Joystick-It for iPhone and iPad!

A lot of Apple product accessories have been mass-produced ever since the launching of the company’s popular tablet, the iPad and its succeeding model, the iPad2. These accessories mostly cover a lot of the iPad’s care and its maintenance like screen guards and protectors.

However, there are also accessories for those who love playing games in their iPads. Let’s face it, playing games on a touchscreen display can be frustrating sometimes. You’re madly tapping at your screen but not hitting the virtual buttons that left you seething when the game is over. Fortunately for game enthusiasts, the American online retailer for computer lovers ThinkGeek developed a gamer-friendly accessory called the Joystick-It. Last January, ThinkGeek have released the Joystick-It for iPad.

Joystick-It is literally a physical joystick made for virtual games for the iPad. It is a stick-on accessory made out of aluminum. It works with almost all game applications with touchscreen controls installed in your device. Don’t worry about the scratches because this little toy has a soft suction cup with foam assuring you that it will not harm your screen. It is lightweight and removable. This is made to enhance the player’s gaming precision and very easy to use.

Although the release back in January made a big hit, some people still complained for the Joystick-It to have a tinier version for the iPhone. ThinkGeek has answered the complaints by releasing the Joystick-It for iPhone. With the same functions, the only difference between the first Joystick-It and the latest one is the size and the weight. Joystick-It for iPhone is lighter and a tad smaller than the first one.

While the Joystick-It was made and developed for Apple products, it would work on any touchscreen devices so Windows and Android-based users can avail one of these as well. The stocks are limited so better get one for yourself today!

Camerang: The Flying Camera!

Fond of aerial shots? How about being able to play with the camera while taking shots? Sound impossible? Not a problem. Taking your own self portraits in the air is becoming easy as it gets!

The new Camerang digital camera is invented by the ingenuity of Sanyong Park. It is created to be used for aerial photography. The concept of this camera is being a toy and a gadget at the same time. It  was designed to be original and unique. This is perfect for spontaneous outdoor activities. Most people would get one like this just out of curiosity but the designer said this was an innovation in their craft. The term “camerang” came from the root word camera and boomerang. Shaped like the latter, this gadget is thrown in the air and then hoped to return to the sender’s hand without scratches. The camera takes shots while it is spinning in the air and it doesn’t wait for the subjects to pose. Camerang is simply the refined version of other aerial cameras with a fun touch.

Worried that the shots are blurred? Worry no more! The Camerang has a centralized lens that rotates and focuses its subjects while in the air. The camera was designed to capture photos using a bird’s view. If you are more of a quirky type of person and you want some fun self-portrait shots, this one’s for you!  The Camerang camera is similar to a flying stick camera but shaped differently. Drilling a sense of abandonment, the Camerang camera has given another option of fun ways to enjoy photography and save memories.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find where to purchase it but soon as its available in the market, I will certainly have one of this!
