Nexus S Gets Sent to Space (the S is for Space?)

Our mobile phones, like our key rings, are some of our best-travelled devices. They go everywhere we do, be it in our pockets or in our bags.

While most of us keep our feet planted on the ground while we're moving about, it's nice to know that the Nexus S can travel with us should we decide to ascend about a hundred thousand feet into the atmosphere.

Those awesome Googlers have built a weather balloon apparatus to send the Nexus S into space to take videos as well as record sensor data from its GPS, gyroscope, accelerometer, and magnetometer.

Check out the videos below, as well as some pictures here and the blog post here.
