The Cool KOLOS Gaming Wheel for Apple iPad

The Apple iPad has always been a special gadget with its HD graphics. It is indeed a perfect tablet for gaming geeks who love playing from any place like a bus, train on the move or even while at home. The gaming experience for Apple lovers has just got better with the new Kolos Gaming Wheel designed for racing fanatics.

 

A befitting design for iPad series 

Custom-made for the 9.7-inch Apple iPad, the Kolos steering wheel is designed to fit Apple iPad 2 (2nd Generation) and Apple The new iPad (3rd Generation). It also fits the Apple iPad with Retina Display (4th Generation). Available in black and grey colours, the 12.3-inch diameter wheel is made out of a light weight, high quality, metallised plastic.

The clamp of the wheel is constructed out of Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) which is lightweight and has great strength. The base of the wheel system is curved and symmetric to the wheel itself. To enhance the stability of the wheel, there are three rubberised large circles for support. It has an anti-perspiration coating to ensure that your hands do not slip off in all the adrenaline-pumped action.

 

A gripping hold at the start line 

It is quite easy to fit the wheel with the iPad. You have to place your iPad in the space provided and pull the clip down on it to lock it in place. The gadget will be locked in tight grips and will remain stable and steady throughout the game. It is designed to accommodate a double or single-handed action, so you can try to swerve on a free virtual driveway packed with action.

 

Transform your desk into a driving seat 

The wheel has a clamping system that can be used to attach to desks. The clamp can be attached to surfaces that are as thick as two inches. You can take it, slip in through your study desk and turn the screw at the bottom to tighten the grip.

 

Gaming taken to a new dimension

Since the wheel holds the iPad, you can play all one-finger touch games without having to hold it. Moreover, the wheel is detachable. So, you can have fun with air gaming anywhere with the easy and compact design. The best part is the Kolos wheel is not just for racing, it can be used for playing any touch game or motion sensor air game on the iPad.

 

iOS games for KOLOS play

A few examples of racing games enhanced by KOLOS are Asphalt 7: Heat, Highway Rider, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, Riptide GP, Carmageddon, etc. Apart from racing, action and air games like Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy, MetalStorm: Wingman, Boost 2, etc., can also be played on the iPad attached to the KOLOS wheel. One-finger touch games like Fruit Ninja HD, Angry Birds Space HD, Facebook games, etc., can be played hands-free using KOLOS wheel base system to hold the iPad.

Are PCs on the Way out?

With the increasing popularity of tablets, e-readers, Smartphones, and other portable devices, many in the computer industry are predicting that the desktop-bound personal computer will slowly slip into obsolescence. Of course, the PC’s demise has been predicted since at least 1999, and they’re still common in both businesses and home offices. Yet there’s no denying that desktop computers and, to a lesser extent, laptop sales are slumping while tablet and Smartphone sales soar.

The Mobility Issue

The main force driving this trend is mobility. If you’re shopping for Ford Mustang parts, you can’t lug your desktop PC down to the store to compare local prices with online stores. Even a laptop is too cumbersome to carry everywhere.

Ah, but portable devices. Stick your Smartphone in your pocket or a tablet in a bag and you’re ready to go. Connectivity through Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G has become so ubiquitous that most people assume they can access the Internet from anywhere. In most cases, they’re right to make that assumption. Certainly younger users want devices that go wherever they do.
Will PCs Survive?

Proponents of the PC argue that desktop computers have greater processing power, larger monitors, and greater storage options than portable devices, but with every year these arguments lose ground. Cloud storage and anywhere-you-want-it Internet connectivity has made a device’s internal storage less important, and advances in storage technology mean even a mid-line Smartphone can store several gigabytes of information.

As for processing power, yes, in this area the PC still reigns supreme. But again, how important is processing power going to be in the future? Cloud-powered devices could make a device’s processing power unimportant. By the time you get to the larger monitor argument you detect an air of desperation to the pro-PC argument. Any portable device worth its salt can connect to a HDTV or computer monitor.

Steve Jobs on the PC

Steve Jobs, who had a pretty good track record when it came to predicting how people use technology, didn’t think that the PC would go extinct. Instead, he speculated that the PCs of the future would be “like trucks.” While necessary for large scale transportation, few people need to own their own truck. Jobs felt the same would be true for the desktop computer: while important for specific tasks, most people will be better served by smaller, more portable, and versatile devices. These are strong thoughts coming from the man who helped to popularize the notion of the personal computer in the first place.

So no, the desktop PC is not yet dead, nor is it likely to fade away anytime soon. But just as candles gave way to gas lighting, and gas to the light bulb, so too are PCs slowly giving way to portable devices. Eventually those new devices will be replaced by something else. There may come a time when carrying a Smartphone to check the price of Mustang accessories sounds as ludicrous and unwieldy as carrying a PC does today.
