Don't just look at the night sky — learn about it with the augmented reality Universe2go Personal Planetarium Headset from Omegon. Using your smartphone and their free app for Android or iOS devices, the headset projects constellation lines, photos, video, text into your field of view and overlays them onto what you are looking at overhead. Accompanying music and audio commentary complete the personal planetarium experience. Your position and orientation come from the sensors native to your smartphone, and after a simple calibration process offers precise and detailed information on prominent celestial bodies such as constellations, planets, stars, galaxies, and nebulae. Multiple modes allow you to choose the type of information provided along with three hours of audio commentary. A simple foam insert can be customized for just about any compatible smartphone to hold it secure and protected. Whether you're an experienced astronomer, interested in learning about the night sky, or have a child interested in astronomy, the Universe2go Personal Planetarium Headset teaches in an interactive and exciting way.
