Gentleman, start your engines!  I’m sure we all know what that relates to, but in the future, it could have a new meaning if you have an Apple T.V 2.  A company called Firemint has developed the first game that you can play from your iPad 2 then using Airplay connect with your ATV2.  Oh, but it gets better, the content is not a mirror, what you see on T.V and what displays on your iPad 2 will be different.  In the case of this game, Real Racing 2 HD real-time racing telemetry is displayed on the iPad 2 and true 1080p content is displayed on your T.V.  Simply put, that’s awesome.
You can pick this game up right now and play it for $9.99 and it works with the T.V-out feature, but I would wait for a sale as iOS 5 isn’t slated to be out until later in the year.  I’ll have a post or two up about some of the other updates, additions, and changes of note in iOS 5, but realistically this is going to be a hard one to top.  I can’t wait for other App developers to get in on this, imagine playing Angry Birds via Airplay on  your big screen, all your friends will be jealous!
