For future space tourist a lot of things will happen during their journey and without years of training it will be hard to keep track.

Design Question: How can future SpaceTourists have a good insight what is hapening during the Rocket Launch and journey to Space.

The SpacePad is a concept for a companion during an orbital space travel experience. It provides information about the actual situation (What is happening during the rocket-launch? What’s my altitude? How is my body reacting to the situation?) and enables a micro-gravity usage.
