New Year Toast on Your iPhone or iPad
Toast the new year with a virtual glass of booze
IKEA has released a toasting app just in time for New Year's Eve. Even though it's already 2011 you can always raise you "glass" with friends and family. Pick from the huge range of glasses and drinks, and enjoy a virtual toast! The app, which is called Skål!, or "Cheers!" in English, has a neat trick up its sleeve: it uses the rear-facing camera to create a backdrop for your virtual drink.
Then, as you drink from your iPhone (or iPad, or iPod touch), the drink, its contents and the background rotate to complete the illusion. You can even save a copy of the scene, if you're the kind of person that likes to keep mementos.
