Did you see it? Asteroid 2014 DX110 was set to pass by Earth today and come within 216,000 miles of our beautiful planet. The Slooh Space Camera was set up to live broadcast starting at 4pm eastern time. 2014 DX110 is one of the closest asteroids Earth has seen in recent months. Many asteroids fly past us everyday but none come within one lunar distance of us, so this is a rare and exciting event. Watch the replay of the live stream here.
You don’t see many radios powered by Google’s Android OS. The Asteroid by Parrot is one of the few to be powered by the Android OS and it also offers three USB ports that allow you to hook up your other devices, including a 3G card or GPS USB device.
You can play music from a variety of sources, like MP3 players or SD cards. Aside from that there’s also Parrot Maps, a service that offers turn-by-turn navigation and traffic and construction alerts. Bluetooth connectivity will give you voice dialing and hands-free calling, as well as voice-activated artist search.
