People in LA recently gathered to create a giant, crowd-sourced Jumbotron with their iPads. Why? Why not?
Jumboltron reminds us of this fun project from MIT that used different kinds of devices to forge one big viewing screen:
Evernote’s Peek app is a great example of innovation based on functionality — in this case, the “smart case” cover of the iPad 2.
Unit9 premiered a new gesture-based, multiplayer, mobile-to-desktop synced game called Frisbee Rush at a few weeks back and are now finishing the app to be released in the coming weeks. More details on vimeo.
Collect sounds from everyday life and use this app to make music with them!

Is there more potential for AR on tablets?
Planetary, a new app for iPad from Bloom Studio, Inc., allows you to travel through a solar system made up of your iTunes library — imagine all your albums as planets! Your favorite artists orbiting in their own universe! Celestial technology at its best.
If this is something rogue iApp developers are using to advertise their $1.50 apps then, daaaaayuuumn we could do some serious damage rock’n this kind of awesome: http://benthebodyguard.com/

Following their “Making Future Magic” creative initiative, the London-based agency Dentsu and the design agency BERG developed this impressive method of using iPads to create moving typography. The short film features animated light shapes and words that travel playfully through the dark urban landscape.
