The CruxSKUNK keyboard for iPad has appeared on Kickstarter and is looking for backing to fund its development and eventual manufacture. Forget the name, as it doesn’t do this iPad accessory any justice at all and take a look at this amazingly thin keyboard that could take typing on your iPad to the next level.
Padintosh is an iPad case that looks like an original Macintosh. I'll let all that geek awesome sink in for a just a moment... Ready for more? Okay: It works with both the iPad 2 and the new iPad, is compatible with Smart Covers, and the hard casing is both slim and protective. Oh, you meant about the awesome vintage Mac style?
I love hybrid stylus pens like the AlluPen Pro from Just Mobile. I use traditional ink pens all the time, and it's so much more convenient to have capacitive stylus tip available at the same time. I sometimes find them to be heavier than single-purpose pens or styluses, but the simple utility makes them worth it. The AlluPen Pro is also extremely well balanced, which helps enormously.
The Griffin Binder Insert Case for iPad is a brilliant idea. I'm actually shocked I haven't seen more of these! It seems like the prefect accessory for those headed back to school.
The basic idea for the Griffin Binder Insert Case is this -- take an iPad case, press three standard spaced holes along one side, and make it perfectly fit a school or work binder. I love it. There's even a built-in pen holder which you can use for a regular pen to take your paper notes, a stylus to take your iPad notes, or even better, a hybrid stylus pen that lets you do both all in one.
I love the Brick Joysticks by GrayHaus. I was worried about them at first. I didn't think the little, tiny suction cups could stick to my iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. But they do. Mostly. And they have a variation called the bend-type as well that uses an elasticized band as well as a suction cup and provides an incredible range of motion for iOS gaming.
Find my Car Smarter is a combination iPhone app and Bluetooth 4.0 accessory whose simple purpose is to easily, automagically keep track of your car when you've parked it somewhere, anywhere, that may be difficult to find on your own.
Whether it's a crowded mall parking lot, event venue spill-over, or as close as you could come on a city street, Find my Car Smarter's tiny USB Bluetooth 4.0 dongle will fire up and drop a GPS beacon where ever you park, and the Find my Car Smarter app will lead you right back.
The SuperTooth Buddy is a simple no-nonsense Bluetooth 2.1 device that will connect up to 2 iPhones (or other phones, if for some reason you're not all in on the Apple gear) for hand free use in a car, truck, or other vehicle. Since more and more jurisdictions are forbidding talking or otherwise using a mobile device in your hands while driving, accessories like the SuperTooth Buddy are becoming essential for everyone from those who drive all day for a living, to those who drive to work, to those who drive the kids around.
The Adonit Jot Touch is one of the first of a new generation of stylus pens for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad that uses Bluetooth technology in addition to traditional capacitance to allow for pressure sensitivity and a wider artistic range.
So, while the Adonit Jot Touch looks like the Adonit Jot Pro, including the removable cap, the smooth, elgantly machined body, and the thin, hard writing tip capped by a plastic, capacitive disk, a lot has changed on the inside.
You may recall the Pebble E-Paper watch that launched on Kickstarter earlier this year and managed to get over $10 million worth of pledges. Well the guys have released an update on its progress along with a demonstration of the user interface that you can expect to see if you were one of the successful backers.
The AR.Drone's accompanying iPhone app, FreeFlight, has recently been updated to version 2.0 (2.1 at the time of this writing), and is now new and improved, with easier to use navigations, overlays, and sharing options. So what, if any difference does it make to new and old Droners alike?
