iOS apps for musicians aren’t a new thing, but depending on the instruments they use actually incorporating these apps into their work can be a hassle. That’s where the iRing comes in. These simple-looking rings work in conjunction with the iOS camera’s image recognition technology to allow users to control various music apps – including AmpliTube, SampleTank, and GrooveMaker 2 – using nothing but hand gestures. In other words, if you’ve got your hands full of guitar you won’t have to put it down in order to start fiddling with an iOS app. Developers interested in incorporating iRing features into their products can also swing by the official website to request an SDK and free licensing program.

The iRing will be available worldwide sometime within the first quarter of 2014 for $24.99 – in white, silver, and green – at numerous music and electronics retailers.

Those rascals at ThinkGeek are at it again, today unveiling the iCADE 8-Bitty, a physical controller for use with iOS games. The 8-Bitty sports a traditional d-pad, as well as four face buttons, two shoulder buttons, and start/select. The 8-Bitty is battery powered and connects to any iOS device wirelessly, and can be used to play any game that supports the iCADE API. Tired of tapping the screen to play Super Mega Worm? Well that won’t be a problem much longer.

ThinkGeek has announced that the 8-Bitty will retail for $24.99 and should go on sale sometime later this year. If you happen to be at Toy Fair you can get a look at the 8-Bitty up close and personal, just don’t try and steal it because I’m pretty sure ThinkGeek deploys at least three snipers at such events. If you are going to attempt a snatch and grab then please remember to run in a serpentine pattern.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
An Unofficial GameSalad Textbook is a nice resource to have, but it definitely needs some editing and a redesign to be worth the high price.
