To highlight the plight of rhinos in Southern Africa, Rogue Works LLC (based in the USA) and Capechino Animation (based in South Africa) have collaborated to design and develop Rhino Rumble, which they have opened a Kickstarter project for.

I’m sure a lot of parents want to give their children as wide a range of opportunities as possible, and one way to do that is to expose them to music to see if they have any musical abilities, iPads and smart tablets go a long way in exposing children to music composition with the range of apps available.
One such app is Visua Musio by Appart. This application allows musical compilations to be composed using geometric shapes.
If you are sick of the tinny speakers on your iPad and you need a little base on your Limp Bizkit, then you need to attach an Amplifiear when you pump out your tunes. The Amplifiear snaps to the back of your tablet and acts as an amplifier. [Read more...]
Fingle for iPad is a new iPad game available through Game Oven Studios. The game gets people to touch, which is a great feat nowadays because with technology insulating us from our fellow-man, touch naturally becomes less common. Fingle can be played between two people and involves them placing their fingers on buttons on the iPad and moving them to targets on the surface.
With the amount of movement required to progress to the next level, the players cannot help but touch each other’s hands.

If you see anything dropped from a great height, and it survives, I automatically am fascinated. Doesn’t matter what’s dropped, but when it’s an expensive piece of technology, then I’m really impressed. The guys from G-Form managed to impress me, they dropped an iPad 1300 feet with a skydiver. And it survived, without a scratch. Granted, it was encased in one of their hardcore iPad covers which consists of the G-Form iPad cover.
G-Fome started out designing elbow, knee and shin protectors for extreme sports enthusiasts and athletes, then the military began using their products for defense and now they have moved onto covers and protection for Apple products.
There are times in life when you need that extra pair of hands and sometimes sadly there is no-one with a real hand to help you out though, so what do you do? Well why not get yourself Hanfree to assist you. Your iPad sits and snaps snuggly allowing you to manoeuvre it to what ever position you wish for.

In the lead up to Christmas, I have found a great stocking filler, a way for that family member with the iPad, the iPod or the iPhone to charge and sync their device with their computer without yards of cabling getting in the way. It’s portable, light (it only weighs one ounce) and measures just 6.5 x 0.5 x 4.5 inches (16.5 x 1.27 x 11.43cm), and at only $7.48 you can get a KeyJuice for everybody.
This extremely portable charger for your iPad has been nominated by the 2011 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards honoree, is small enough to clip to your key chain but big enough to charge and sync your mobile Apple device.
