People don't have to be astronomers to appreciate the night sky, but those who want to delve a little deeper into the presence of constellations will want to get their hands on the Orion Stargazing Companion. It may look like a modern magnifying glass, but it is actually a cosmic tool that identifies stars and particular star formations.

The Orion Stargazing Companion was designed by Audrey Yrieix from the Institut Superieur de Design. Made with beginners in mind, it not only connects the stars to show the outline of constellations, it also allows users to "zoom in and out by bringing the device closer to their face and read information about the stars on the screen," writes Psfk.
