"The camera attaches to your wall or ceiling using a magnetic mount that lets you swivel the camera to get the optimum field of view, then sends its signals wirelessly to your home network. Unlike other systems that require a running computer, and at least one webcam to operate, the iZON can stream audio and video directly to your iOS device. It can be configured to send push notifications when the camera detects motion or audio, and can even record what's happening directly to a private access only YouTube channel. "

The Table Drum Augmented Audio application allows iOS device users to turn that acoustic finger pounding into digitized drum sounds, in real time. The app works like a drum pad but instead of tapping the screen to trigger samples, it uses the microphone to listen for taps from your fingers. It’s smart enough to distinguish between 4 different sounds too. So the sound of your finger tapping the dinner table could be used to trigger a high hat sound, while the clink of your fork on your glass could trigger a kick drum sound.
It's available now from the iTunes Store for US$3.99 .
