You've probably heard of Vito Technology's clever Space Walk, an "augmented stargazing" app. How does it work? Point your iPad 2's camera at the heavens and watch the display: Space Walk identifies celestial bodies, including stars and satellites, over a real-time image of the night sky. But if you'd prefer a guided 3-D tour of our solar system, check out Vito's Solar Walk, a beautiful and educational $3 app that lets you fly from planet to planet using only your finger. Don a pair of cyan-red 3-D glasses, and view the planets in three-dimensional splendor. But wait, there's more: You can wirelessly mirror the Solar Walk screen to an Apple TV (2nd generation), and display the app on a 3-D-ready TV.
