Scrunched-Up Constellation Maps

The Crumpled Sky Map Offers a Way to View the Stars

— June 29, 2013 — Unique
A star map is ideal for all those nighttime hangouts. The ‘Crumpled Sky Map’ is one way of gazing at the night sky, but without having to go outside of your room.

If you’ve ever wanted to hold the universe in your hands, but lack the necessary resources for universal domination, then the Crumpled Sky Map will offer you the next best thing. The star map is printed onto Tyvek, a durable waterproof paper-like material, so carrying it outside or spilling orange juice onto it won’t be much of an issue. It also glows in the dark, which makes it ideal if you want to generate a romantic atmosphere with your significant other. The crumpled-up star map measures approximately 90cm x 90cm and can also be used as wallpaper.
Trend Themes
1. Interactive Star Maps - Companies could develop interactive star maps with augmented reality and customizable features for a more immersive stargazing experience.
2. Eco-friendly Navigation Tools - Sustainable materials and production techniques could be used for creating navigation tools such as maps and compasses.
3. Nighttime Home Decor - More products that are designed for aesthetics and function for nighttime home decor, such as glowing wallpaper or star patterned bedding.
Industry Implications
1. Astronomy & Navigation - Astronomy and navigation companies could explore incorporating innovative materials for their products and expanding into the growing niche of romantic and home-stargazing markets.
2. Home Decor - Home decor companies can develop innovative products for stargazing enthusiasts including but not limited to designs inspired by the night sky, such as space-themed wallpapers.
3. Tourism - Tourism companies can offer creative star-gazing experiences, incorporating the Crumpled Sky Map and other innovative stargazing tools, such as campouts in areas with low levels of light pollution.
