Girl Power: Game Development Graduate, Rebeccah Cox gets Apple Approval


(PRWEB) August 26, 2013

Media Design School talked to Rebeccah about her journey as a game programming student to indie developer.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in games?

I have always liked maths and have a weakness for logic puzzles. Programming involves a lot of lateral thinking and problem solving, so it suits my way of thinking and working.

How did you discover Media Design School?

I did one year of a bachelor's degree in computer science and found that I only had about four hours of programming a week and the other classes seemed irrelevant. I started at Media Design School the following year and really enjoyed getting to work on code for the majority of the time. Most of the assessments were based on making different games to demonstrate the subject we were working on like physics or AI. This project-based assessment method was what really made me learn the most about game development.

Why did you choose to follow a career in indie games rather than working for a studio?

I like making the whole game from scratch and enjoy art and design as much as programming. This is what led me to indie development, because I didn't want to specialise in any specific area and liked having creative control over projects. However, I also learnt that independent development would be a much harder road and I would definitely not be earning the same money as my peers who went with more traditional jobs. In the end, I decided that the benefits outweighed the drawbacks, and that I was willing to put in the effort to make going indie a success.

How did you decide which platform to develop for?

"I put in a lot of research and eventually decided on iOS because it would be cheaper and easier to make and maintain games. The biggest draw cards were the limited number of devices (and resolutions) and that Apple provides customer support, whereas Android leaves that to the developer. This meant that I would not have to buy a large number of phones and tablets, or hire testing teams and a customer support person to respond to emails. The other factor was that Apple only has one app store, whereas Android has many to choose from, which would require more work when it came to submitting games, and picking stores.

What were the biggest challenges in developing Koi Pond Code Breaker?

It was my first attempt at making an iPhone game, so I encountered a lot of challenges. I was taking a business course, which took away time from the project. I also had a new engine to learn, but I have had to do that before at Media Design School, so it made the process a lot easier. The main hurdle I had to overcome was finishing the game to where I was happy with it, especially since I was working on both the art and code.

What next?

The current goal is to get another three or four games out by the end of the year. In the near future, I am hoping to work on some children's games and interactive stories. I have one lined up that should be out by the end of the year, and will be tested by my old primary school, Aorangi, Rotorua. There is a lot I want to accomplish through games.

Robo-rodent Gets ‘Touchy-Feely’

(PRWEB) November 17, 2005

Robots that 'feel' objects and their texture could soon become a reality thanks to the innovative and interdisciplinary research of the AMouse, or artificial mouse, project.

But even more important, perhaps, are the lessons researchers learned about robot design and artificial intelligence. The project funded by the Future and Emerging Technologies initiative of the IST programme even developed new insights into biological brain function.

Researchers from Italy, Germany and Switzerland developed a 'feeling' robot by developing a new sensor modelled on hypersensitive mouse whiskers. These AMouse researchers developed a large series of different sensors based on a wide variety of 'whisker' types. These new sensors were then added to mainly standard Khepera research robots.

This not only gave the researchers insight into how mouse whiskers do their job, it also enabled them to develop prototypes that can be used to distinguish between different textures or an object.

The team demonstrated a real zest for innovation in their whisker design. One team from the University of Zurich used a variety of materials, from plastic to human hair. This was attached to the condenser plate of a microphone.

As the whisker encountered an object or surface, the whisker deformed the microphone diaphragm in a measurable way, allowing researchers to track characteristic signals from particular surfaces. The researchers then experimented with various whisker arrays and designs, to discover the optimal profile.

Even more exciting, however, were the results from 'multimodal' sensor experiments. These use a combination of vision and touch through whisker and light or camera sensors. The mix of sensory inputs revealed how different data sources affect each other and how they combine to provide a clearer perception of any particular object. Some robots even manifested emergent behaviour.

Emergent behaviour is a primary characteristic of life. In biological systems the combination of various data, like touch and sight, reinforces specific neural pathways. These pathways come to dominate and can cause an entity to 'behave' in a specific way.

In one startling outcome an AMouse robot demonstrated what appeared to be emergent behaviour: it developed a homing instinct without any pre-programming of any kind.

"Essentially we put in the sensors and then wire them up through the robots 'brain', its CPU. We just switch it on without giving it instructions of any kind," says Simon Bovet, a Ph.D. student at the University of Zurich. When he threw the switch his robot started moving about the room but always returned to the spot where it began.

