KORG iELECTRIBE Gorillaz Limited Edition Mini Review

KORG iELECTRIBE Gorillaz Limited Edition Mini Review

This isn't a limited edition review, instead this is a review of a limited edition app - interesting, yes? Actually what they're saying is that the app will be $9.99 for the first 10,000 units. What that generally means, when you're purchasing artwork anyways, is that the rest will be MORE expensive. Could it be that this app will tear through 10,000 downloads then demand more money because it's doing so well? Have a look at our miniature review below.

Korg Monotron meets iPad iElectribe & Wii Nunchuk for music mangling [Video]

Take a Korg Monotron analog synth, throw in an iPad running Korg's excellent iElectribe app and then use an Arduino to tie the whole thing together: you're not only hitting some of the geekiest keywords around these days, but getting an awesome, glitchy, electronic music mangling setup.  YouTuber Denkitribe has been circuit bending his Monotron, coming up not only with the system described above, but one in which the accelerometer and joystick of a Wii Nunchuk are used to control the battery-powered synth.

iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

The past 365 days have been, without a doubt, the Year of the iPad 2, and as you're about to see, this includes more than just great sales and undeniable attention from both consumers and developers the same. It all started in March as the Apple iPad 2 went on sale. Of course we pre-struck with an early What should I get guide and a few reviews of the device itself by our head writers. We had rather interesting (and telling) results in a poll from March asking if people would be buying an iPad 2, and an article also all the way back in March foretold much on how it's so hard to compete with the iPad. Then the new year brought fourth an event of giant proportions. Behold the 2011 year in the most omnipotent tablet on the market.

iPad 2 shipping now within 1-2 week range

Waits for the iPad 2 are getting down to a reasonable timeframe now, as the Apple Store is showing 1-2 week delivery times.

The demand for the device is still high, and the iPad still predicted to be the bestselling tablet through 2015. Now, though, it may begin to be a bit easier to get your hands on one.

DIY physical controls for iPhone touchscreen [Video]

DIY physical controls for iPhone touchscreen [Video]

One of the ways that Microsoft's Surface has always distinguished itself from more mundane touchscreens is in its ability to recognise physical controls placed; now the iPhone can have something similar.  dsLabs have put together a DIY hardware knob that can be used with a virtual control on the iPhone (or, indeed, another multitouch-capable touchscreen device), using little more than some conductive tape.
