The Tech Blog Writer Podcast - Inspired Tech Startup Stories & Interviews With Tech Leaders, CEOs, Entrepreneurs and Innovators On This Daily Tech Podcast

CES visitors can swing by the AstroReality CES 2018 booth to get hands-on with LUNAR and the entire solar system. The Augmented Reality app will also allow users to follow in the footsteps of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, and experience one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind by virtually landing on the moon.

AstroReality’s LUNAR model launched on Indiegogo in September 2017, and hit a massive $210,399 within weeks, smashing its funding target of $50,000 by a whopping 516%.

Hand-painted and crafted using the most accurate and advanced 3D printing technology, the softball-sized LUNAR Pro is modeled to 0.006 millimeters per pixel precision as it features a high-resolution topography based on data captured by NASA’s Lunar Orbiter science team.

With its AR app, AstroReality, weaves together an unparalleled way to experience the moon, in the hand, and through a smartphone. The AstroReality Mini Solar System includes nine mini models using the same precise measurement of LUNAR.

I invited Joanne Dai Co-Founder of AstroReality onto the show to find out more about their unique product and their tech startup story that has gone from a successful crowdfunding campaign to the show floor of CES 2018.
