Some of you may remember the tag line from Alien but now Cambridge University Spaceflight is looking to put it all to the test. Using the STRaND-1 smartphone nanosatellite that runs Android and built by the University of Surrey's Space Centre and SSTL, the STRaND-1 will carry the videos submitted by folks like yourself into outer space all in an effort to test the hypothesis that in space no one can hear you scream.
If you're looking to help out, your mission is simple. Upload a 10 second video to YouTube and submit it to the project website. Once submitted, you can get your friends and family to vote for it to give you a chance of being one of the 10 winning videos included in the mission. Even if you don't enter, you should check out the project link below. On its own, the STRaND-1 smartphone nanosatellite is a pretty cool piece of technology.

Walking around CTIA, it's always fun to find new things at random booths, and after stopping by Nyx Mobile I was met with a pleasant surprise from one of their reps. He starts the conversation with "you want to see something cool?" Of course, the geek in me wanted to scream yes, and I told him that I did. That's when he proceeded to pull out prototypes of their upcoming devices, which feature edge to edge displays. That's right, only the tiniest slither of a bezel separates the screen from the edge of the device.
The first handset that came out, the Lyuba Max, featured a 5-inch display and by doing the edge to edge display and eliminating the frame around it they were able to bring a larger screen in a smaller package. They also had a 4-inch model — the Lyuba Fun — and they will be finalizing a build of a 3.5-inch display as well. When the devices do launch, they'll run Ice Cream Sandwich, and feature specs comparable to other high-end devices. Hit the break to check out a couple other pictures, and stay tuned for updates from Nyx Mobile on availability of these devices.
