Lufthansa Realtime Air Traffic Control System

25 Jun 2009  No Comments

From The Discerption:

In the flight control tower of the Lufthansa Brand Academy Frankfurt-Seeheim visitors learn about the local and global connections of international air traffic. A 14 meter wide 180 degrees projection let´s the visitors dive into the fully navigable, realtime 3D visualization of 16000 daily Lufthansa and Star Alliance flights. The intuitive navigation interface provides 6 degrees of freedom. Additional time and content filters can be activated with extra buttons and sliders. In just a few seconds of flight the user can move from a macro view of a local hub to a global overview of the worldwide air traffic routes.

16000? thats a a lot of flights.

Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen – Movie Review

25 Jun 2009  No Comments

Just got back from the movie and I have to say, I have no idea why the reviews were that harsh. I mean when you’re going to see a Transformers movie you’re not expecting it to be a award winning drama, its an action movie that would be really appreciated by a Transformers G1 fan. It’s not perfect, but still not that bad.

From IMDB:

The battle for Earth has ended but the battle for the universe has just begun. After returning to Cybertron, Starscream assumes command of the Decepticons, and has decided to return to Earth with force. The Autobots believing that peace was possible finds out that Megatron’s dead body has been stolen from the US Military by Skorpinox and revives him using his own spark. Now Megatron is back seeking revenge and with Starscream and more Decepticon reinforcements on the way, the Autobots with reinforcements of their own, may have more to deal with then meets the eye.

I’m a big Transformers fan, and after reading the reviews I went to the movie with really low expectations. Maybe that affected my opinion of the movie.

But hell I liked it.

Rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆

The critics are hammering “Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen ” with their reviews:

“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” is a horrible experience of unbearable length” - Roger Ebert

“…dazzles the eye, numbs the mind and may cause deafness in some cases. Did I mention to bring along some Excedrin?” — Lou Lumenick, New York Post

“Fanboys will no doubt love it, but for the uninitiated it’s loud, tedious and, at 147 minutes, way too long.” — Ray Bennett, Hollywood Reporter

“This sequel to the clever and funny first Transformers not only is disappointing, it will give most people a throbbing case of metal overload.” — Claudia Puig, USA Today

But still I’m going to see it today.

Since we are almost half way through of 2009, and having E3 ending with some great news. It’s a good time to make a this list.

I will also do a PS3 list soon. Most of the games are multi-platform anyway.

Games are sorted by release date:

Batman: Arkham Asylum

(August 25, 2009) PS3/360

Lets face it, super hero games always sucked. But Batman: Arkham Asylum is on its way to be the best superhero based game ever released (thats not a very high bar to start with) but using the Unreal 3 Engine looks a very good choice for this game.
