The poor man’s spy satellite

How to take digital photographs from a kite. (via Engadget, a fairly recent addition to my daily reads) This would clearly be the next most obvious step in the evolution of digital photography. I think with all gadgets as their intended uses become commonplace someone inevitably asks the question “Well, what can we attach this to?” Digital cameras and kites seem as good a combination as any. I’d really like to give this a try at some point. Unfortunately, my digital camera isn’t quite old enough yet that I’d be willing to risk it like that. Also, I have no kite. Probably need one of those.
