iPad stands are a dime a dozen, but this is the first that I’ve seen that’s made out of plyboo, which is plywood made out of bamboo. I don’t know about you guys, but I find this mount strangely appealing.
Remember the $0.69 (USD) business card holder-turned-iPad stand? This is the exact opposite of that:
It’s called the PC Set Stand, and it’s made by Japanese company Resound. It was originally made for notebooks and portable DVD players, but then Resound realized that it works with the iPad too.
There are probably a million different iPad stands out there, but none of them have the simple appeal of this one: it uses rubber bands and pencils so that your iPad can rest peacefully still while you browse.
The quest to bring Flash to Apple’s tablet continues, and we have yet another contender. A developer going by the name of Comex (who also made the iOS jailbreaking software Spirit) has ported the Android Flash runtime to the iPad.
While nobody at Apple intended for the screen of the iPad to support pressure-sensitivity, there’s a demo video floating around showing off a proof-of-concept for this truly artistic usage of the iPad’s multi-touch screen.
You can really imagine all of the cool drawing programs you could create if you could detect the pressure applied with a stylus, and the guys at Ten One Design have figured out a way to do this, even though it’s not officially supported by Apple.
Fresh from the streets of Korea comes the N-Board, a new gadget which lets you convert your iPad into an (almost) full-fledged netbook computer.
The handy N-Board acts as an easel to prop up your iPad, but also sports a hub with 4 USB ports, and what I thought was an unnecessary cooling fan.
I’m sure most of you who saw ThinkGeek’s iCade April Fools’ prank wished it was real. Your wish is about to be granted! The folks at Freekade make tiny arcade cabinets for a living, so it’s not that hard for them to turn the iCade into a real product.
The main competitor to FIFA, Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer franchise (aka Winning Eleven), finally gets ported for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The game has two control schemes: the first is a “true flow” control system that uses the accelerometer and touch controls, while the second scheme offers a virtual d-pad and buttons, which will suit more advanced players.
It’s every geek’s nightmare: mistakenly putting your precious gadgets into a bag and accidentally having them thrown out! This happened to Eric Boehs and he managed to use MobileMe to track down his lost iPad and iPhone.
These Pac-Man stickers from Moscow are perfect for adorning the back of your iPad, iMac or Mac Book, thanks to the incorporation of the Apple logo as a fruit for Pac-Man to gobble down. From what I recall, the apple was worth about 700 points in the game, so it’s a pretty good bonus opportunity to gobble one of these down.
Not only do these iPad and iPhone have googley eyes, they have legs!
Built by Terasaki-san, the iPad Walking Robot and iPhone Walking Robot are so cute we wanna puke. Check ’em out in all their leggy goodness in the video clip below:
Okay, so they don’t really “walk” – it’s more like a wobbly-slide, but it’s still cute-puke-worthy, no?
In what could be one of the coolest mods I’ve seen in a long time, this Japanese modder took an old Macintosh classic and turned it into the best iPad docking station you’ll ever see.
While the concept is simple, it’s the execution that’s just so perfect.
