As of today Inventor for iPad is available for download on the Apple App Store.
Product testers from various tech magazines gave rave reviews about the product.
Not only does it contain the full functionality of Inventor but more than 100 new cool features were added, including:
- Voice Control: using your voice you can activate commands or set parameter values
- In case of using the App in a public library you can switch to Whisper Mode
- Eye Tracking: you can manipulate objects simply by looking at points on the screen and blinking
- If you download the App today you'll also get a free pack of eye drops
The App also comes with an Objective-C API for 3rd party developers, so extending the App's features should be a piece of cake.
To showcase its power, Kean Walmsley wrote Kinect and Leap Motion integration plug-ins for the App.
They enable you to control the model objects by doing hand gestures in free space.
In case of inappropriate gestures the App terminates immediately and can only be restarted in Sulking Mode.
Further information and direct link to the App and the plug-in's can be found here.
