I dont care if its impossible.I want to do it.
I saw an image like this in my Brasilian Website news :
I wanted to get an image/Video Stream like that
Or if im being too ambitious, maybe this :
So i started researching but my knowledge on engineering is poor.
I dont even know where to start.
I guess for communication i would need some kind of internet ? RF signal maybe? Arduino and java can do that.
I would also need a receiver.
Also, i would need a baloon ?
Im unsure if its allowed to throw baloons like thatin the air without asking permission,then again is there any cable that i could attach into it to pull it back? I dont know because the winds up there are preety strong, plus how much cable i would need? like 3 KM of cables?
Ok so if i go with that, i would need a gas baloon that cant put stuff on fire. So helium?
Im also worried, what if the baloon escapes and falls... Could it hurt someone? I know the chances are small but it could happen. Couldnt it?
I Just found that:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/5005022/Teens-capture-images-of-space-with-56-camera-and-balloon.html
Thats extreme. Would be fun to do it but i just want to check the sky with my arduino .
Also, theres the problem of magnetism? I mean.. will stratosphere mess up the signals?
Ok So to sum up my worries :
a) How Far should i go in Height to have a good view?
b) Should i use some kind of rope?
c) If the baloon escapes from the Rope or if i dont use the rope, could it hurt someone?
d) Is there any law that forbids me to make those tests? i could idk, put a sensor to check for certain gases quantity ( that would be cool )
e) In case i use a "rope" i will have to check if it can take the strenght of the winds...
f) What kind of shield could i use in my arduino?
So i just want to put something up there. What will it do, if its just photos or sensors, its not decided, but i want to do it
What you guys think of it?
PS : Replies like :
YOU CANT DO IT, GO BACK TO RPG-MAKER will be ignored and will be considered stupid.
Since someone said that to me when i started in this forum and my game is 85% finished with libgdx.
Opinions and suggestions and criticals are welcome..
Im trying to check if its possible or not.
