Japan's Cute Space Camera Drone
on 18 July 2017
Japan's remote-controlled Internal Ball Camera (aka Int-Ball) is a camera drone that resides on the International Space Station—floating around taking footage that can be read in real time. Created completely with 3D printing, 2.2l-pound Int-Ball uses drone technology and has plenty of smarts, but is also extremely cute. The black and white ball has big glowing blue eyes, and (as The Verge accurately puts it) "looks like something straight from Pixar." See more at The Verge.
