The first endless flyer, Kid Aviator, is now on sale for iOS and Android devices. Tilt your phone or tablet to dodge, swipe to drag obstacles out of the way, and tap to destroy hazards like glass bottles and overly-aggressive piñatas as you gain altitude. Think you can rule the skies? Only one way to find out!
Kid Aviator is about Kid, a daring aviator-in-the-making that takes flight with the help of a circus cannon. To boost attendance, Kid must become famous by breaking high-altitude records and making fans happy. Along the way, players need to avoid red (destructible) and yellow (swipeable) hazards—while using green power-ups wisely to better Kid’s chances. Quick reflexes and strategy are needed at all times; one iron anvil is all it takes to send the young aviator tumbling down. . .
“Kids and kids at heart love the idea of flying. We dream and fantasize about it, but most of us never get a chance to fly in real life,” said Kid Aviator developer, Mattia Fortunati. “Kid Aviator allows us to take flight from a cannon and explore the world above. Sometimes surreal, usually frantic, Kid Aviator makes the dream tangible for a few minutes at a time. We hope you enjoy playing it as much we enjoyed making it :)”

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
