Sphero Releases Sharky the Beaver Mixed Reality App

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Sphero LogoGNC first saw Sphero at CES last year and it’s a really cool toy: a rugged waterproof ball controlled from a smartphone or tablet. So what has Sphero been up to in the past year…Todd and Don find out from Ian Bernstein, CTO Founder.

While the  hardware is unchanged from last year, Sphero has grown the number and type of companion apps from around 5 apps to over 20 with several produced by third parties. New on the scene is a mixed reality app which uses the tablet or smartphone’s camera to track Sphero and overlay Sharky the Beaver on the device’s screen. It’s particularly fun as the real-world interaction with Sphero creates a relationship with the cartoon character which makes it that bit more believable.

Sphero works with both iOS and Android devices, and retails for around $130. Lots of fun and there’s an SDK if you feel like rolling your own (sorry!)

Take Your Mobile Where Others Fear to Tread

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

LifeProofFinding device covers that really offer waterproofing (as opposed to water resistance) can be a challenge. Lifeproof has concentrated on making devices into truly water capable – testing to at least six feet submersion. The camera lens covers are glass, intended for rugged adventure in places where a camera is not normally found. In a consumer application, this allows parents to get into the pool with their kids while shooting photos or video, and go underwater, without concern on damage of the smartphone. It is available for the iPhone4/4S and iPhone 5, as well as the iPad 2.

The same technology especially important to the medical environment: the multi-touch capability of the iPad is an essential part of the operation, which has become part of the standard kit for emergency responders. Lifeproof has adapted their technology to insure that this capability is not compromised by the protective case. TPN Interview by Andy McCaskey, SDRNews and Daniel J. Lewis, The Audacity To Podcast.

A “NetFlix” Like Service for News Papers Around the World

Friday, February 8th, 2013

PressreaderMoving the Newspaper industry into the digital world is a challenge around the world. The tablet reader is probably the best thing that has happened to newspapers – and this new service called PressReader allows you to aggregate over 2300 newspapers from around the world – replicas of  thousands of newspapers for a low fee of $30 per month. The traditional business model is no longer sustainable – but online versions of newspapers in web page form is not kept pace. The form factor of the tablet and availability of WiFi has changed the physical delivery of content as well as the mode of consumption. With a natural-feeling reading process, the tablet makes it much more newspaper-like and opens up a whole new group of consumers.

Solid Mount for iDevices

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Rockform logoSturdy mounting systems for smartphones and tablets are sometimes hard to come by. If you have a Hummer or similar rugged off-road vehicle, this might be the smartphone mount for you. Integrated anti-slip backing keeps it on track when not installed and locked in to it’s mount.

Their original product was a CNC-machined base for iPhone charging. Since their manufacturing background includes high performance muffler and exhaust systems for motorcycle racing, it was a natural extension of the capabilities of their shop. The newer systems build on this same rugged approach to design, with the Roc-Form continuing the tradition, being milled from a single block of metal.
