Just Plain Cool


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?!
