using the stars; today, many of us are hard-pressed to find the Big Dipper. Enter SkyScout, a handheld scope and celestial encyclopedia. Aim it at any heavenly body, and the GPS receiver and three-axis position sensor identify stars, planets, and constellations by voice or text. Now there's no excuse for confusing Orion's belt with Capricorn's horn. $399
Okay, can we say drool?!

  1. Well, I admit that it is pretty cool. But really. If you have a hard time finding constellations...That's just pathetic. I mean how could you confuse capricorn with orion's belt? Orion has two of the coolest stars in it. Besides it's right next to the brightest star in the sky. Which is? Come on someone should know. No googling.
