iPad 2 as a serious writing machine (how-to) I knew when I bought the iPad 2 a while back that it would provide a number of uses for me, but I quickly discovered it fills more important roles in my work than I believed it would. One of those, a key for me, is as a serious system to use for a lot of the writing I do in my work. I write 3,000 words most days for all of the projects I have going on, and the iPad 2 has stepped up to handle a lot of the task quite nicely. I wrote about using the iPad 2 for writing a while back, and contantly receive questions about how I use it in this role. Writing as much as I do means a good keyboard is required, and the Logitech Keyboard Case (made by ZAGG) is as good as any I have tried. Harry McCracken, the writer behind Technologizer, TIME articles, and CNET contributor, has adopted the iPad 2 as his writing machine and explained why in a recent article. What makes the iPad 2 and keyboard combo so effective for my writing is the "one app at a time" nature of the tablet. See also:
Projecting Your iPad Wirelessly - Without an Apple TV Important update: May 6, 2012 - Mirror to your Windows PC as well Shortly after the release of Relection a second mirroring solution called AirPlay was released - available at Reflection and Airplay both allow mirroring of an iOS device to a Mac. Many site members had asked about a solution that would allow mirroring to a Windows PC. When iOS 5 was released many of us were thrilled with its ability to allow projection (mirroring) of your iPad to a projector using Airplay and Apple TV. A wonderful new app called Reflection has just been released. Run the Reflection app on your MacBook and then switch to your iPad. Once you select your MacBook, you can now display your iPad on the laptop screen (as seen below ... and please don't remind me how many emails I still need to open...). Reflection is a wonderful solution for any situation where you need to project your iPad screen and don't have an Apple TV. When to use Reflection rather than an Apple TV: Sam Gliksman

Zaption – Zanslöst bra! | Mitt Flippade Klassrum I tisdags var jag i Ronneby och föreläste för gymnasie/komvux-lärare om flippat klassrum med förmågor i fokus. Under föreläsningen hade jag inslag av interaktion, bl.a. fick pedagogerna möjlighet att själva, med hjälp av den digitala anslagstavlan Padlet, synliggöra olika metoder och verktyg som de använder i sitt klassrum. Ett av namnen som kom upp på vår padlet var Zaption, en av deltagarna berättade att Zaption är ett fantastiskt verktyg när man arbetar med flippat klassrum. Zaption ger användarna en möjlighet att dela flippar, men även en möjlighet att lägga in frågeställningar inne i flippen, vilket gör eleverna mer aktiva under tiden de tittar. Jag blev nyfiken och ville ta reda på mer. Nu blev jag givetvis så nyfiken att jag var tvungen att skapa ett konto på Zaption. Du får en rundtur i form av en flipp när du loggar in, här får du en kort överblick över de funktioner som finns och hur du ska göra för att använda verktyget. Då får jag fram några olika alternativ. Ps.
Interactive projector that turns any flat surface into a touch screen wins UK design award - Image 8 of 8 Light Touch transforms a projected image into a virtual 10-inch touch screen Image Gallery (8 images) Light Blue Opitcs (LBO) has won the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Innovation Awards 2010 prize for Product Design with its Light Touch interactive projector. The device uses an infra-red touch sensing system that transforms a projected image into a virtual 10-inch touch screen. View all LBO’s proprietary holographic laser projection technology (HLP) was first reported on by Gizmag in 2009, while still in development. WiFi and Bluetooth connections enable wireless device-to-device communication. The HPL technology was awarded the Product Design Innovation Award for 2010 at the IET Innovation Awards (UK), as the judging panel felt that the product both fulfilled all of the major and most of the minor selection criteria for the award, and also believed it would lead to a wide range of potential applications and products.

Holograms On iPad Demoed On Video Using Sixth Sense Technology I’ve heard many people taking about technology as a whole and that it’s not advancing as fast as in recent years which will eventually lead to a stagnation. I don’t agree at all with this statement and I believe that the advancement in technology will blow the mind of those who disagree. Per example, take a look at a technology called Sixth Sense developed by a MIT research assistant called Pranav Mistry. During the TED conference a couple of years ago, Pranav demoed a portable projector which gives people the possibility to interact with objects and the information displayed by the objects. When Sixth Sense will be adopted at large scale will allow people to see the reviews of a book in real time then holding the book. According to inventor Pranav Mistry, Sixth Sense will be accessible to the a big chunk of Earth’s population as it will cost less than $350. If you aren’t convinced by the enormous implications of Sixth Sense, then take a look at the video below.
