Balloon Mapping Kits ~ DIY Carto on Kickstarter!

Excellent to see MIT Media Lab project Grassroots Mapping dial things up on Kickstarter! Previous ML-related Kickstarter projects CineSkates and Twine have gone huge! Now you can get Balloon Mapping Kits to send...
"...a camera up on a balloon, snapping photos, and stitching them into a map. Over the past 18 months, we’ve build a global community of mappers who use balloons and kites to take aerial photos, and our browser application MapKnitter to stitch them together. We've put our experience into a comprehensive balloon mapping kit that only costs $85 (shipping included) and comes with illustrated instructions."
Follow the action at Grassroots Mapping plus map archive and support them via Kickstarter!
