LG’s G2 – not lost in space

LG G2 filming the stratosphere

We here at TechStyles like it when companies lash a gadget to a balloon and send it spaceward or thereabouts. Last year it was companies sending an iPad into the stratosphere to test their ruggedised covers.

Now LG has placed one of its upcoming G2 smartphones into a box, strapped on a weather balloon, and sent it skywards. What LG wants to show off here is the capabilites of the G2’s 13 megapixel camera and image stabilisation.

So click the video above to see the images that the project captured. The LG G2 is set to be launched in Australia in November*.
