Turn your iPad into a foosball table with this interesting gadget

Yes, you read it right, now you can turn your iPad into a real foosball table! It is pretty cool to play foosball on your smartphone, but to play it on the iPad with a little foosball table, now that is a unique experience. People in New Potato Technologies are the one behind this interesting gadget which combines virtual applications and the real foosball table.

So, how does it work?

First things first, you have to meet some requirements before you can purchase this amazing foosball table, but don’t worry it is not complicated. The application which works on this stand is called the Classic Match Foosball, which is the name of the foosball table as well. You have to download the application to play on the table because this app is 100% compatible with the stand. Any other application might work, but not likely because the stand is made especially for this application. The application itself is FREE so I don’t see a problem with the download.

Now, let’s talk about the stand. There are two dimensions you can purchase because the first dimension is compatible with the iPad 1,2 and 3. The second stand, a newer model, is compatible with the iPad 3, 4 and iPad Air and Air 2.

Two sizes of foosball tables for iPad

Both of the tables look pretty much the same, except some minor design changes which don’t affect the game. With this foosball table, you will get 4 legs, 1 stand for the iPad, 8 rods and 2 scoring systems (one in red and one in blue). The table assembly is extremely simple; all you need to do is to attach the legs on the stand and insert the rods into 8 holes, just below the place where you put the iPad and you are done. On the bottom part of the table is 1 USB port, which means that you can plug the table and charge your iPad while you play the match. Forget about the empty battery notification during the most interesting part of the game.

When you assemble the stand for the iPads and place them on the stand, your iPad will look like the mini foosball table. On both longer sides of the iPad are 4 rods used to control the players in the game. On both shorter sides of the iPads are scoring systems so you will have to move the bean when you score – just like on the real foosball table.

The Classic Match Foosball application

The foosball application is really good. I like the fact that the rods and the players in the app move the same second so you really have a feeling like you are on the real table. Rods are extra sensitive so they register every move you make, no matter how small it is. Unfortunately, the rods in the reality and the rods in the game aren’t in line, they are moved a little bit, but that is something you can get used to after 3-4 matches.

This gadget is one excellent product which will keep you entertained for hours and I think it can be the perfect gift for every fooser on the planet.

Get Slow-Mo for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C

The iPhone 5s has an amazing new feature i.e. the slow-mo feature which lets you take videos at 120 FPS and then play it at a quarter of the speed.

Unfortunately this feature is not available on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C but do not get disappointed because there is a solution.

The SlowCam app bring slow-mo feature to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. This app is a easy to use application. You just need to press the slow motion button to record at a high frame rate slow motion.

Obviously the quality will not be as good as the iPhone 5s for the simple reason that iPhone 5s is capable of recording videos at 120 FPS whereas the previous versions of the iPhone can record only at 60 FPS.

The app costs just $1.99.

Rumor: iPhone 5S coming to India before November 1

Apple sold 9 million units of iPhone’s in the first week – (Thanks China). This time Apple seems to be showing some love to India.

According to Aptronix, a brand new Apple reseller in Juhu, Mumbai, the iPhone 5S is most likely to come out before Diwali.

The reason here is simple and obvious. iPhone in India is a prestige possession and people spend big bucks in India only during festive season. Diwali is India’s biggest festival. Apple would not want to lose out on this opportunity.

According to other rumors, Apple is all set to open up 100 stores in stores in 2 tire and 3 tire cities in the next 6-9 months to cater to the wealthy people in those cities.

Pricing, however is not yet known. If tech pandits are to be believed the iPhone 5S would cost Rs.50000+ but according to our sources(do not wished to be named) the iPhone 5S would come out at the same rate the iPhone 5 came out in India (Rs.1000 – 2000 difference might be there but will not cross Rs.50000). The iPhone 5C is expected to cost around Rs. 39000.
