Tiny1 launched successfully on Indiegogo and still going strong!
Wow, it has been an amazing crowdfunding campaign for the past week. The TinyMOS team have been developing the Tiny1 camera since April 2014. The 2 years leading up to the launch has been filled with excitement, mixed with anxiety. There were doubts that we’re making a product nobody wanted. The campaign obliterated all of that, TinyMOS is here to stay!
100,000 campaign goal within 4 hours
250,000 stretch goal hit within 6 days of launch – unlocked Northern Lights Notification feature
Tiny1’s launch came to a roaring start. The prototype reveal was met with thunderous applause with a small crowd of about 70 people. Everyone was amazed at the size of the device, that captured the beauty of the Milky Way and is about to bring astrophotography to the masses.

We held a small demonstration of our technology on our interim prototype.
Interim USB 3.0 prototype
The miniscule USB 3.0 prototype runs tethered to a Linux laptop, producing an impressive 14 fps at full resolution. The completed model, will run through MIPI lanes, achieving a class leading 60 fps at Quad HD resolution. The high frame rates will significantly improve capture quality of solar system objects such as Jupiter, Saturn and other planets.
We also demonstrated our intuitive user interface, via our Tiny1 Astronomy Camera Demo, now available on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tinymos.camera&hl=en). The app shows our star map, capture pre-sets and tons of design details that went into the Tiny1, for example the night mode – giving the screen a red overlay to preserve night vision when stargazing.

Given the strong response on Indiegogo, we have given our investors a strong boost in confidence. We will be developing more accessories for the Tiny1 camera system, making astronomy even easier for the everyday person, bringing astronomy exploration into your hands.
Do spread the word on our campaign. The higher amount raised, the better the Tiny1 system and accessories can be. We aim to be the world’s ultimate space exploration camera and you made that possible!
