Angry Birds maker Rovio long boasted about its ambitions to become the next Disney, and now that goal has kinda-sorta come to fruition: The Angry Birds Movie is playing on thousands of screens around the globe.Strategy is minimally important; in fact, the game constantly suggests matches, making it tough to consider your own pairings.And when it released in 2014, that caused some well-earned franchise fatigue.Now you can use your birds in whichever order you d like, plus you ll typically complete three or four different areas in each level—which expands the size of the game, but also is punishing if you lose on the last part.And while the original focus on holidays and seasons remains mostly intact, the game has taken amusing deviations as well—like the NBA-themed update.Shifting to outer space means playing with gravitational pull, letting you use the fields around planets to slingshot you into birds and asteroids, or send objects crashing down.

The documents released by the Center for International Environmental Law CIEL revealed that many oil companies, including the precursors to ExxonMobil, had filed patents for technologies that would explore alternate fuel sources and electric cars as early as the 1960s.A committee was formed to face the challenges, including fueling research into the effects of fossil fuels in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, and lasted for two decades.Throughout the 1960s and into the 1970s, scientists from companies such as Esso, along with Shell, the Phillips Petroleum Company and Chevron worked to explore technologies that could help curb this threat.This not only included looking into ways to minimise air pollutants with vehicles, but also looking into new Arctic drilling technologies and manipulating the weather.According to CIEL, however, the API issued a response to the Robinson Report in 1969 that was more sceptical on the findings.In 1967, the organisation told Congress, according to the Guardian: We take exception to the basic assumption that clean air can be achieved only by finding an alternative to the internal combustion engine.

Aston Martin, the UK's luxury sports car maker, and Zagato, the prestigious Italian design house, have teamed up once again to create another gorgeous concept car, and, like in the years before, they don't disappoint.As the fifth collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato, this new concept is based on the former's Vanquish V12, which features six-liter, 569-horsepower engine, but this version has been bumped up to 592hp."It represents the essence of an important design relationship that dates back over 50 years," says Andrea Zagato.While clearly labeled a concept, there's a decent chance the Vanquish Zagato will see a limited production run.Aston Martin and Zagato's last collaboration, 2011's V12 Zagato, based on the Vantage, saw 150 units produced after that model left people similarly stunned.VIA Top Gear

The short version: Nintendo will soon involve a supervisory committee in making top-level executive decisions.Meanwhile, a Nintendo-themed restaurant seems like a simple-enough expansion for a company that already operates physical businesses such as the Nintendo Store—though, clearly, we'd love to see an official Nintendo diner—and a pun-filled menu.The choice of adding "computer software" to that list, on the other hand, seems particularly curious—especially since Nintendo's existing list of engaged businesses includes terms that sound very much like computer software, particularly the broad term of "contents such as games, images, and music."Is Nintendo planning to create and sell a phone-like system loaded with productivity apps?Rumors continue to swirl about what shape the Nintendo NX will eventually take, including statements from Nintendo executives indicating that the NX will serve as a successor to neither the Wii U nor the 3DS.Also worth noting: Nintendo's current engaged businesses include relatively dormant entries such as "office equipment and tools" and "sporting equipment," presumably from the Japanese company's hundred-plus years of existence along with its genesis as a playing-cards company .

Vibrates the left shoe is the time to take to the left and when the signal is coming from right shoe knows that the direction is the right way. When the programmed target is reached is signaled by the three vibration in order. The programming of the route is done via a GPS-equipped mobile and signaling between the mobile and the shoe is handled by Bluetooth. So far the shoes, which dubbed Sneakairs, just as a prototype that has been tested by Wired whose reporter is clearly pleased with the functionality.
