Edible Ink: Print, Flavor, and Eat

Be hip, be posh, hang out at the avant-garde, and eat some paper. Heck, eat your menu if you’d like.

Straight from the crew at Appropriate Audiences, the iPad cover/keyboard known as INKO uses electric ink to create a unique approach to tapping out sentences. This piece of equipment functions as a cover for the iPad as well as a full-functioning keyboard and is made primarily of leather.

There is even a possibility of MCU characters coming into Sony Picture's films.

Paper goes free as FiftyThree pushes Pencil for iPad art

Popular iPad art app Paper is dropping its in-app purchases and making all its add-on tools free, in the hope that sales of its Pencil stylus make up any shortfall along the way. Paper, which was Apple's iPad app of the year back in 2012, previously charged $0.99 apiece for each of the Sketch, Outline, Write, Color, and Mixer tools that could be added to the default Draw tools, but now each can be downloaded free as soon as you open the app. In return, app maker FiftyThree is focusing on its Pencil stylus, which although resembling a simple slip of wood or metal, actually contains some significant wireless smarts.
