Astronaut Reality Helmets on CNBC
This morning, CNBC Squawk Box featured a live demo of the astronaut reality helmets we developed for NatGeo’s new show, One Strange Rock. The segment featured former U.S. astronaut and Intrepid Museum senior advisor Mike Massimino, one of the many astronauts that tested out the helmets at the show’s premiere last month. "Astro Mike" talks about the technology in the helmet, the TV show and his love of space.
The helmets, like the new show, provide an astronaut’s view of the earth through a first-of-its kind immersive experience. Watch CNBC anchor Mike Santoli take the ride for himself. Mike, the self-proclaimed “repairman in space” describes it as having an “IMAX theatre right on your head.”
