Your personal satellite
It´s a really tiny satellite. You can put BASIC code on it and run it in orbit. There is a magnetic field sensor, a light sensor and even magnetic coils for attitude control.
You can transmit and receive within the coordinated frequency band (around 437MHz).
A simulator will be available soon.
After a crowdfunding campaign which will hopefully be succesful, i will offer real hardware in form of a development kit, so you can test your code before putting it into orbit.
After having put the first 1U PocketQub satellite into orbit, it´s now time to make You part of the space community.
A deployer will release 50-100 of the personal Chipstar-Sats into low earth orbit from the ISS
