Michael Li, co-Founder of the PlayBook Moon Landing Initiative, let us know that they want to see QNX on the moon. Here’s the word on what they’re trying to accomplish:
PlayBook Moon Landing is a non-profit initiative with the mission of building a moon rover powered by Canadian technology (BlackBerry’s QNX operating system) and landing it onto the moon. Our objective is to inspire Canada the way John F. Kennedy inspired the U.S. with the moon landings in the 1960’s. We are aiming to spark a generation of breakthrough innovation in Canada. Our long term goal is to make Canada a world leader in high tech.
QNX is definitely powerful enough to operate a moon rover. We’d gladly like to see a PlayBook powered moon rover searching through some moon rocks. You can check out more information on the project by visiting www.playbookmoon.ca.
