spelfie, an award-winning startup based in Glasgow, has made its mission to bring defence-grade real-time satellite imagery to the masses, by capturing sponsored events and its fans from space. Participants take a selfie on the app as an AIRBUS satellite passes overhead and the two images are combined to create the spelfie - an ‘out of this world’ check-in from space, optimised for social media. spelfie offers a carbon efficient alternative to traditional digital marketing strategies.
