Live Video Blimp controlled by iPad

So what you can do with iPad? Not just surfing the web, watch video, listen to music or play Plants vs Zombies. You can also write your own program and fly Blimp live streaming video from the camera attached to it. No? That’s what guys from BreakfastNY did.

Here’s their comment on it:

This year’s Design Week after-party featured a silent auction of 23 KidRobot Munny characters created by the world’s top industrial designers. To show off these creations to the thousand guests, we flew a 52″ camera-enabled blimp over their heads. The blimp (a modified BlimpDuino) was controlled by an iPad which was receiving the live video-feed from the cockpit. When guests looked up, they watched as their faces were transformed into those of the Munny characters up for auction. The feed also went up on a big screen at the event and the event’s site allowing everyone to get in on the action.

Don’t forget to check out their video and how they party with the flying blimp:

Apple rejected Wireless iPhone Sync which we have seen in video previously, we know that is it not going to be approved.

But nevertheless, it’s developer Greg Hughes turned to Cydia, after being rejected by App Store. Cydia – the jailbreak “app store” where you can find apps that can only be run on Jailbroken iPhones.

You can get the Wifi Sync App in Cydia now for USD$9.99

Hughes told Engadget that an Apple representative told him over the phone that the application was not specifically in violation of the terms of the iPhone OS developer agreement.

While he agreed that the app doesn’t technically break the rules, he said that it does encroach upon the boundaries of what they can and cannot allow on their store,” the developer said. “He also cited security concerns.
