The BBC say:
A soft toy controlled by a Raspberry Pi computer has re-created Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking skydive.Mr Baumgartner made the highest ever freefall in October 2012 when he jumped from a balloon about 39km up.
A bear called Babbage has now leapt from a similar height after ascending beneath a hydrogen-filled balloon.
The Raspberry Pi low-cost micro-computer inside Babbage transmitted his position and shot stills and video throughout the flight and descent.
