Although I am not a big fan of Xinci Liu, I have been astonished by the science fictional world he created a few years ago. Fortunately, “The Wandering Earth” is directed by Fan Guo, a talented storyteller and perfectly presented this sci-fi movie to the audience.
I couldn’t stop myself from watching the movie three times and being touched and surprised every time I came back. After that, I started to collect various movie derivatives – including the Space Mug of AstroReality. The shape of the mug is inspired by the different aircraft in reality and science fiction in imagination. What makes it the coolest is you can scan the bottom of the mug and look at the magnificent planet Earth from a satellite’s view.
Technology is a necessary add-on to make a cool sci-fi derivative. The scenery of 500 million square kilometers is concentrated to the bottom of the small mug, making is a romantic story for us to explore. Although the pre-sale was quickly sold out, it gave me a chance to know about my “treasure land” – AstroReality, who gives a unique story to every star.
The Universe within your fingertips and your stargazing dreams come true.
AstroReality is an award-winning brand that innovates by merging physical products with augmented reality. Creating immersive, tactile methods to explore science, space, and life, AstroReality brings space experiences to life in the palm of your hand.
Along with the development of Augmented Reality technology, AstroReality created possibilities for the practice of AR in our daily life, allowing users to immerse themselves into space. We don’t have to squeeze in the crowd of the museums or browsing Wikipedia to search for information. Now with the AstroReality Augmented Reality app, you can learn about space closely. The LUNAR Pro model is collected by NASA LPI, and the EARTH model is the nominee of CES 2019 Awards of Innovation.
The AstroReality Solar System Mini Set is a beautifully designed planetary model kit. It brings fun as home decor and is fascinating as a learning tool. The LUNAR AR Notebook is also a design combing practical feature and aesthetics. It would definitely amaze the fans who love notebooks and those space lovers.
The package of the Solar System Mini Set is in a very simple style – a black box embossed with AstroReality logo. Open the box, and unveil the small boxes of the nine planets, which are embossed with the consistent style as the outer package. The simple and powerful style of the package indicated the mysterious history of the most important celestial body in the solar system.
Each small box is equipped with a manual, a display base, two fixed-position protection sponges and 3D printed planet model.
Each planet has a diameter of 30 mm, designing according to the satellite image data published by NASA. The surface texture of the planet is perfectly restored by high-resolution 3D printing technology. You can perceive the magical changes in the terrain by moving your finger.
The LUNAR AR Notebook is in a compact design with a size of 120x170mm and a very light-weight.t is ideal for everyday use as a journal book. The surface is embossed with the craters, simulating the surface features of the Moon.
The inner page design is also ingenious. The AR page is painted with the moon goddess Diana in Roman mythology. The order side is the tutorial to pair your device with the notebook and the photo of the moon landing astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
The notebook is using 80g acid-free papers, containing blank pages for sketching and painting, and cross-grain design for planning and writing. The last page is the introduction to the moon. It also has an intimate design of bookmark and a storage pocket at the back.
The magic of AstroReality’s space-themed product is not only limited in the decoration but the key to exploring the infinite universe. With the app – AstroReality, you will open up your mind with Augmented Reality.
It is very easy to get access to the app, where you can find its download QR code in the introduction page and the user manual.
Download and open the app, and you will see the guidance of pairing the product: click “Add a product” and scan the QR code in the product. Notice that each planet model and each AR notebook can only be paired with one device at one time. You need to deactivate the product when you want to change to another device. See the YouTube video here about “How to deactivate the product”.
Take JUPITER – the victim in The Wandering Earth, as an example. Scan the QR code to pair the device, and you can switch from the planet-centric view or look across the entire solar system. The Augmented Reality technology perfectly simulated the splendid landscape of our solar system, giving us an immersive experience of being in the universe. You can explore the inner structure of the planet and fully understand the Earth that we live in. Or you can switch to Solar System to observe the real-time position of the planet in the entire solar system and its rotation and revolution around the run.
Same way of pairing EARTH.
Same instructions for using the LUNAR AR Notebook. It is such a romantic experience that the Moon Goddess is the key to activate its AR experience. Open the app, click on the tab of LUNAR AR Notebook you just added, and then scan the picture of Diana – a virtual moon with a tremendous amount of information will pop up in front of you. Take a deep look at the Moon surface, and find yourself in Copernicus and Tycho in a 3D terrain view.
It is also very easy to deactivate.
In general, it was a great experience using this product. As posted in the feed, I spent a whole afternoon playing with it at home. The reason why this product is so interesting while using is that you can fully understand the concentrated thoughtfulness of the design in the process of experience.
In terms of the beauty of the look, since each planet is scaled down to 30mm, the 3D printing technology has maximized the restoration of the planet’s surface. Even the hardcover of the notebook, which is usually easy to be forgotten about, is crafted with the 3D surface of the moon.
Content-wise, it is already a very innovative idea using AR technology to condense the information for people to explore the universe. The amount of information provided by the app is much broader than the appearance of the product itself. A very important point is that I noticed that the app was just updated a week ago in the app store, meaning that the amount of the content and the operability of the product will continue to rise through the power of technology. In this way, it is much more advanced than a single model as well as always ensures the freshness of the innovation. The only minor problem is that occasionally the app would stuck (maybe because of the screen record). But I believe that this problem will be fixed soon.
A lot more interesting details are waiting to be discovered in person.
At last, thanks to Dealmoon and AstroReality for giving me the opportunity to experience this Solar System Mini Set and LUNAR AR Notebook. I am very excited to review this technology product which is condensed with a beautiful look and inspiring content. Thanks for reading.
