Sega has been making their Homestar planetariums for a number of years, and has finally created one that might just be worthy of a place in my geek sanctuary, with the release of their new Darth Vader Homestar projector.
I’m jealous. Francesco over at Hobby Media [IT] is off roaming the aisles at the Tokyo International Toy Show while I’m sitting here in Chicago, working at an hour when I should be sitting on the couch watching bad TV shows.
This intriguing hardware/software combo from Japan’s Fairy Devices lets you turn a tablet PC into a veritable “window to the stars”.
As you hold your PC up and move it around, the highly-sensitive motion-sensor USB module sends position data to the StellarWindow’s planetarium software, adjusting the viewport to match the angle of your screen.
