Best games for iPhone via VR glass

Dive City Rollercoaster by Dive Games
Go on a rollercoaster ride. The sensation of speed and movement is compelling and was enough to confuse both stomach and inner ear of our resident VR enthusiast at EightOnes.

Moorente by Die Etagen GmbH
Go on a hunt for virtual ferruginous ducks. Just “aim” your gun at an overhead duck (i.e. keep it in your crosshairs for a second or two) and blammo!

Stereoscopic Tunnel Effectby John Tsiombikas
Take a non-stop tour through a hypnotic tunnel. By default, the app isn’t configured for 3D, so tap the screen and enable stereoscopic rendering before slipping your iPhone into Cardboard. You may also want to adjust the position of the screen divider.

The Height by Shoogee GmbH & Co. KG
A game about heights set in a futuristic abstract cityscape. The Height challenges you to explore a 3D-rendered scaffolding, collecting items as you go. To start or stop walking, you must look down at your feet for a few seconds. (Like, literally look down.) Very cool, but not for those afraid of heights.

Tales From The Minus Lab by USC ICT MxR
Explore “Tales From The Minus Lab”. Simply load the app onto your iPhone or iPod touch and insert it into your 3D viewer. Hold the viewer up to your eyes and “look” around The Minus Lab. You will fly forward in whichever direction you’re looking in.

Dive Zombie by Kazuya Noshiro
Attack the zombie before the zombie attacks you! Challenge the high score while you’re at it

Quantum Q-Wave A101 Dual SIM

The 10inch Quantum Q-Wave is an Android tablet from BDL, one of the established IT players in the region. With the Q-Wave, we wanted to see if BDL can match its IT sales and marketing prowess with the kind of innovation that makes a tablet stand out in a tight mobility market.

Design

From the get go, the Q-Wave feels like a solidly-built machine, on the heavy side but not bulky. The unit I had in my possession had silver back with a black strip on the top.
The black strip reveals a panel under which the slots for a dual SIM set up and SD card are located. Oddly, the strip is sealed very tight and you have to literally pry open the panel to get to the compartment. The power and volume button are on the right in landscape mode.
One feature I particularly liked was the thin bezel making sure that the Q-Wave is not as wide as others in its class. Interestingly, Quantum has installed a physical “back” button-which acts like a home button on your smartphone-on the top right of the tablet, a unique feature I haven’t seen on any other tab.

Key Specs

The Q-Wave runs on ARM’s Dual-Core Cortex A9 at 1.2GHz with a 3D graphics engine. We would have loved to see quad-core but unless you are a serious graphics-heavy multi-tasker, a dual-core processor is more than enough.
SIM support in tablets is still something of a novelty

Top 5 Apps for Samsung S3


Google Translate

The latest version of Google Translate offers major new features that put the app on this list. In the old version, I entered text and Google Translate provided the trranslation. With the new version of Google Translate, I can:
  • Type the text, which is the default.
  • Speak the text that I wish to translate. When I stop speaking for just a second, Google Translate outputs the original text and the translated text.
  • Hand write the text, with my finger. Google translate did a good job of translating my sloppy finger writing.
  • Take a picture of a sign. Google Translate sends the picture to their servers for translation.
Both the inputted text and translated text have a speaker icon next to them, for translating the text to speech. There is just one female voice provided, but it is clear and understandable. For the translated text, there are icons to copy the text, share the text, and expand the text to very large print.
The conversation mode takes translation to the next level. With the conversation mode, the input is from the microphone, and Google Translate speaks the translated output. Google Translates also prints the inputted text and translated text on the screen. It is not the fastest way to have a conversation, but it works. Does this remind anyone of the translator on Star Trek?
