A big bag of R&D! We've gone through a lot of pieces trying to get our process down. That's about 25 pounds of mistake baby!

Starting to make a new celestial sphere. So... many... bad... constellations...

I was out bicycling around Minneapolis and captured a wonderful shot of the 35W bridges over the Mississippi. I thought it would look cool on a sphere and I like how it turned out. - Matt

A New Earth
I've always been passionate about creating new worlds. So after lots of feedback and design we now have a new Earth globe featuring:
- Satellite imagery from NASA's 'Pale Blue Marble'.
- Glossy, semi-transparent seas.
- Political map printed on the inside.
- About 200 named features and countries.
There is opportunity for personalization such as 'For Alex: Graduation 2018', which really adds a level of uniqueness not usually seen on globes.
I've textured the globe pictured with elevation data. I does take a while to print so texture would come with additional cost.
Bottom line: They look great. I imagine they'd have to go for $129 for smooth globes and $159 for textured. Available soon!
