Physical Knob for your iPhone

Gear  |  Apple
Physical Touchscreen Knobs by dsLabs for your iPhone or iPad.
"Here’s another quick hack to add more physicality to touch screen displays. Using a small to medium sized knob, you can modify it (or even use it by itself) to behave as a rotary input.
Similar to the soft stylus, the trick is finding a way to create a conductive path from your hand to the screen. We started by using copper tape, conductive fabrics (see the soft stylus) and wires to simulate two touch points on opposite sides of the knob. It takes some careful tuning to get the touch points spaced correctly and sized such that the screen reads them as a touch, but it does work with a little patience.
Alternatively, with a small knob, it’s natural to grab it such that your fingers actually touch the screen making it nothing more than a physical prop to provide some tactile feedback. It works great and doesn’t require much in terms of materials or time; just grab a small object and give it a try!"

A 2.5 Year-Old Uses an iPad for the First Time

Gear  |  Apple
Telstar Logistics founder Todd Lappin’s 2.5-year-old daughter reviews the iPad.
"As you can see, after geeking out on my Sutro Tower homescreen, she took right to it — including figuring out how to enlarge some of her favorite iPhone-legacy apps to 2x to display full-size on the iPad screen. If you’re good at understanding kid-speak, you’ll also notice that she immediately saw its potential as a video-display device. She lamented the lack of a camera, and wondered about its potential for playing games.
On the downside, she had the same frustration as many adults, where touching the screen-edge with your thumb while holding the iPad blocks input to all home screen icons. Notice also that she was confused by the splash page for FirstWords Animals, her favorite spelling game: Because the start button looked like a graphic, rather than a conventional button, she couldn’t figure out how to start the game."
