What’s in the sky above us? Stars, of course, but which ones? If you want to learn more about the night sky, the Universe2Go is the headset and app that will teach you all there is to know about what’s past our planet’s atmosphere.
Universe2Go works with your smartphone. Sort of like a Google Cardboard or any other virtual reality head attachment, you place your phone inside of the holder and use it as a sort of viewfinder. The app will give you information about what you’re seeing above you.
The app is “free” in the sense that once you buy the headset, you get a license for the app itself so no, you can’t just download the app and test it out beforehand. The app has information on all 88 constellations, close up pictures of planets, star clusters and other heavenly bodies as well as three hours worth of audio about the night sky. When you’re all done, there’s a quiz mode to test how much you’ve learned. The Universe2Go is $99.
