Technology modifiers are in a league of their own. I got this via osXdaily where you can find the complete instructions for changing an old MacIntosh Classic into an iPad dock. The only problem I can see is the peripheral buttons are hidden. It looks fun though and the truth is, it would challenge you to find ways of using it without resorting to the home , camera or sound buttons. it forces you to think laterally. There is a Japanese how to video on the site so that you get a really professional finish.
3Defy is a flash site which uses GPU acceleration similar to Vista or Apple’s OSX so the quality of the 3D graphics isn’t bad at all. You can take a 2D photo and turn it into a 3D wonder. There is plenty of help and support on the site for mastering the techniques if you want to improve on what you have done. There are also plenty of YouTube videos to help you as well. The effects are really quite good. The site is divided into channels so you can look at the science or art images, so even if you don’t want to make your own 3D images, you can appreciate the work of others.
