If you?re the sort of person who?s really concerned about what?s in their food, i.e. is it organic, or what?s in the air because of your allergies, then you might be interested to know that an accessory for your iPhone could tell you all of that. Dubbed the Lapka Environmental Monitor, it allows iPhone users to attach four different measuring instruments to their device and along with an accompanying app, they will be able to measure things like radiation, electromagnetic feedback, nitrates in raw foods, along with temperature and humidity. Seems like a lot of features for a seemingly unassuming device. No word on how all of this is expected to be accomplished, but according to its website, the Lapka Environmental Monitor is set for a release late 2012, so if this sounds like an accessory you wouldn?t mind getting your hands on, you can head on over to its website and leave your email address, or check back with us in the future for more updates!By Ubergizmo.

We?ve seen some pretty retro looking cases for the iPad and the iPhone before, so if you?re a fan of those cases/designs, then this iPad casing by ThinkGeek might be worth checking out and adding to your collection. Dubbed the Padintosh Case for iPad, the case resembles that of the original 1984 Macintosh computer, along with the MacPaint software being used to draw the word ?hello? on the screen. It looks surprisingly detailed and a great way to see how far Apple has come along (from the Macintosh to the iPad). The Padintosh Case will not only protect the back of your iPad, but will supposedly play nice with the Smart Cover as well, allowing users to protect not just the back of their tablet, but the front as well. If you?re interested in picking up the Padintosh Case for yourself, you can head on over to ThinkGeek and order one for $24.99. So, any takers?By Ubergizmo.

Ever wanted to visit the various museums and art galleries around the world but can?t afford to? Well thanks to Double Robotics, they have designed a robot that come with a self-balance stand that is capable of holding an iPad. This is used in conjunction with a second iPad that doubles up as a controller, allowing the user to remotely control the device. According to Double Robotics, some uses of the robot includes teleconferencing at the office where teams might be split up in various locations, or school campuses where the Double can walk the halls allowing students to talk to professors without having to go their offices.
It has even been suggested that it can be used in hospitals whereby doctors can ?visit? their patients virtually to check on them and see how they are doing. We doubt the iPad?s front facing camera will be good enough to perform surgeries, but it will no doubt come in handy at hospitals in remote locations. If you?re interested in owning one for yourself, the Double is priced at $1,999 (RRP $2,499) and is expected to start shipping in December 2012. More details can be found on its website.By Ubergizmo.

According to Nintendo, their upcoming Wii U console is expected to see a release later this year. Unfortunately details which many gamers are looking for, such as pricing and availability, remain a mystery at this point in time. Some are speculating a November release but thanks to the sources at computerandvideogames.com, it seems that Nintendo might be having some issues with the GamePad controller and that it is taking longer than expected to manufacture. That being said, it seems like for those living in the European region, the Wii U could be delayed for you guys.
Instead of seeing a speculated mid-November release, the console could be released in December. Due to the difficulties of manufacturing the GamePad controller, CVG?s sources are saying that there might be enough units for some territories, while other regions will see shipping times slip by a few weeks. However with a specific release date having yet to be announced by Nintendo, we guess it?s hard to be bummed out by a rumored delay since we don?t even know when it will ship in the first place, but if you were banking on a November release, you could be disappointed. Either way we suggest you take this with a grain of salt for now, and be sure to check back with us in the future for more updates.By Ubergizmo.

Verizon subscribers, if you?re a bit annoyed that the Samsung Galaxy Note was not launched on your carrier?s network, don?t feel bad as Samsung might have something in store for you guys. In a response to a Facebook comment about how the Galaxy Note was not on Verizon, Samsung Mobile USA responded by saying that they did not have any announcements to make just yet, and to check back later when they have more info. If Samsung did not have any plans to launch the Galaxy Note on Verizon in the first place, we would assume that they would have responded by saying something along the lines of how they have no plans for the Galaxy Note on Verizon just yet and etc.
This has led to some speculating that either the person managing Samsung?s Facebook page made a poor choice of wording, or if Samsung really does have plans to launch the Galaxy Note on Verizon. However given that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected to be announced on the 29th of August, it would not be a stretch of the imagination to think that Verizon customers could be greeted with the Galaxy Note 2 instead. Either way this is merely speculation at this point in time, but be sure to check back with us in the future for the details!By Ubergizmo.

While Blizzard?s MMORPG World of Warcraft might be seeing a decline in subscribers, we?re sure that there are still plenty of players out there who are eagerly anticipating the upcoming expansion, Mists of Pandaria. Well the good news for gamers is that if you can?t wait for the release, Blizzard has decided to tease us (or whet our appetite, depending on how you look at it) by releasing two previews for the game. This includes the Pandaren customization page that lets you play with various hair styles, skin colors, facial expressions, facial hair (for male characters) and earrings (for female characters) for your new Pandaren character.
Blizzard has also given players a sneak peek at one of the raids that players will be able to access, the Mogu?shan Vaults. This includes screenshots, a map of the raid along with some of the mobs and the bosses and their abilities, allowing raids to plan how to handle it once the game is live. Based on what we?ve seen so far, the expansion is shaping up pretty nicely and players can expect to get their hands on it come September 25th.By Ubergizmo.
