Very cool technology being toyed with that gives you a 3D view based on the position of your head. How? Like CamStache, it uses your front-facing camera for head tracking and then alters the image based on your angle. Pretty damn smart. (via MacRumors)
What a week for iPhones and beer. First I hear the arcade classic Tapper is coming to iOS as Tapper World Tour. Now there’s an app to help you count all the beers you knock back in the real world, BeerStat.
Do you really need a tally for your drinking? Really? Maybe not. But what’s cool about this is all the stats it spits back at you. Not just which brands you’ve drank most but what percentage of your body weight you’ve drank in beer, or how much money you’ve spent on beer this month. No doubt, too much.
Just announced at CES. Not quite as awesome as the Butterfly Knife Bottle Openers, but still pretty damn cool, the iPhone Beer Opener case also comes with a free app that plays your favorite drinking song upon opening. Plus, it hangs on your belt so you can sport a sweet IT guy look. But then you’d probably need the BlackBerry version (coming soon). Order yours at Be A Headcase.
Even more impressive than a first like iPad-as-owners-manual, or a VO from Jeff Bridges, is how the new Equus glovebox can actually fit an iPad. Mine barely holds a glove. Maybe that’s ‘cuz it’s Swarovski encrusted?
$48k iPad comes with free Hyundai
While every Equus comes with a 16GB WiFi Apple iPad you don’t have to own the car to get the app, download it free on iTunes. But it might make more sense if you did.
With the new Daft Punk video and soundtrack finally out, along with the final Legacy trailers, there’s not much new to expect before the 17th. So it’s a good time to mine the original Tron to pass the time. Here’s a couple easter eggs you may or may not’ve caught. Yes, they’re both real.
“So I’ve been writing music in my basement for a few years now. Fight club was a very influential movie in my high school days [daze] and I loved the song at the end. Since then, I’ve heard it thousands of times and decided to make a chip-tune cover of it for your listening pleasure. I’ve performed this song live on a handful of occasions and it’s always been a favorite. I’ll try and get the sax and guitar parts uploaded someday. Enjoy!”
