‘World of Color- Celebrate!’ first look – Disneyland 60th annivesary

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

The folks at Disneyland recently invited us to check out the world premiere of its new World of Color- Celebrate! show at Disney California Adventure Park. As part of Disneyland’s 60th anniversary this new show (Celebrate! replaces the original show that has been running since 2010) tells the story of Walt Disney, Mickey Mouse, Disney Animation classics, Disneyland and ends with a look towards the future. If you pay special attention you can also find multiple instances of Star Wars and Marvel characters throughout the show.

The new show, which plays nightly in the Paradise Pier section of the theme park, is narrated by, Neil Patrick Harris. Who, as it turns out, is a huge Disney fanatic.

Of course the above gallery just doesn’t do the show justice, for it is one of those things you really have to experience in person. The 1,200 dancing fountains, combined with the beautiful musical score, flaming fireballs all come together to tell a pretty spectacular immersive story. (Interesting tidbit, if you blow up fireballs, you end up with these insane smoke circle, see gallery below)

As part of this new production, 5 minutes of brand new animation were crated by the Walt Disney Feature Animation to augment the show. The digital projection sits on a 380-foot wide water screen blasting over 30 million pixels; for reference UltraHD and 4K displays sit at around 8.3-8.9ish million pixels respectively. What does it take to program all these special effects, including those 1,200 dancing fountains, all those frames of animation, mixed with lasers and pyrotechnics? 18 months of planning and 3 additional months of programming, that’s all.

World of Color – Celebrate! will begin its run Friday, May 22, which also coincide’s with the Disneyland Resort’s 24-hour party. That’s right you can spend all day/night at the parks. I hope you can stay up that long.

To add to the fun 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!

We’ll have more coverage from the event including so stay tuned.

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…
