Fact Magazine reports that a Kickstarted project is now available that brings together album art, djay 2, and touch technology to create an interesting result: the ability to manipulate the iOS-loaded software via physically touching the album cover itself.
The cover in question belongs to DJ Qbert’s new album, Extraterrestria. Using Bluetooth, one can use the interactive art (which looks like turntables) to control Qbert music or other songs on one’s device using the djay 2 app.
We reviewed djay 2 quite a while ago; and it’s currently available for $9.99 on the App Store. Extraterrestria itself will be shipping out to backers first, but some vinyl copies will be available to the masses through Thud Rumble.

Prepare to get political, as Positech Games have brought their political strategy game, Democracy 3, onto the iPad. Democracy 3 allows players to become the ruler of a country, giving them the power to fully control political policies and take the country in any direction they want to. Whilst raising taxes to sort out climate control or legalising the death penalty may sound like good ideas at the time, players will also have to try and please as many of the 21 different voter groups the game’s virtual voters fall into. Annoy them enough and you may get voted out at the next election – if you manage to survive that long, that is.

If there’s one thing you need to know about FTL, it’s that it’s a fantastic game. A very close second thing you really need to know is that it’s about as unforgiving as that one extremely tough grade-school teacher that never gave anyone a break. Don’t play innocent, we’ve all had one.
So, while we here at 148Apps wholeheartedly endorse you rushing to the App Store to purchase FTL for your iPad immediately (seriously, go do it if you haven’t already), we also understand that you may have some trouble starting out. Or just in general. That’s why we’ve put together a list of tips, tricks, and strategies to hopefully keep your ship and your crew functioning that much longer. Due to the random nature of sector layouts, encounters, and shop inventories there’s no way to guarantee success, but we’re certainly going to do our best for you.
