Stofiel Aerospace at 2016 CES



stofiel_aerospace_bannerBrian Stofiel, CEO of Stofiel Aerospace talks about launch services for micro/nano satellites.

Traditional launch services are extremely expensive. The Stofiel Aerospace concept is to launch a 30 pound payload from a rocket from a balloon at 100,000 feet.

They are working with governments to come up with a low earth orbit space that will allow small payload, rapid deployment satellites.

The system they are planning will be able to launch within a couple of hours.

These are short-duration satellites that will only remain in orbit for about two weeks before de-orbiting.

Turn Your iPod Nano into a Watch with TikTok

TikTok was a product that was turned down by Apple, so they went to Kickstarter to raise funds. After 30 days, the end result was not only a great amount of enthusiasm, but also the funds to create the TikTok watch.

The TikTok watch is a case for your iPod Nano. Once you put the Nano into your watch enclosure, you can use this just like a watch. The casing – made of Aerospace grade Aluminum – Comes in several styles and colors. So you could easily change watch enclosures to go with your wardrobe.

Best part – It’s more than just a watch. Not only can you listen to music, but you can use the watch as a Pedometer, a fitness application, an FM radio and more.

Scott Wilson (@ScottWilsonID), founder of MINIMAL (based in Chicago, IL) was the creator of this enclosure. Their company works by enhancing products from companies like  Xbox, Nike, Dell, Microsoft, Apple and Coalesse.

These enclosures start at $79. Check out LunaTik.com for more information. Of course, get a Nano at the Apple Store.
