The Nintendo Game Boy Has Turned 30 Years Old

Exactly 30 years ago, on April 21, 1989, Nintendo released the next generation console for handheld games after the success of their Game & Watch game. It was a gray machine with a green LCD screen and red buttons where the games were loaded via cassettes. It was called Game Boy and would take the world by storm. The concept was mainly Satoru Okada and Gunpei Yokoi, a couple of Nintendo's veterans in the development department. The new handheld console with interchangeable game cartridges quickly became a success. After the release in Japan in 1989, the console reached the United States a few months later, and here in Europe we had to wait more than a year when Game Boy was first released here in 1990.

At MIT you work on a number of concepts for more efficient windows. Among other things, an aerogel that is lighter than marshmallows and provides 50 percent better insulation than traditional glass panes. According to the US Energy Agency, buildings account for 40 percent of the country's energy consumption. But according to the authority's calculations, about 30 percent of that energy is lost by heat leaking or penetrating through the windows of the properties. Developing window glass with a minimal energy loss is thus an important contribution. At MIT, a team works on several solutions. Among other things, researcher Elise Strobach has spent two years developing "Aeroshield". It is a transparent silica airgel that consists of 95 percent of air. The other five percent are silica nan...

How to Succeed With Your IT Recruiting

Other
The fact that many companies compete for IT specialists is hardly something new. Employers without a well-known brand with the latest technology in Fin Tech, games, AI or the media, can find it extremely difficult to attract the one candidate that many are looking for: around 30 years, preferably college educated with at least 5 years of qualifying work experience (preferably social, driven, passionately engaged with genuine technology interest and preferably understanding of both IT and business). Often you want the candidate to have worked with about the same thing for a couple of years already so that you can come in and deliver with minimal starting distance. Our tip to you who are facing recruitment: remember that not only are you the one who will choose a candidate, your target...
The Battery’s Cell Structure

The Battery’s Cell Structure

Other
Battery cell structure A battery cell consists of three main components; two electrodes and one electrolyte. The negative electrode is called an anode and the positive electrode is called a cathode. Inside the cell, the anode and cathode are only in contact with each other through the electrolyte: a material that has an ability to conduct ions but not electrons. The electrolyte is usually a liquid e.g. water or an organic solvent with a dissolved salt to increase ion conductivity. There are also battery cells where the electrolyte is in solid or gel-like form. In addition to the main components, a battery cell usually contains two current conductors connected to the respective electrode as well as a separator, a permeable membrane that allows ion transport but which ensures that the el...

4 Tips if You Are are Thinking About a Web shop

Other
As a product retailer today, your products are required to be available in a simple and easy way to meet consumer expectations and needs. Oftentimes, this means creating a webshop. In the market, there are a plethora of so-called “out-of-the-box” solutions, where you are offered a ready-made shell for a webshop where you can put your own products in, and voilá, you have a viable webshop. These solutions often have a fairly generic appearance and easily become quite impersonal. The alternative to this is to develop a customized webshop with an external party. This may sound both expensive and very time consuming but is it really true? When you start to do a bit of it and analyze what you actually get out of a standard solution versus an in-house developed solution, the answer is not as o...

People use their smart phones too much, says Apple CEO Tim Cook. In a recent interview, he reveals an effective ploy to reduce mobile dependency. It was during an interview at the "Time 100 Summit" event that Apple's CEO aired his views on the use of smart cell phones - and how dependent many have become of his "teddy bears". It may seem a bit overwhelming, given Apple's part in, and the huge merit of, the broad impact of smart phones. But according to Tim Cook, Apple has never had any interest in people using their phones constantly, writes Business Insider. That has never been a goal for us. It is clear that some apps trigger users to keep scrolling thoughtlessly, as well as causing them to constantly pick up their phones to see what is happening, Tim Cook said during the interv...
