When Star Trek meets technology you get Treknology, and there are a couple of examples of that to share with you about some new pieces of tech. One is a special fanmade Star Trek-themed promotion for the Google Nexus One (from the futuuuuure). And the other is the inevitable PADD application for Apple’s new iPad.
Well we knew it would happen. TrekMovie has already written about the connection between Apple’s new iPad and Star Trek’s PADD. Now Gizmodo is reporting on an application being developed for the iPad that turns it into a true iPadd. The "Captain’s Log" application uses a Next Gen era LCARS (Library Computer Access and Retrieval System) interface and integrates your social networking, including Twitter and Facebook.
‘Captains Log’ a reason to buy an iPad
Speaking of the iPad and Star Trek, TNG’s Wil Wheaton has blogged about the new iPad, making the case to buy one, pointing to its potential for boardgames. Check it out. And while we are on the subject of Wheaton and games, check out his keynote from the recent PAX gaming convention – on the YouTube.
