    We have something remarkably cool to share with you guys today. One of our members on DroidForums.net has been developing a creative, informative and entertaining project for quite a while now. His username in the forums is Serpico, and he has been instrumental in the past in helping us with Android figurine contests and giveaways by donating them for us. His latest endeavor/adventure is that he developed the Android Rocket & Aeronautics Commission (ANDRAC). It's is basically just a sub-orbital version of NASA, only it's for Android figurines!

    Since, I won't be able to explain it any better than he does himself, here are the details in a quote straight from the ANDRAC website,

    The video above is his first official launch that was held on July 21st.

    What can we say? This is one of the coolest things we have seen in a long time. You owe it to yourself to check out his website below, but be forewarned, you may have a "nerdgasm." :D

    That was awesome! Nice job. I remember the first launch. I'm glad you followed up with it.