"I think emergent behaviour like this will be a major area in neuroscience and robotics research in the future," says Dr Andreas K. Engel, professor at the University Medical Centre Hamburg and coordinator of the AMouse project.

It will help develop robots that can evolve and it will also teach us much about human cognition. "We can study neural pathways and neural coding in a machine, in a way that's currently impossible in humans. In a robot we can isolate a particular neural pathway to see what happens to other neurons when we trigger a specific one. In humans, if we stimulate one neuron it will influence changes a large number of other neurons, so it's impossible to track what's going on." Engel believes robotic models will offer many exciting insights into human cognition in the future.

"In terms of Neuroscience and Robotics, the US and Japan are the world leaders. But in terms of the combination of the two, Europe is leading, because they fall through a funding gap, just as this research does in Germany."

Engel believes that the study and understanding of emergent behaviour will have an enormous influence in the future.

Orange County Classroom gets Greenovated


Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012

School professionals have long wanted to go green but many required more factual proof and research, showing that the benefits of green schoolsbetter air quality, higher test scores, lower utility bills, etc.were in fact measurable and achievable. The Orange County Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC-OC) along with Irvine-based school design experts, LPA Inc., took action to greenovate, or retrofit, a typical classroom at a local public school. The goal: to create a life-sized model, a green classroom, and test it against a conventional classroom, sans green upgrades, next door. The idea has become a reality at the Davis Magnet School in Costa Mesa, Calif. Design of the greenovation kicked off last November, construction began this July, and completion of the retrofit has come just in time for the inaugural Green Apple Day of Service, on Sept. 29, 2012.

The economic environment that our public schools operate in is challenging, said Wendy Rogers, Chair of the USGBC-OC Green Schools Committee and Design Principal at LPA. As a mother of two, and someone who designs K-12 schools for a living, I understand the challengesand dwindling budgetsour schools are facing. I also know that with 55 million Americans spending six hours a day (or more) in school facilities, we must do a better job creating positive educational environments. Outdated buildings, with little access to daylight, outdated fixtures, and poor ventilation, do little to prepare todays learners for the future.

With the launch of this green classroom experiment, students at Davis Magnet get the opportunity to learn, first-hand, about their school building, how their actions in the classroom affect their environment, and how they can have an impact on their schools bottom lineboth financially and environmentally.

The greenovated classroom has been gutted, insulated, and equipped with high-performance lighting that "harvests" daylight, environmentally friendly flooring and furnishings, wireless submeters (for monitoring utility usage), and a new ventilation system. All paints and finishes have high recyclable contents and low levels of volatile organic compounds. Positioned next to a conventional classroom, the retrofitted space will be used in an experiment that compares energy use between the two rooms. The retrofitted version will serve as an "active environment" where pupils will learn how to measure HVAC loads, monitor utility usage, and understand the importance of simple moves like turning off the lights before leaving an empty room.

Its all very scientific, continues Rogers. The conventional classroom has controls that have been in place since December to establish a baseline of energy use, pre-renovation, so we have the facts and figures of where we started and can see, with numbers, how much the greenovation improves performance.

Rogers said she hopes the classroom retrofit will raise awareness of the value of environmentally friendly classrooms in a county where just eight schools in 38 public school districts are considered green.

For the Green Apple Day of Service, Rogers and other members of the USGBC-OC will join teachers, parents and students to celebrate this noteworthy milestone in the Green Classroom movementthe completion of this classrooms retrofit and beginning of the social experiment to come. From 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 29, 2012, guests will gather at the Davis Magnet School for tours, green apples, and lemonade.

The greenovation has been funded through in-kind donations from a slew of private companiesat zero cost to the Davis Magnet School. LPA committed the time of a dozen school designers, along with financial support, to see this project come to fruition. The company has a long history of promoting greener, healthier buildings in Southern Californiahaving completed its first green building in the 1980sand having designed more than 100 K-12 schools. Other donors involved with the project include: Disney, McCarthy Building Companies, and Sunbelt Controls. For a full list of sponsors, please visit Davis Magnet School Greenovate.

iPhone App Daily Commute Gets Feature Updates Designed to Get Commuters to Work On Time with Less Stress


Greenville, SC (PRWEB) August 31, 2012

With the latest release of the commute iPhone app, Daily Commute, users now have new features and functionality to assist them in their travels. One key feature in this update is a new Tips feed. This feed is regularly updated with commute related tips and tricks from the original creators of the app.

