I suppose the title could also be called rich people furnitures too. Do you have a laptop and often like to do your work on it while sitting in front of your tv? Well now you don’t need to make it so complicated. No more dragging the laptop out into the lounge and run out of battery after a few hours, then to find yourself looking for the laptop power adapter. Because the Athena Multimedia Sofa will take care of all of that, it’s got its own built in pc. The designer Artanova hasn’t given any specs, but from what it looks like, the display should have touch capability. The luxury though does come at an eye-popping price of approx. $15,436, which seems like a bit over the top in these hard times – so the PC in this sofa better be a quiet one, if not that would be quite annoying!
Who says you can’t draw with touch screen devices and gadgets? Just like when we showed you the art work drawn using the Nintendo DS, here’s a few amazing pieces created using some of the iPhone’s latest artistic applications Brushes, MyPaint and a few others.
Its been such a long time since I even heard anyone mention about this game. Some of you who have owned the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) in the past may have even had this game come with it. Though this version of Duck Hunt isn’t exactly created by the same developers who brought the original game to life on the NES, Duck Hunt on the iPhone is played basically in the same way, which is fantastic!
There are a few differences though, there is now a Nintendo 64 style joystick controller on the iPhone’s touch screen instead of the regular keypad the NES had.
And according to Venturebeat’s analysis…
Still, the game is missing four crucial ingredients. First, it doesn’t have the game’s classic dog to pick up the dead ducks for you when you shoot them and laugh at you when you miss them (the developers note this is coming). Second, the game doesn’t have any sound, so it lacks the great mocking laugh the dog makes (the developers also note that this is coming). Third, it doesn’t have the awesome Nintendo Zapper gun (sadly, this won’t be coming, so I can’t put it up to the screen and cheat). Fourth, I’m guessing it doesn’t have Nintendo’s blessing.
I guess the fourth factor is the most crucial, though the Duck Hunt iPhone version’s developers have already acknowledged Nintendo in their application notes and called their emulator the iPES for iPhone Entertainment System. This probably won’t be enough to keep it around, so if you want Duck Hunt for your iPhone, it would be a good idea to get it through the App Store when you can (for $0.99).
If you fancy checking out how well Duck Hunt plays on your iPhone first, then watch this quick video below…
So it is possible after all. Luke Hutch has figured a more ‘simpler’ way to get a full working multitouch on the T-mobile G1. He has published a video to prove its not a joke and also a list of instructions for keen developers.
… he has figured out a way to demonstrate full working multitouch on a stock T-Mobile G1, and he even provides the video to prove it and a list of instructions for developers to follow suit.
Check out the demonstration video below, it ran smoothly and responsively, I’m sure all Android / G1 fans will be wanting to have this on your phones after you’ve seen it:
