‘Disneyland Forever’ premieres – New fireworks show celebrates 60 years

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

Disneyland celebrates its Diamond Celebration 60th anniversary this year and it kicks of today, May 22 with a 24 hour party. A new fireworks show, Disneyland Forever, caps off every fun filled night at Disneyland. For your money, it is hard to beat a Disney fireworks extravaganza. Each pyrotechnic shell and lighting effect is perfectly calibrated in sync with a colorful, emotion-filled soundtrack. Disneyland Forever certainly fits that mold but also breaks precedent with this show.

Of course Sleeping Beauty Castle is the center showcase of the fireworks show, though you can find different and even more stunning views across other locations including “it’s a small world”, Rivers of America and down Main Street, U.S.A. Each of these locations are blanketed with dozens of projectors, lasers, inflatables and spotlights. What’s really neat about these projectors and lasers is that they change the environment around you. They take you to Anaheim, California back before Disneyland when it was just orange groves, then it takes you to London with Mary Poppins, an African savanna with the Lion King or The Jungle Book. Which is exactly what the creators of this fireworks show wanted.

Steve Davison, executive producer and Sayre Wiseman, executive for parades & spectaculars for Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment both echo that technology is great but it means nothing if its not “Magic.” Instead of guests figuring out, “oh that’s how it works” or “look there is a display, some lights and other gadgets” but rather the feeling of imagination and magic making you feel like you are in those worlds of Disney storytelling. It’s like walking in to a VR world.

Something that we echo here at TechnoBuffalo is no matter how spectacular technology is, it doesn’t matter if you can’t use it or appreciate it. That’s just as important when it comes to telling stories.

Which is why people will really like Disneyland Forever. While you will traverse through those worlds we mentioned about along with Winnie the Pooh, the Little Mermaid, Frozen and more, it will just feel like magic. In fact during this particular performance of Disneyland Forever I saw more than a fair share of adults shedding tears. I won’t say during when or why, I won’t spoil it for you. You’ll need to make the trek to Disneyland park during the Diamond Celebration to see just how amazing this fireworks display is.

Disneyland Forever will run through the 60th Anniversary celebration, though we haven’t been told how long that will last. But at any rate, Disneyland is fun, just look at these knuckleheads on a recent office trip to Disneyland.

Also don’t forget Disney is holding the Disneyland Diamond Days sweepstakes, which include actual one- and two-carat diamonds, priority access to select attractions, private parties at Disneyland, an overnight stay inside Disneyland Park and whole bunch of other really cool prizes. To enter head over to http://ift.tt/1DFfJsX beginning May 22. Good luck!

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.
¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
