On My iPhone/iPad…World of Tanks Blitz

With my gaming son sharing a desk with me in the home office, I get to see a lot of game play, especially beta and early access games. He has been playing World of Tanks on his PC for a while now, but the other day he grabbed house iPad to install the iOS version of the game. While it can't be nearly as complex as a PC-based game, after playing through the tutorial myself, I am quite impressed at the interaction, graphics and game play. I have even run it on my iPhone and although the type and graphics are a bit small, even on my iPhone 4s, the game plays  quite well and is very responsive. Since World of Tanks Blitz is a "Free-toPlay" game, it costs nothing to check it out and see if it might be a good casual game for you.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...
