@The NYC Toy fair 2008 one of my favorite companies was attending, Blue Storm productions – makers of “Slooh” – it’s not a product exactly, it’s time you can rent on high powered telescopes. You buy a card with a number of minutes, use your computer and remotely control observatory sites in Europe, South America (and soon Australia).
