back to article Classified LOHAN payload is four-eyed beast

As regular readers know, the Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) team likes a nice bit of imaging kit, and we can now reveal that the classified payload which flew atop our recent "Judy" test flight was in fact a prototype four-eyed beast capable of capturing hi-def panoramic video.

    I agree - mines monumentally temperamental.

      Bunch of arse, tbh. Grounded for the LOHAN flight, and we have new kit incoming. Watch this space...

      We were going to use mine for the LOHAN test flights last summer. It failed horribly before we launched - wouldn't even start up, even with known fully charged battery. It was weeks later when I got it to work again, following a guide on the internet about 20 times till eventually it booted for long enough to load updated firmware. Since then it's been fine, but I can't ever trust it again.

    Excellent pictures :)

      That's Anthony Stirk's pink gaffer tape. It's a regular feature on flights. Quite what he does with it in the privacy of his own home I know not.

    Little fluffy clouds

    How appropriate that your lovely cloud panoramas are juxtapositioned with an ad for ... cloud.

    spiffy camera

    with the image stitching done onboard and on the fly, that's pretty slick. If I could think of sufficient justification, I might have to stump for one of those. Perhaps internal mapping of my secret bunker complex for the brochure...

    Nice stills, but can it compensate for spinning?

    When are you going to mount one of those cameras on a propeller beanie and show Google what wearable computing can be?
