By now, everyone knows that the most exciting thing about Flight is the ability to see all of your planets in one shot, but this feature was only ever available to the very top.
The company behind the flight simulation app SphericalFlight is hoping to change that, but first it needs to convince the world that it can build something of a sphere.
The spherical app will be free for anyone to download, and while that may seem like a long shot, Spheres developers are confident that the technology is possible.
Spherical flight simulator app Spheres app title Spheres Flight: Flight, Flies, and Spaceships article By creating a simple spherical flight simulator, Spanes hopes to get people excited about the possibilities of the future of flight.
“Spheres Flight is an app that lets you fly your own spacecraft, fly a spacecraft, or explore your own spaceship in the cosmos,” the developers wrote on their Kickstarter page.
“You can build your own mission, fly it to your destination, and have your own avatar that you can interact with, and fly the spacecraft on the way to your mission.”
Spheres is a company formed in 2012 by two brothers, James and Paul Hockenberry.
Their company is a little like the Lego version of NASA: they have lots of ideas, but it’s a little more like a hobby than a company.
Spheres was founded in 2014, and the team currently has about 20 employees.
The team hopes to raise $3 million in the next few weeks, but the team isn’t giving up on the dream of creating a real-life spaceflight simulator.
“We’re trying to find ways to get a realistic experience of flying, of being in space, of flying to your spacecraft,” Spanes cofounder Paul Hocksenberry told Ars.
“If we can make it so you can actually get to your spaceship and fly it and be in space and fly your spacecraft, then we’ll be happy to do it.”
The team is currently working on a few features for the app, but Spheres hopes to be ready in time for the holidays, with a release planned for January of 2020.
Spiders spherical flight app is a free app, and there’s also a website that the team hopes will make it easy for people to download and start flying their spacecraft.

You’ll also need a Google Cardboard VR headset to fly your spaceship, so you’ll need to have one of those if you want to take your spaceship to a nearby space station.
The developers aren’t done yet.
They’ve got some more features planned for the Spheres SDK, and they’ve set up a website where they’ll announce them once they’re ready.
They also hope to bring spherical flight to other devices in the future, like virtual reality headsets.
