This is a cool project I came across from MIT’s Media Lab. T(ether) is an experimental app that combines gestural interfaces, computer vision, and collaboration into an experience straight our of a sci-fi movie. Creators Matthew Blackshaw, Dávid Lakatos, Hiroshi Ishii, and Ken Perlin call T(ether) “a tool for spatial expression” that “acts as a… Read More

Just saw this on tuow.   They say it will be out soon, but no date. What I do not understand is why wait so long?  I guess it took the release of iPad2 to finally push them enough to build it.  So stay tuned. From tuow: A few features in the full PC/Mac app didn’t… Read More

It was developed in collaboration with… Read More

Last month I blogged and shot a video showing off a Black Eyed Peas augmented reality app I made using Metaio’s Junaio platform. At the time, I was surprised that Metaio didn’t share or retweet with their community this app I made as they usually do with work that others do with their platform and… Read More

Crazy.  You can now jailbreak and UNLOCK iOS4  for the iphone4 ipad from the web browser.  Now this is not new news per say, but there have been some issues with the current jailbreak in that some people have been experiencing problems with MMS and Facetime. As I always advise my readers, NEVER jailbreak right… Read More

When the iphone 4 was announced, Steve made a big point about the higher resolution capability of iphone 4 with the new ‘Retina’ display.  Now there is a bit of marketing hype there. Dissecting this would be a whole other post, but the upside is now there is a value proposition in putting high resolution… Read More

Just in time for the world cup eh?  I just came across the video for this and it looks pretty cool. Supports single player and two players.  And I guess 4 players if you don’t mind crowding around the thing. The physics and movement reaction looks pretty good for being a flat surface.  I once… Read More

Wow.  Just read in Techcrunch, ( ta for the tip @thekenyeung ) that HP is killing the slate.  At least in its current format. There is a possibility it can come back running WebOS.  But till we know for sure, its dead. So who is left?  Google.  I have not heard much on the gSlate,… Read More

So the iPad has been out for just over a week now and after using it a few time and talking with and watching how others use it; I’ve observed that although the iPad is just a big iPod touch, its also complete different just because of the screen size. Yes, yes, the CPU is… Read More

I’m really surprised I get this question.  I was asked 3 times and I figured I would write a short post on the answer. YES..   Ok, now ‘why’ its yes.. You do NOT have to jailbreak you iPad to tether.  You only have to jailbreak the iPhone.  (if you are using an iphone that is) … Read More

A challenger appears!!  The Great Tablet War continues.  Apple was the first major player on the field and completely destroyed all competitors to the point that we cannot even remember their names…  But that dominance will only hold for so long. On Engadget (who else) we have a leak of the new HP Slate.  And… Read More

So this is fun. We all know the big win with the iPad is the large screen; yes I know, its just an over-sized iPod touch, but still, that size change makes all the difference. For me, it will be game play (which I do not have time for anymore ) reading (and please no… Read More
