Samsung's "technological feat" literally crashes down from the sky
Well, unfortunately for Samsung, their latest idea to show how it pushes “the boundaries of innovation” went south. About a couple of weeks ago Samsung announced it’s “SpaceSelfie” initiative which was meant to demonstrate “the pioneering spirit of its brand” and set “a new standard for the potential of mobile technology”.
The plan to do that was by putting a Galaxy S10 5G alongside a regular camera and strap them to a massive high altitude balloon. Once the balloon is high in the sky, Samsung would show photos of users that submitted selfies to the company’s website and the camera would take a picture of the S10 5G displaying the selfie in “space”.
The contraption was launched successfully but its return to earth was far from smooth. The SpaceSelfie apparatus crashed on a farm in the middle of Michigan, Slashdot reported. The couple that owns the farm heard a loud noise around 8:45 in the morning. Outside, they discovered the wreckage right beside the fenced enclosure where their horses were about to be brought out just minutes later. A video was posted by the woman on Facebook clearly showing the “Space selfie” branding on the side of the unwelcome guest.
