Capture Screenshots On WP7 And Send Them Directly To Your PC
We’ve previously covered Screen Capturer, which allows you to save a screenshot on your Windows Phone by pressing the camera button. However, it’s a bit cumbersome to get those screenshots transferred to your PC, since Windows Phone requires the Zune software for synchronization. In order to provide an easier solution to that problem, forum member N37-L0RD has developed WP Screenshot.
It consists of a desktop application, which displays the screenshots, and a phone app in which you have to type in the IP address of your computer (hit start, type “cmd”, enter, and type “ipconfig” in the command prompt to get the IPv4 address). Once you press the “connect and start” button on your phone, half-press the camera button and a screenshot should show up in the desktop app, which you can easily save by pressing CTRL+S.
The only minor issue is that this becomes unusable with the HTC HD2, as it does not have a camera button allowing half-presses. For everyone else, check out the application in the forum thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
