Ironically I was saved from the above post by the postman. He had just delivered a magazine that we never intended getting. Somehow we have been selected to receive this publication - free of charge!! It's called "Brainspace" and it is billed as a periodical for Canadian students, parents and educators - whew heady stuff!!
I didn't have much time so I stopped at page 5 to peruse what was new in trends and gadgets. Here is a list:
1. Strip Designer - an app that lets you make a comic strip from your own personal pictures. If you don't want to use photos you can paint or draw your own images - $2.99 from the iTunes store.
2. Storybird - a free website - www.storybird.com with over 5 million stories published on-line, this apparently is the largest storytelling community. Here is where you get to share your creative tales and images with animators around the world.
3. JamStudio - a place to make your own music - wwwjamstudio.com - for a small fee $4.95 per month.
4. Cube 3D Printer - a 3D printer that allows you to make children's toys!! Anything from dinosaurs to rocketships for a mere $1,299.00US.
5. Cubelets - building blocks with brains. Assemble modular robots with battery blocks, action blocks, sensor blocks and flashlight blocks. These robots perform tricks as they respond to light - $159.00
I think that I have to have Strip Designer and something like a 3-D printer that makes adult toys. Well not those kind of adult toys - but you know kitchen gadgets or garden gadgets or any other type of gadgets!! On second thought maybe I don't need one of these printers - I'm trying to de-clutter!!
Have an amazing day!!
