However, one developer may have found something decent to do with that rear camera. Levity Nolvety has released an app called Invisibility that uses the combination of the rear camera and the iPad 2′s gyroscope to create a cool illusion of invisibility. The 99-cent app can take a picture of a table top and then be used to pan over that same table top, making the tablet appear as if it were invisible.
“The iPad has always promised it is a magical device,” Levity’s David Levitt said in a telephone interview. “Invisibility is delivering on that promise at a whole new level.”
