Often the enjoyment of a creative work can be enhanced by location, and we’ve seen this demonstrated before with the Bluebrain app, which reveals audio content specific to the area the listener is walking through. Now a similar innovation, this time in the publishing world, comes in the form of a new iPad novel titled The Silent History, which presents readers with short excerpts each day and offers additional content when they travel to specific real-world locations.

NightTag is the world’s first social music app, designed to help people capture their nightlife experience in one place. It combines images of the night, with the music that is being listened to, in the place where it is playing – and posts it all onto a user’s Facebook Timeline.
NightTag allows users to take a photo, while its music-recognition software identifies the song playing and the smartphone’s GPS pinpoints the location. NightTag then posts all three elements onto the user’s Facebook Timeline in one, cohesive NightTag photo post.
iOS Augmented Reality game where red pixel bacteria feed on edges, and is based on a scientific discovery from playing an Atari game:
PikselBacteria is an augmented reality game for iPhone/iPad. It focuses on the bacterium pikselum. The bacterium was discovered in 1985 in the USSR by the scientist Lars Rodkov. He first thought he found a glitch in a bootleg of river raid (an atari 2600 game). But then he discovered, that it was a bacterium living in displays. PikselBacteria are feeding on pixel-edges. They are very rare. Therefore Rodkov developed an attractor to approach and cultivate these bacteria.
Based on his research, And-or developed a game in which you may grow these short-lived bacteria with your camera.
You breed the short-lived bacteria with your camera. Give them food by taking them to an edge and start moving the camera along this edge - and the bacteria will breed instantly and take you to the edge.
Gain research points in growing the bacteria as long as you can! Your highscore shows that you are an avid researcher and observer. Press the icon in the lower right corner of the display and send a picture of the sighted bacteria to the website! Or store it in your photo album for proof.
More information, and links to download the free game, can be found on the project’s website here

The Svpply iPhone app is here!
We know a lot of you have been waiting for this, so we’re excited to announce that our new Svpply iPhone app is available for download in the App store.
This is a really lovely piece of work, designed (I believe) by Allan Yu. A lot of thought has gone into the interactions and UI for this, and it’s one of the most refreshing apps I’ve used in a while. If you’re using Svpply at all (even if only occasionally, like myself) you’d be doing yourself a service by installing the free app.
Proteus Biomedical has received CE Mark approval from the European Union to bring to market the firm’s Raisin ingestible drug sensors and monitoring system. When a patient swallows tablets that have individually tagged beacons on them, a sensor can automatically record the precise time and basic vital signs of the patient at that time. The system allows physicians to get a better picture of how a patient responds to a given medication.
