I was just reading this on Engadget and a thought occurred to me. I wonder what Autodesk has in store for the iPad.
Last year they released Sketchbook Mobile. Wouldn't it be cool if you could work with a Revit model on the iPad. What if you could take it onto a jobsite with GPS awareness. You could actually be standing in a room making a sketch in your Revit model.....Ok, maybe this is something for Revit 2020, but at least you saw the concept here first.
We already knew that the iPad would be getting a few pieces of software that haven't shown up on its tinier, phone counterpart -- but now that a few screenshots of forthcoming apps for the device have reared their head, we're getting a clearer picture of just what this thing will feel like. If these shots of the new Yahoo! Entertainment, Bento, OmniGraffle, and Brushes are any indication, the iPad will be doing a lot more than just zooming up your Facebook profile. There's definitely an emphasis on content creation, file exporting (if not saving), and syncing with desktop versions of some of these apps, and Yahoo!'s work (alongside Brushes') shows that we've only begun to scratch the surface of what interfaces will be like on this device. We're sure the next week will be filled with all sorts of these kinds of leaks, but for now you can cherish the moment when you first laid eyes on your new way to check a TV schedule. A few more shots after the break, and lots more at the sources.
