This Floating Robotic Camera Is the Cutest Thing Ever Sent Into Space

This Floating Robotic Camera Is the Cutest Thing Ever Sent Into Space

Int-Ball is short for Internal Ball Camera, and it was developed by Japan's Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). Excitingly, JAXA has just released the camera-bot's first images and videos from the ISS. It's aiming to be able to move around "anywhere at any time via autonomous flight and record images from any angle", says Japan's space agency, and will hope to help onboard ISS crew by reducing the time they spend taking photography and capturing video themselves to zero. JAXA has many goals related to this drone, one of which is totally freeing crew members from photographic duties, the end goal there being the reclamation of about 10-percent of the team's working hours. The camera, which can move autonomously or be guided by controllers on the ground, is the first drone capable of recording still images and video while moving in space, according to JAXA. Kibo is the Japanese Experiment Module aboard the ISS that the 3D printed camera robot was delivered to on June 4, 2017.

Numerous components used to to manufacture Int-Ball were produced by 3D-printing, and its design was adopted from pre-existing drone technology. With the Int-Ball in operation, however, this time could be cut to nearly zero percent. And while the whole idea might seem novel to those of us who don't understand the intricacies of a space station's operation, this footage can provide crucial feedback to both the controllers on the ground and even the astronauts in space.

Images captured by Int-Ball are beamed to people on the ground in real time, allowing scientists to efficiently collaborate with ISS astronauts on projects.
