The EGGS Project, Exploration Geology & Geophysics Sensors, aims to develop a diverse set of robust self-righting multi-purpose data-collection platforms capable of assisting scientists/explorers in the field on Earth or through remote deployments to near-by asteroids. With an integrated camera, microscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, and configurations for adding other instruments, EGGS are a low-cost 3D printable option for students, researchers, and enthusiasts who want to learn more about an environment remotely. The EGGS feature a 3D printed shock-proof architecture, which allow them to be thrown or launched onto planetary surfaces unsafe for human exploration.
