AppSeed

This incredible concept app… concappt, is the amazing brainchild of Greg Goralski. It uses computer vision to turn initial scamps into interactive wireframes with functional buttons, maps and other features.

This could be a quick and amazing tool to bring ideas to life before they even get to see dev or design.

AppSeed

I think this is an amazing idea that could really help the realisation of ideas as well as the initial sell. However, they still need your help. The project is still looking for backers through KickStarter. So what are you waiting for!

iPad Joystick!

Apologies for a quick post, I am currently holidaying in Spain and there is a small group of old people that are just  about to have their ace handed to them on the tennis court (see what I did there?).

Anyway, look… You can get a joystick for your iPad.

Oh yes, I’ve decided to refer to any device supporting such awesome retro mechanics as a JiPad, it would have been Joypad but they already exist.

So here is more information and links to purchase from ThinkGeek.

Give your stubby digits a bionic upgrade

Bring your tablet-based gaming to the next level with the JOYSTICK-IT Tablet Arcade Stick. The JOYSTICK-IT gives you a real physical joystick for increased precision with touchscreen based games. Simply press down to attach the JOYSTICK-IT to your tablet based computer’s screen for improved gaming. No wires or batteries needed.

The JOYSTICK-IT works with thousands of different game apps. Any game that has an on-screen control pad of some kind is perfect for the JOYSTICK-IT. Simply run your game of choice, place the JOYSTICK-IT over the on-screen control pad and push down. The JOYSTICK-IT sticks to the glass of your display and is ready for action. The lightweight solid milled-aluminum construction of the JOYSTICK-IT adds more precise movement and faster response time for enhanced playability. When you’re done, simply pull-up on the JOYSTICK-IT to remove from the screen.

    

 

Hardware Compatibility
The JOYSTICK-IT works with any device which features a capacitive touchscreen. This includes the iPad™ and many Android™ tablets. The JOYSTICK-IT will work with mobile phones that have capacitive touchscreen displays, however it may not be ideal for this purpose because of its size.

 

Game Compatibility
The JOYSTICK-IT will work with any game that features a virtual on-screen control pad of some kind. Games that use swiping, swipe-style joypads, joypads with variable on-screen locations, or complex finger based gestures will not work properly with the JOYSTICK-IT.

Dickheadometer

To promote the retro/Shoreditch cool pixelating iPhone app, ‘Pixel Face’, Grimaceworks created this lovely little webgame, based on the hipsters hit ‘being a dickhead is cool’.
Answer the kwestions in this kwl kwz to find out exactly how bigger tw@ you are with the ‘Dickheadometer’:

Yeah? What of it??? Being a dickhead is cool!

What surprised me was that it seems to be built solely to promote an app, without any branding (cue gasp).
…unless the app was built to promote the production company. Whoa dude, I think I’m tweaking.
