10/08/2013, Hmmm, is it me, or is Disney making a slight shift from just churning out cartoons (as well as new Star Wars movies) by working on technologically advanced ideas for future toys? Well, that seems to be the case as we had already looked at a project which allowed one to generate enough electricity to power an LED simply by rubbing against a special kind of paper. This time around, […]
10/08/2013, When we talk about Disney, most of us would think of the company as one that operates the world’s happiest place, in addition to churning out plenty of cute cartoons along the way which have endeared themselves to the masses for many decades already.

07/28/2013, Disney’s forte would be their cartoons – and one thing about cartoons that we know of would be this; they come with extremely attractive eyes. Disney has come up with a new technology that they call Papillon, which happens to be a bundle of optical fibers that have been printed with the Papillon 3D printing tech.

07/25/2013, When Nintendo first announced that the Nintendo Wii would feature motion control, Sony and Microsoft camps laughed at Nintendo, touting that this is just a gimmick that will die off pretty soon.
