Soul and Vibe Announces 2nd Expansion Pack for Timeless Gems

Company's 2nd Expansion "Book" for Timeless Gems is J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- Soul and Vibe Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SOUL), "The Company," a video, mobile, and computer games publisher, announced today that it will add J.M. Barrie's classic book, Peter Pan, to the Timeless Gems library. Peter Pan is the second expansion "book" for the Timeless Gems game. Its release will add an all-new interactive storyline and new play mechanics to the game's innovative "match-3" gameplay experience that has garnered praise from both players and the press.

Peter Pan will be released late July 2014 for all Timeless Gems platform versions. Timeless Gems was launched worldwide on Facebook, Apple's App Store, and Google Play during the first quarter of 2014. The Company launched the game's first expansion "book," Bram Stoker's Dracula, in April 2014.

"Since childhood, Peter Pan has been one of my favorite books," said Soul and Vibe's CEO and President Peter Anthony Chiodo. "Think about it... who hasn't wanted to be able to fly, travel to a hidden island, fight pirates, and visit with mermaids? As a book, Peter Pan has it all: Adventure, suspense, mystery, a touch of romance; these are all things that J.M. Barrie brilliantly packaged and presented in one the most endearing, and timeless, pieces of literature ever written. I am so proud of the work our development team has put into our Peter Pan expansion. Peter Pan's rich story and characters are a perfect fit for the diverse gameplay and inventive puzzles for which Timeless Gems, as a game, has become known. Like our depictions of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and Dracula before it, Timeless Gems' Peter Pan has really captured the heart and soul of a classic."

"Peter Pan is the best book in the Timeless Gems library to date," said Soul and Vibe's Quality Assurance Manager, Tim Moravec. "Peter Pan, as a book, features six new chapters and 37 all new puzzles. It introduces new mechanics that play to the iconic characteristics of Peter Pan, as a story. I've never before seen a "match-3" game in which you dodge cannonballs, fight pirates, and play catch with mermaids. Peter Pan carries on the tradition we started with Dracula in which you play multiple characters as the story progresses. One of my favorite things in the expansion is a sword fight you have, as Peter Pan, with Captain Hook, one of the most iconic villains of all time. In addition, Peter Pan features some other really cool surprises."

In Timeless Gems, your favorite storybooks come to life in an innovative "match-3" puzzler that's wrapped in a board game. Timeless Gems creates an innovative play experience by combining highly popular "match-3" game play with board game elements. This combination lets players experience classic stories like Peter Pan, Dracula, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in a whole new way. Playing as core characters from the classic books in the Timeless Gems library, you'll meet a colorful cast of heroes and villains. Match gems, power up, and connect and play with your friends on Facebook. The game was developed by Telos Entertainment.

Peter Pan will be the fourth book in the Timeless Gems library and the game's second expansion, following the previously released Dracula. Both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz were released in tandem with the launch of Timeless Gems.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...
There will be new vendors providing applications, middleware, and connected devices to support the thriving IoT ecosystem. This essentially means that electronic device manufacturers will also be in the software business. Many will be new to building embedded software or robust software. This creates an increased importance on software quality, particularly within the Industrial Internet of Things where business-critical applications are becoming dependent on products controlled by software.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to imp...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
