These guys mounted HD cameras to the international space station and is now streaming – free of charge the first full color HD video of earth from space. The whole world, all the time, in high definition - available to anyone with an Internet connection. They can spot objects (according to the company “as small as one metre”). Bottom line – great example of democratization of technology. A small team of individuals can now do what in any previous time only companies / governments can do. As the video resolution continue to raise exponentially, companies like URTHECAST could soon help you find an empty parking spot (if your car won’t drop you and find one itself by then…). Already today they can track animal migration, traffic…etc..
