I grew up in the countryside but now live in the city and often miss perfectly clear starry nights. Starsailor allows you to recreate these, whatever the weather or light pollution.
This ambitious idea immediately captured my imagination – a standalone projector that could ‘virtually’ see through the clouds above your house and display the stars in perfect detail, straight onto your bedroom ceiling. The projector could also be connected to other devices for watching films, displaying photos or even surfing the internet.
Working with a diverse team of electrical and software engineers from all around the world I built on the initial vision of the product and developed the mechanical aspects into the first working prototype. This was then used to drive a wildly successful Crowdfunding campaign that raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding.
