ISTE 2013: Walk Among the Stars
It’s the rare school that can afford a planetarium or even a rudimentary astronomical observatory, but there can be one inside every school iPad. That’s because Vito Technology’s Star Walk can put more than 200,000 celestial objects and a wide variety of facts about them on the slate’s screen. In addition to integrating an image from the pad’s camera, Star Walk has an eye-friendly night mode for actual star gazing evenings out. It can even help align a telescope to find objects and see them close up. It costs $3.
