We’re not sure why LG chose to dub its marketing stunt experiment a “world first”, but we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt on this one.
LG took a shiny new G2 smartphone equipped with a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization, tied it to a weather balloon and sent it to the upper edge of the atmosphere. Of course, the journey to the heavens was documented with the device’s own camera, and we have to say, the G2 recorded some beautiful imagery.
The G2 had to battle extreme conditions during its vertical adventure – temperatures as low as -50 centigrade, as well as powerful high altitude currents. With that in mind, the end results are pretty impressive, don’t you think?
