BlackBerry PlayBook may be able to run Android apps, thanks to Dalvik

When RIM acquired QNX, it was all but certain that the days of Java-powered BlackBerry OSes were drawing to a close. That doesn't mean RIM plans on ditching support for all those legacy BlackBerry apps developed for use in the enterprise, however. Boy Genius Report has received information that RIM intends to support those apps by way of a virtual machine -- and what better Java VM to use than Google's Dalvik (which drives Android)?

In theory, a Dalvik VM running on a BlackBerry device could be capable of running an Android .APK. However, since most apps are closely tied to OS-specific APIs, there's also a very good chance that most Android apps wouldn't do anything noteworthy on future RIM devices. Still, the possibility is an exciting one -- and the ability to handle Android apps would definitely make BlackBerry a bit more enticing to both developers and users.

AppToyz Gun Accessory for iPhone: Video Game System Rite of Passage

Video game systems usually get a barrage of third-party accessories – some of them useful and some of them just plain stupid. Gun-shaped add-ons are a staple of a lot of consoles. So is this the validation that the iPhone and the iPod Touch have been waiting for? The App Gun from AppToyz is a gun-shaped receptacle for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s a mechanical device, so it doesn’t use any batteries. When you pull the gun’s trigger it moves two rubber feet that tap on the touchscreen of the iPhone or iPod Touch. The accessory comes with an augmented reality game, which lets you fire away at digital enemies with the real world as your battlefield. Here’s a video of the App Gun in action: The App Gun will be available this summer, and will likely sell for $30 (USD) or less. A gun accessory for the iPhone. Who would’ve thought? AppToyz folks, if you’re reading this, I have two suggestions: 1. Make a bazooka accessory for the iPad. 2. Make a laser tag app. You already have the …

Microsoft Surface Wrests Control of AR.Drone From iOS Devices

The Parrot AR.Drone quadricopter has one of the most expensive remote controls for a toy – iPod Touches, iPhones or iPads. But a French tech company has upped the ante, utilizing the Microsoft Surface as a remote for the drone. The funny thing is, the pricier remote is also more impractical since it’s not portable, so you can’t follow the AR.Drone around. But it does look fun to use.
The program devised by the R&D department of WinWise Tech is very user-friendly, especially due to the size of the virtual buttons. There are controls for the altitude, rotation and cameras of the AR.Drone, and a big red stop button. The app also has an altimeter and battery meter.
To be honest, I was as surprised by the amount of noise that the quadricopter makes as by the novelty of the hack. \

Presentations Get Even More Interactive With SlideShare’s New JavaScript API

SlideShare, the YouTube of slideshows, is firmly entrenched as the place to go for presentations. Its embedded player is also highly visible across web sites. Compared to Audio and Video, presentations fall somewhere in between and one wondered if there was a way that developers could mix them all up. With the SlideShare Player API, the company has given developers a tool that could bring about some exciting new applications.

Slideshare announced its Javascript API which provides access to major functions, navigating through presentations and controlling the Embed Player via Javascript. Think of simple JavaScript functions to jump to a particular slide, go to first/last slides, move to next and previous slides and so on. The API documentation is basic but sufficient since it deals only with controlling the player. There is also a demo application and sample code that you can start off with.
The blog post also presents a couple of interesting possibilities with the API:
