Yesterday I bought the iOS programming app Codea and a BlueTooth iPad keyboard. This video shows my first Codea/Lua program, coded and executed on an iPad. I’ve used Lua in the past to code for my PSP, but the experience was nowhere near as slick as using Codea.

What the video doesn’t show is my use of UI sliders to control the movement, size, and colour of the bouncing ball. With a few tweaks (like touch control over the circle) this will already make an interesting game for my 21 month old daughter.
