Android users will finally get to try out Temple Run as the release of the game has been confirmed on March 27. The game will also be a free download.
Here is what Co-founder Keith Sheperd had to say:
"We are excited to finally share the Android release date with our fans who have been so enthusiastic and supportive of Temple Run. By expanding to more mobile devices, we hope to provide the same addictive and fast-paced gameplay to an entirely new group of players."
"A complete from scratch recreation of Super Mario Bros. with a focus on perfectly imitating the feel the 1985 classic gave us. Then give Mario a portal gun, add puzzle game mechanics from Portal and there you go. And if that wasn't crazy enough, play 4-player coop, with everyone having their own Portal gun!"
"Scroll to see the ocean's deepest depths."
To make Angry Birds a real sport, Mbed made a USB slingshot to play Angry Birds. The slingshot emulates a USB mouse, so it really is a plug 'n' play. It translates the physical use of the slingshot in to appropriate mouse controls. The way the controller works is reasonably simple: a stretch sensor translates the drawing of the slingshot to a mouse movement and an accelerometer determines the angle. Check out the video of it in action.
"The Japanese Wrist-Mounted Finger Piano has three volume levels and three sound banks. It's the sound banks that really make this special. Sure you can play piano (sound 1) or bells (sound 2), but what sets the Japanese Wrist-Mounted Finger Piano apart from all other instruments (and makes it wonderfully Japanese) is sound 3: cat. That's right, you can play a full scale (and chords, thanks to the polyphonic nature of this instrument) of cat. "
"The photos were taken by Big Addict (aka Roudet Benjamin) and convey an overwhelming feeling of duality. Half of the hotel room was painted in white, with a few framed canvases that seem to balance the graffiti side of the room. Painted over the walls, mirror, bed, ceiling and floors, vividly colored bombs, tags and throw-ups stop right in the middle of the room, where the boring, white half begins."
It took more than 200 astronauts from 12 countries more than a dozen years to build the International Space Station (ISS). Satoshi Furukawa, an astronaut from Japan, matched that feat in just about two hours — and he did it all while aboard the orbiting outpost itself.
"This automatic cupcake machine dispenses freshly baked cupcakes, cupcake mixes, apparel and even cupcakes for Fido! In the heart of Beverly Hills nestled between Sprinkles Cupcakes and the brand new Sprinkles Ice Cream, 24 Hour Sprinkles will be continuously restocked day and night with a variety of freshly baked cupcake flavors."
The quadrotors play this "couch guitar" by flying over guitar strings stretched across a couch frame; plucking the strings with a stiff wire attached to the base of the quadrotor. A special microphone attached to the frame records the notes made by the "couch guitar". These flying quadrotors are completely autonomous, meaning humans are not controlling them; rather they are controlled by a computer programed with instructions to play the instruments.
