Meet the Sparrowscope: an awesome product that lets you use your smartphone or iPod Touch to take aerial photos from the ground. You get to wirelessly control it. The Sparrowscope secures your smartphone to a kite line with motorized pan and tilt action. It can automatically rotate and take pictures from different angles or you can control it wirelessly.
The Sparrowscope connects to your phone via the headphone jack. Its free companion app pairs with the device in the sky, so users can control how it performs. The rear facing camera of your device will also provide you with a live preview form the sky. A lot of fun can be had with something like this. The Sparrowscope is on Kickstarter.
