Hello Mi Fans!
Using Data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance, Astro Reality's Lunar Pro is a 1:28,969,000 scale model of the Moon. While small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, you will be able to feel peaks and valleys of the Moon's craters that have been 3D printed to a resolution of 4000 droplets per inch. Each model is painted and finished by hand for the finest detail possible. The Lunar Pro's smartphone and tablet app is filled with captivating facts, trivia, and stories from the moon, like Apollo landing sites, named regions, and details lesser know the dark side of the Moon.

Explore the surface of the moon from the comfort of your home with the AstroReality Lunar Pro AR Enabled Moon Model. By using the moon model and AstroReality’s AR app, you can experience the moon directly in your hands via your smartphone. Through advanced AR technology, Lunar pairs with the app to teach you facts and trivia about the moon. Likewise, it simulates moon missions and enables you to go on personalized lunar adventures no matter where you are. Additionally, you’ll be able to see impact craters, textured dead volcanoes, lava flows, and seas thanks to the real topography. In fact, the moon model offers up to 0.006 millimeters per pixel precision printing accuracy. Furthermore, every Lunar Pro model is handcrafted with painted layers and finish.

Features of Lunar Pro:
Check out Lunar Pro:
The models are called Lunars, and they come in three sizes, from a little bigger than an eyeball to a little smaller than a brain. Each is made of solid poly resin, which makes them nice and weighty—palming the brain-sized Lunar Pro feels like holding a bocce ball. As a tactile object, it’s pretty satisfying to hold, stare at, or attempt to roll over your fingertips a la Jareth in Labyrinth. And the detail on each is pretty impeccable. That’s because the Lunars were modeled using topographic data collected by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. The detail is obvious: The craters feel crater-y; the mare are smooth as marble.

This is all pretty remarkable, given that nobody even knew what the far side of the moon looked like until 1959, when the Soviet Union's Luna 3 probe sent back its first grainy images. The latest lunar maps come courtesy of LRO's laser altimeter, which fired billions upon billions of photons at the moon's surface, then measured how long it took each to return. Then, scientists on Earth subtracted all these return times from the moon's radius—1,079.57 miles, which gave them an elevation value for each point. The fruit of all that labor is freely available for anyone to download on NASA's website. So if you are technically inclined, and have access to a 3-D printer, you can just make your own handheld moon.

But you still wouldn't have an AR app. AstroReality's is available for iOS or Android, and once downloaded you register your Lunar unit with a QR code. Then you line up your unit in the dotted outline on your phone’s screen. Once it recognizes your orb, the app populates the lunar features with labels and little colored icons. Tap Tycho crater and you might get a few different pictures to look at, plus a description of the feature’s age and origin. Tap the site of one of the Apollo missions, and you can watch a video of a lunar landing, or play through activities that replicate various scientific tasks the lunar astronauts had to perform.
