Great storytelling I’m convinced that great storytelling is crucial to a brand’s viral success. This happened at DSC. Here’s the story (about the story) from Adam Weber, Dollar Shave Club’s CMO. What we’ve really focused in on since our launch video has been all about finding which new stories to tell, to what consumers, and then finding the right distribution platforms to tell them. We take our video storytelling to the obvious places. We do a lot of investment in television, which is a great place to tell a narrative with video.” Here’s more of his explanation: I think in the long term, as you get more into the digital places, the social outlets like YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter — those types of venues are great venues for telling stories via video. Those have become an increasingly larger part of our game plan. They offer a lot of unique capabilities that something like television doesnt offer.

How does it work? Well get to that. First, let’s see where this all began. A Brief History of Where Bots Come From The 1950s The Turing Test In 1950, computer scientist and mathematician Alan Turing developed the Turing Test, also known as the Imitation Game . Its most primitive format required three players -- A, B, and C. Player A was a machine and player B was a human. Player C, also a human, was the interrogator, and would enter questions into a computer. Player C received responses from both Players A and B. The trick was, Player C had to determine which one was human. But there was a problem. At the time, databases were highly limited, and could therefore only store a certain amount of human phrases. That meant that the computer would eventually run out of answers to give Player C, eliminating the challenge and prematurely ending the test.

He was able to reasonably accurately track the movements of not just his arms but his legs too and its all shown more clearly in the movements of a fully-dynamic shadow of his in-game avatar. Unfortunately for consumers, this wouldnt really be possible to achieve, not least because it would require two Vive headsets and four controllers which is a serious expense. According to Bowler, though, replacing the controllers on his feet with the soon-to-be-released trackers could make it more viable for real-world application. Applying a tracker to the mid-section of the body as well as the extremities could offer even more in-depth tracking of movements like crouching. The new Vive trackers are designed to be applied to objects rather than body parts but in the future CloudGate indicated that it might have a plan for tracker-fitted shoes in the works.

Ryan Lambie Jan 23, 2017 Classic 80s beat em up Double Dragon is making a comeback. Here are some new details for the belated sequel... In the 80s, there was only one game that accurately depicted the reality of fighting in tight trousers: the arcade smash hit, Double Dragon. Starring twin martial arts experts Billy and Jimmy Lee, it was a beat 'em up that launched a thousand clones as well as ports to home systems, from the ZX Spectrum to the Game Boy. See related Games nobody talks about anymore: Renegade Double Dragon' s popularity also resulted in more than a few sequels and spin-offs, which continued even after its original developer, Technos, sadly breathed its last in 1996. As well as numbered sequels Double Dragon II: The Revenge and Double Dragon III: The Rosetta Stone, there was also a Super Nintendo-only semi-sequel - called Super Double Dragon, because all games had to have 'Super' added to the title back then - and, confusingly, a fifth game called Double Dragon V: The Shadow Falls, which wasn't even a scrolling brawler.

Having a restricted 4-way or 8-way digital joystick for an arcade game is fine if the joystick is built into a game cabinet that plays only one game 4-way for Pacman and 8-way for Super Cobra. But [Tinker_On_Steroids] wanted a joystick that could be restricted as either 4-way or 8-way for a cabinet that could play a multitude of games, and it had to switch from one type of restriction to the other automatically based on the selected game. His digital joystick already came with a plate that can be mounted for either 4-way or 8-way restriction, but it has to be manually screwed in place for one or the other. He removed it and designed two 3D-printable parts, one that is to be mounted firmly to the bottom of the joystick and the other that rotates within the first one. Rotated in one orientation gives 4-way restriction and in the other orientation gives 8-way.
