Even though it’s the biggest Android smartphone out there, I doubt whether the Galaxy Note is visible from space. Still, in an apparent effort to show that size matters, Samsung unveiled a portrait of André Kuipers yesterday that clearly is. Measuring roughly a football fields and a half, and is comprised of 36,922 portraits of André’s Dutch fans. If you participated, you should be able to find yours at www.groetandre.nl.
Kuipers, currently on board the International Space Station, has responded to this example of “Not-so-Near Field Communication” saying that he could clearly recognize himself, and thanked everyone involved. Samsung Benelux has released a “making of” video that I’ll embed below.
