1. The Photoroid skin
Ryan Astle, a graphic designer / production artist living in New Brunswick in Canada, has created the “Photoroid” for iPhone – a retro cool skin inspired by the old Polaroid instant cameras. The Photoroid iPhone skin is available from the Infectious website for $14.99.
2. The Leica skin
This highly detailed plastic skin is making your Iphone look just like a Leica rangefinder camera. Available for 9 dollars at the petapixel store.
3. The Rolleiflex skin
If you are into electronic music, this app, developed by Tim Exile and Native Instrument, is a funny one. The engine behind The Mouth does something fantastically complicated but presents its findings in an intuitive and easy-to-use way. Any incoming audio is analysed and immediately auto-tuned so that pitch is determined quickly regardless of the source material.
This pitched result can then either be played back ‘as detected’ or tuned to any scale you like over a keyboard so that melodies or harmonic parts can be built up.
Today the third version of the Ipad will escape from the Lab and take a tour on the catwalk. Let’s take the occasion for looking at the early concepts for the Apple tablet, or as the Maccultists called it at that time: the iSlate.