Providing users with helpful information, co-creator Dr. Benton Cofer posted, Few situations invoke panic and anxiety quite so quickly as oversleeping! I was reminded of this just this morning. A minor malfunction in my snooze function resulted in my over sleeping by about 30 minutes. What a way to start the day! What to do? After springing from my bed, I immediately opened Daily Commute on my iPhone, and pulled up my countdown timer. To my immediate relief, I found that I had ~ 50 minutes before I needed to leave the house. Whew! No problem.

Giving commuters the tools and tips needed to be more productive, the user gets more out of life. The average American spends 25 minutes on their daily commute to work (one way), and there is an epidemic of stress related illness. If you are commuting, you are not spending quality time with your loved ones. You are not exercising, doing challenging work, having sex, petting your dog, or playing with your kids (or your Wii). You are not doing any of the things that make human beings happy. Instead, you are getting nauseous on a bus, jostled on a train, or cut off in traffic, says Annie Lowrey writing in Slate.com.

The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute has an easy to use interface allowing the technology to work for you. The app starts by prompting the user to input a name for the commute destination and desired arrival time. The user then starts the app upon leaving for work and stops it upon arrival. The app logs this data and the following day, uses this travel time to calculate a target time to leave for work. The touch of a button will bring up a full screen countdown timer. The background of the timer changes from green to orange and then from orange to red as the target time approaches.The user then repeats the process daily. As the app compiles data, it will then average this data to give a more accurate prediction. The app bases the user's predicted commute time on the best available data, so the more it is used the more accurate it becomes.The end result is a more consistent arrival time at work.

The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute also allows the user to input notes for each individual commute for later review. Trends in commute time can be analyzed in graphical readout as well as in tabulated form. Never before has the average commuter had the ability to easily generate usable data regarding commute time. Never before has there been an app that will use such data to make commuting more predictable and less stressful.

The app is currently available to download from the apple app store. The free version contains ads and limits the number of unique commute destinations to one. The commute iPhone app, Daily Commute may be upgraded by the user to the Pro version for 99 cents. The Pro version of the Commute eliminates ads and allows unlimited entry of unique commute destinations.

Michigan Car Accident Lawyer Gets Largest Overall Settlement, Largest Auto Negligence Verdict in State

Southfield, MI (PRWEB) January 21, 2009

The auto accident lawyers of Southfield-based Michigan Auto Law are proud to announce that partner Steven M. Gursten has gotten the largest settlement and the largest auto negligence verdict in the entire state of Michigan for 2008, according to a year-end verdicts and settlements report by Michigan Lawyers Weekly.

In addition to achieving some of the highest car and truck accident settlements each year for injury victims in Michigan, Steve Gursten has received the largest jury verdict in four of the past seven years. He also has received the largest pain and suffering settlement in Michigan in more than a decade.

Lawyers Weekly stated about Gursten's successful record, "considering the fact that there are approximately 4,000 Michigan attorneys who say they handle personal injury cases as part of their practice, the odds of accomplishing this feat are astronomical."

Additionally, law firm partner David Christensen garnered the ninth biggest settlement in Michigan last year. Here are our personal injury lawyers' top 2008 verdicts and settlements:

No. 1 Michigan settlement: $ 3.9 million (Case 07-719459-NI)

Estate of Patrick G. Nunez v. Utica Transit Mix and Supply, Co. Inc. and Charles L. Dreyer

Plaintiff Patrick Nunez was traveling in the fast lane on I-75 in Detroit, Michigan when a trucker driving a fully-loaded, 150,000 pound gravel truck lost control and collided with Nunez' car. The car was smashed against the highway retainer wall, where it burst into flames, killing Nunez.

The truck lost control when its front-steer tire blew. But trucks are not supposed to dangerously lose control when they experience a tire blow-out, which is a foreseeable and common event. The defendant lost control because his truck was in defective and dangerous out-of-service mechanical condition. The driver admitted in a deposition that he had received no formal training or supervision from his employer. He also said he failed to inspect the truck's tires and brakes. Furthermore, he had a seizure disorder and was on powerful epilepsy medication that causes drowsiness and delayed reaction time.

Because of the Michigan truck driver's negligence, the case settled for $ 3.9 million.

No. 9 Michigan settlement: $ 1.6 million

Donald Weller, et al., v. J.T. Express, et al. (Case 06-620 NI)

The plaintiff truck driver Donald Weller was rear-ended by another semi-trailer truck at an intersection in Romeo, Michigan. He was treated for neck and back complaints in the emergency room and had physical therapy.

