Father of Games



Nov. 29th was wonderful days for kids 40 years ago, for that day when father of games, Pong. Pong was the 1st successful commercial video games.
Pong was meant to be a training exercise, but it caught the publics’ eye as a game.
Pong was so fun because it reminded people of the real life version, ping pong. The first version of pong was not for home use, but as an arcade game. Then the new version was made for house use.
Sydney broke the record of 120 hours of playing Pong to a new record. Pong made a cameo appearance in the movie Wreck It Rlaph.

You problem thinking why the stars are so far away from earth but nobody really knows. So people will ask why the stars are so far away from earth. Now, thanks to some amazing footage from NASA, you have to wonder no more. We have light from its residents are all shining in the night.

I read Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Spills into the Ocean, By Meera Dolasia on December 2, 2012. Though the lava began to edge toward the ocean on October 29th it was not until November 25th, that it made its first entry into the water.

It took seven miles to reach the ocean. And it took 26 to 27 day to reach the ocean.

It has a plumbing system of more than 60k below the surface

Will patrol cars in 2025 look as cool as they do on the other website. I hope that they do. For the past nine years car dealers have been challenged to show their latest model of cars. Los Angeles has also challenged them to make their own idea of what future cars will look like. They had to envision their idea of what the patrol cars will look like in 2025. It has to be able to protect and serve as well as keep the pollution down in society.. That is the reason i made a review on this story... I think it would be cool..

Scientists have always known that in order to forage for nectar as efficiently as they do, the tiny bumblebee had figured out the perfect solution to what is commonly referred to as 'The Traveling Salesman Problem' - that is figuring out the shortest routes from flower to hive. While this may sound simple it is actually a complex mathematical problem given that there are hundreds of different routes - One that takes even humans with their 'superior' brains seek out the help of computers to solve!
This is pretty cool.

I read the article by Meera Dolasia about Pixar’s iconic lamp. “In 1986, Pixar introduced its pioneering computer animation technique with a short film whose main star was a perky lamp called Luxo Jr.” since then Luxo Jr. has been at the beginning of very Pixar film.
Now students from New Zealand’s Wellington University have made a real life version of the original lamp. The lamp acts like a robot and can do about anything!
“That's because that with the help of some imagination, a webcam, Arduino (a microcontroller that can turn devices into interactive electronic objects) and a rotary sensor to track the user's movement, the trio have transformed an off-the shelf ordinary desk lamp into a fun toy that can sense noises, recognize faces and even, play peek-a-boo!”
This article is one of the best ones yet and I strongly recommend it to movie goers! I hope you find this article interesting and the quotes that I took from the article.

I read the article called Pong- The video game that started it all, turns 40. It was written by Meera Dolasia.
It was about the first video game ever turning 40. The person who created pong had no gaming experience before this. It was meant to be a training exercise assigned to him by Atari’s founders.
The game first started as a coin machine in an arcade and was not available to play at home. In 1974, though Atari released a version for home use. This version of the game was also very popular.
This was a very good article. I didn't know what the first video game was and now I do.

Pixar Lamp in Real Life

I am summarizing an article about the Pixar iconic lamp that was created to be a robotic lamp in real life. This article was posted by Meera Dolasia on December 6, 2012. (In 1986, Pixar introduced its pioneering computer animation technique with a short film whose main star was a lamp called Luxo Jr. The lamp became a fixture in the company’s logo.) Now three students from New Zealand brought this lamp to life.

(The lamp was created by Adam-Ben-Dror, Joss Doggett, and Shanshan Zhou as a project for their Physical Computing class at Wellington University.) (The Pinokio lamp may look like a conventional lighting device but that, is where the resemblance ends.)

The lamp has a webcam, that can turn devices into interactive electronic objects. (It also has a rotary sensor to track the user’s movement, the trio have transformed an off-the shelf ordinary desk lamp into a fun toy.) The lamp can sense noises, recognize faces and even play peek-a-boo. (While the inventors are the first to admit that Pinokio is by no means the most intelligent and self-sustaining entity ever created.)

I read Pixar's Iconic Lamp Comes To Life! In this article 3 new Zealand students decided to bring it to life. "That's because that with the help of some imagination, a webcam, Arduino (a microcontroller that can turn devices into interactive electronic objects) and a rotary sensor to track the user's movement, the trio have transformed an off-the shelf ordinary desk lamp into a fun toy that can sense noises, recognize faces and even, play peek-a-boo!" So basically it's a robot lamp.

I read, "Will 2025 Highway Patrol Cars Be This Cool?". It was a sort of true article about a contest for five automotive vehicle makers around the world who accepted the challenge. The challenge was to make a police car that could go through any terrain course on the highway.

General Motors made one called the "Volt Squad". First, they made three types of vehicles to include in the Squad; a flying motorcycle, an all-electric car, and an all-electric Jeep. These can go through any terrain course.

The goal of the vehicles was to be able to catch bad guys faster and easier in any situation. My very favorite vehicle was the "Human-Drone Pursuit Vehicle." You can get out of the car but it's a drone, so it can be controlled by remote control or can control itself.

Other people would like this article because of the cool information and details in it.
