TechBits: mobile device stocking stuffers (12.12.12)

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM - AL -

Your mobile device can be used for serious productivity...but it can also be serious fun.

    Desk Pets makes the tiny CarBot.  It's a car remotely controlled from your mobile device.  The car can be driven solo, or played against other users.  The transmitter uses its own power, so it won't run down your battery.

    AppGear uses real game pieces to for its mobile device apps.  In Foam Fighters, you get behind the controls of a plane for flying adventures and dogfights.  A mini foam plane attaches to your device to guide your flights.  In Zombie Burbz, you can use a zombie figure to control a game in which you play the undead fighting off living invaders.  The game can be played without the zombie figure.

    If you just want a little more control over your gaming, try the Fling Joystick.  It's a passive device that attaches to the screen of your iPad to help you get better tactile control of joystick controllers in games.
