iPad with a 3D display spotted at Display Taiwan show? [video]

An iPad with a 3D display is supposedly being shown off by display vendor CPT at the Display Taiwan show. The device which has been caught on video, appears to be a first generation iPad; however all product branding has been covered. The display requires the use of special polarizing glasses.

Netbooknews discovered the device and is speculating that this may be a prototype of the iPad 3. It looks much more likely to us that this is a publicity stunt by CPT to gain some attention to its display products. Maybe they decided to modify an original iPad with a 3D display just as a proof of concept. Take a look at the video after the break then head back here to let us know what you think!

Nuance release Dragon Remote Mic, use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as a wireless mic [video]

Nuance has released an iOS application that turns your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a WiFi connected microphone. The app runs in conjunction with Nuances’ just updated Dragon NaturallySpeaking software.

In conjunction with the launch of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5, Nuance introduced the Dragon Remote Mic App, a free application on the Apple iOS app store which makes it possible to use an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad as a wireless microphone for Dragon via a Wi-Fi network connection. Many customers have requested to use their smartphones and other mobile devices with Dragon to have more flexibility with how and where they dictate with Dragon. The new Dragon Remote Mic App takes advantage of the nearly 200 million iOS devices in use today, and transforms the device into a wireless microphone that easily captures dictation and controls applications on your PC.

Of course, it is widely rumored that Nuances’ VoiceOver technology will form a major part of iOS 5; when it is eventually released in the fall. Only yesterday we saw some evidence of setting screens for the voice integration in the latest beta release.

There is some bad news if you are considering picking this free app up from the App Store. You will need to buy the PC software which starts from $99 as an upgrade from a previous version. There is no Mac version either, it is PC only!

Take a look at the app in action in the video after the break. If any of our readers have the software and try out the app, please let us know how it works in the comments!
