To prevent acidental firing with a switch-under-tension design you just need to include a loop of elastic material like bungee cord in the balloon tether. This will keep constant force on the switch and filter out "noise" on the line.
How effective is a parachute at that altitude? The air resistance is minimal so will it even fill up?
You can make it launch on balloon-pop with nothing more than a U shaped piece of plastic and a microswitch:
Excuse the poor drawing, I'm trying to get my fat hands to work with my new Galaxy Note.
He'll make Javier Bardem seem even *more* evil? not possible.
"The BOPP film, manufactured by Innovia (which owns the UK trademark on cellophane), can then be wrapped around any product but it looks best on a bottle."
...and the Kinect can do all sorts of stuff, but it's really best as a game accessory. Adafruit needs to put up a bounty for reverse engineering this with home 3d printers.
I see a lot of people moaning about the lack of HD and comparitively low specs. Not all of us have the money to spend on a PS3 not to mention the additional hardware required to really appreciate it. A 720 HD LCD and a 5.1 surround sound setup arent exactly cheap, and neither is the PS3 itself.
The Wii is an attractive choice for anyone looking for a console for casual use. It's relatively inexpensive, with innovative (and not to mention fun) controls. The PS3's HD graphics and 5.1 surround sound might be really awesome for so-called hardcore gamers. Many of us are buying a Wii simply because its good clean fun. An absolutely perfect excuse to get the mates round with a few beers and some pizza.
Mario Kart is still a firm favourite with my friends after a night out. The Xbox usually sitting forlornly powered down on the next shelf.
