iPhone Rocket Hits 1300ft

iPhone developer and model rocket enthusiast Michael Koppelman performed a hobby mash-up by launching an iPhone rocket.

He used the packaging the iPhone came in to develop a cradle that fit inside the rocket. The iPhone had its own parachute, just to be on the safe side.

Koppelman developed an iPhone app to monitor the iPhone’s GPS and accelerometers, logging them to a file and sending GPS data over the Web so that the unit could be easily located if it became lost.

The airborne iPhone didn’t break or go missing.
