I was hanging out with my son’s boy scout troop and one of the dads showed me an iPhone app that made me finally want to buy an iPhone: a free application called Phone Saber. Yes, the app even has that famous light saber sound effect. My son could not stop talking about it, Star Wars is big in my house of three boys. After we saw it, we tried to imagine some design that would use WiFi to allow the application to keep track of the light sabers making contact.
I am now on the hunt for more iPhone applications, even if they are useless while being extremely cool.