Seven weeks later, the plaintiff noticed weakness and numbness in his left arm and leg. A discectomy with fusion was performed after a disc was found to be compressing the spinal cord. His left-sided weaknesses never diminished, and symptoms were stroke-like. The man had suffered a stroke nearly six years before the accident, but he recovered completely.

Through case facilitation, a $ 1.6 million settlement was reached.

No. 2 Michigan verdict: $ 5.65 million (Case 07-937-NI)

Broeren, et al., v. Bates

Plaintiff Anthony Broeren was seriously injured after a friend accidentally ran him over with a Dodge Ram pickup truck and propelled him head-first into a log cabin. Doctors say Broeren -- who suffered crushing injuries to his leg that have required many surgeries and a traumatic brain injury for starters -- will never be able to return to competitive employment. He also suffers tinnitus, vertigo, side effects from various pain pills and weight gain. Prior to the accident, he was an engineer.

Broeren sued Roy Bates II of Chesterfield Township, Michigan. Chrysler owned the Dodge Ram pickup truck, and Bates was employed with Chrysler when he accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake and struck Broeren during a group hunting trip in Evart, Michigan. Although the verdict was issued against Bates because Chrysler had been removed as a named defendant in the case, Chrysler remains financially responsible for the award.

The jury deliberated for three hours before deciding to allot $ 5.65 million, broken down into $ 2.75 million for pain and suffering, $ 1.88 million for economic damages and $ 1.02 million for loss of consortium.

The personal injury lawyers of Michigan Auto Law have been successfully protecting auto accident victims for more than 50 years. Our law firm is the largest in Michigan that practices exclusively in car and truck accidents. Our greatest satisfaction is obtaining justice to our clients who have been seriously injured or killed in auto accidents, and have been wronged by insurance companies. We realize that lawyers must bring lawsuits to obtain justice for these people, because it's only the threat of litigation that will force some insurance companies, large trucking companies and corporations to do the right thing.

CloneMyWebsite Gets Savvy with Their Intuitive WordPress Theme Generator


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 11, 2012

WordPress continues to become the most trusted content management system for business websites but very few people realize the importance of having the right theme design for your business. Using a custom WordPress theme generator gives any business owner that ability of making their website rely on the best business WordPress themes. Its ability to generate more than 1000 themes and have some more being generated every day makes it an important tool for your website. You can play around with more than 50 fonts, have unlimited places for widgets, make fine frameworks and save your themes to be used later. WordPress has therefore managed to move your website's interphase to a completely new level. What more would your internet business require apart from consistent updates?

It is time consuming to fine tune a setting for SEO or direct response marketing when you are using a generic WordPress theme. clonemywebsite.com

A differentiation fact for customers when they interact with businesses online is the degree of functionality that the websites provide, based on the products that they offer. On the other hand, business owners also need to merge their organizational cultures and identity on their websites, because this serves as the first outlet of customer interaction. Therefore, getting the best business WordPress theme is an essential point of customer care, whether the customer is a buys or only spreads word about the business.

There are many WordPress themes available for free, or with a little customization being offered for sale. However, rarely does one get the most fitting theme for their business, because there are always unique attributes with every website design. It is impossible for companies that sell themes to many people, to have the exact needs of every kind of business. Nevertheless, they do offer a range of spectacular themes that have the advantages of security, scalability and functionality.

On their part, WordPress theme generators are solving the headache that many website owners and designers had, when it came to choosing the best themes. The theme generator does not require the technical ability of dealing with design coding languages and anyone conversant enough to use computer software is able to create attractive-looking themes with the generator. It costs money to maintain WordPress themes that developed by external designers because one has to rely on them for every change desired on their layout or functionality. The money spend on paying for maintenance or design services is saved if you choose a WordPress theme generator because, you can create as many search engine optimized themes as you require. For business that have a tight budget, a free theme generator may suffice, but it will have limited functionality compared to commercial theme generators, whose developers will keep addition features to make them even easier to use and increase their capabilities.

You can now have a professional WordPress site in minutes, complete with SEO capabilities and ready for deployment. The sites created by the theme generator will enable your business to start making you money since they enable people to have a new idea or a product launch within an hour when traditionally it would take days.

For people looking for the best business WordPress themes, the WordPress theme generator has no match, as it is the only tool that will give them the theme without the lock-ins that force them to purchase an upgrade or a lifetime maintenance subscription.
