If you're reading iPhoneLife.com, you already have an iOS device, or plan on getting one for the holidays. But the fun doesn't have to stop there. You will want to leverage some of the great accessories available for the iOS platform, especially iPads. Here are a few to consider:
3D printing is all the rage, but how do you get designs into your computer in order to print them? Enter the Structure Sensor, launched on Kickstarter. They sought $100,000 and earned more than $1 million! Just attach the sensor to your iOS device and capture objects and spaces instantly—even people! Use those designs for CAD and 3D printing; but remember, with great power comes great responsibility!
Last year, I bought a guitar for my daughter and it has gathered dust since that day. I should have acquired a JamStik or other high-tech option, which would have been more likely to keep her attention. PUC, the makers of JamStick, now have a gadget for iPads that wirelessly connects MIDI-based musical instruments. The surprisingly tiny PUC works with hundreds of music-based apps and turns your iPad into a synthesizer and recording device.
The MOCET Communicator turns your iPad into an HD VoIP phone station with enhanced audio quality. Plus it acts as a convenient stand and charging base. Make and receive calls from your iPad and enjoy high quality sound while listening to music, watching movies, and participating in video conferences.
Before ordering any of these products, make sure you check which iPad model you have (Lightning or 30 pin, Air, iPad 2, etc., to make sure any you order the right accessory.) We all know that the iPad is the most popular tablet and most sought-after gift. With these accessories, the iPad becomes even more desirable and useful!
