‘Gumball Dreams’ to have its International Premiere at the 79th Venice International Film Festival

LOS ANGELES, CA, Aug 5, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Internationally premiering at the 79th Venice International Film Festival, brought to you by the award-winning virtual reality production company Ferryman Collective and Screaming Color, their fourth VR production, Gumball Dreams is an Official Selection of the oldest festival in the world after having won the SXSW Audience Award XR Experience Competition.

Organised by La Biennale di Venezia and directed by Alberto Barbera, the 79th Venice International Film Festival will take place at the Venice Lido from 31 August to 10 September 2022.

“In Gumball Dreams, our character Onyx has been blessed with the opportunity to explore worlds, and to experience the very best that those worlds have to offer. The delicious metapoetry is not lost on me that this work appears to be bringing me and my team similar opportunities,” states Christopher Lane Davis, aka Screaming Color, “I’m beyond thrilled that we will have almost two weeks to romp around one of the most beautiful cities in the world, meeting some of the most genius creators alive, and getting to experience their art. And I’m endlessly grateful to the founders and curators of the festival for bringing us together in this way.”

Gumball Dreams is a live, hour-long immersive experience in virtual reality that takes three audience members on a fantastical journey through a surreal landscape in space, dominated by a whimsical Gumball Machine, where Onyx, the main character sits on their throne waiting. A powerful and intimate experience that allows us to discover a mythic world beyond the reaches of our reality.

NARRATIVE SUMMARY

You have been called by an alien creature named Onyx to a mythical planet on which they are living out their final days. You, and two others, are asked to help them transition from this reality to the next. Each interaction with this majestic creature is illuminating and fascinating as you are asked to delve into your past and share stories with your fellow travelers in moments out of time.

But before Onyx can lay infinite wisdom at your feet, the weight of your spirit must be assessed. If found ready, you shall embark upon the journey of a lifetime, skipping among the stars, floating above the spheres, and remembering who you truly are.

Greetings, Traveler.

HOW IT WORKS

Gumball Dreams is performed live with one actor playing multiple roles. Through the magic of VR technology, participants feel fully immersed in our 3D world.

“There are things that can be done in VR that can only be seen in the movies, however, with VR, we allow the audience to be immersed inside these 3D worlds, in a way that 2D mediums cannot achieve,” says Stephen Butchko “there is a sense of awe about the scope and scale of things that can be accomplished in VR.”

PROJECT HISTORY

“This show was inspired by Club Gumball and Gumball Lounge, the existing worlds of Christopher Lane Davis, aka Screaming Color,” explains Deirdre V. Lyons, “with such beauty and grandeur, I felt this was the perfect environment to bring a new kind of story alive, almost as if it had been waiting for Onyx to step into the world and take a breath.”

Coming off the award-winning success of the festival darling The Severance Theory: Welcome to Respite, Ferryman Collective continues to trail-blaze in this new storytelling medium. Ferryman Collective is also known for PARA and Krampusnacht, a finalist for the PGA Innovation Award.

“VR allows us to combine the centuries old traditions of theater and performance with exciting and boundary breaking technology to bring people into an entirely new world.” adds Whitton Frank.

World’s Biggest Deal for Humanoid Robots Inked

NEW YORK, Aug 4, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Robotics innovator Beyond Imagination, Inc. has entered into an agreement with SELF Labs, Inc. to provide at least 1,000 humanoid robots for use in agricultural "grow boxes"'. This is believed to be the largest deal of its kind.



SELF and Beyond are announcing a partnership to develop automated off-the-grid grow boxes. Each box will be equipped with solar panels, windmills, atmospheric water generators, 5G, and an advanced version of Beyond Imagination's Beomni robot with its Omni-Purpose AI Brain. By aligning the visions of Milan Cheeks of SELF and Dr. Harry Kloor of Beyond, this futuristic take on farming will be made possible through a uniquely powerful combination of Omni-Purpose AI, humanoid robotics, blockchain, and game technology.

The deal with SELF represents one of the largest agreements to purchase humanoid robots in the world. Cheeks says that "We are committed to purchasing at least 1,000 robots in the next five years, but if the effectiveness of our combined technology is as we project, that number could easily grow to ten thousand or more." According to a recent report by Markets and Markets, the humanoid robotics market will reach an estimated USD 17.3 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 63.5% between 2022 and 2027. The agreement with Beyond is in alignment with this prediction. Dr. Kloor commented, "Beyond Imagination expects to represent a billion USD or more of that market share by 2027, and with our partnership with SELF Labs we are well on our way to that goal."

Each grow box will be connected to a SELF Labs-powered trivia-based simulation game called Cultivate Coin, which allows users to choose a role, learn about farming and the growing process, learn how to operate a grow box business, earn rewards, and most of all take part in the growing process virtually.

The Beomni Omni-Purpose AI powered humanoid robots supplied by Beyond will work autonomously inside of the boxes to tend to the growing crops. The boxes will run on solar energy, and by using atmospheric water generator technology will not require any outside sources for power or water, making them self-sufficient.

Most robots are targeted at narrow verticals or are merely elaborate R&D demos. Beomni is different. Its thinking general-purpose robotics platform learns from human pilots who train its AI Brain to tackle increasingly sophisticated tasks autonomously. Beomni, combined with Beyond's Cloud Platform and evolving AI, can tackle limitless tasks without requiring special peripherals like industrial robots. Beomni is a fully mobile robot that is designed to work safely around humans. It is the world's first fully functional general-purpose robotic system, and the first to be beta tested at a medical facility. According to Dr. Kloor, "Working with SELF and its community will enable us to rapidly train Beomni's AI Brain to plant, care and tend, harvest, and box the crops in SELF's grow boxes."

Beomni has advanced significantly since it was revealed at CES in 2022. In April, the company demonstrated that Beomni can be operated from anyplace in the world. Additional prototyping and on-site evaluation projects are currently underway. The version Beyond will deploy in the grow boxes will be even more advanced, and will be part of Beyond's 2.0 product line of Beomni robots.

"I'm excited to bring this idea to life!" said SELF Labs founder Milan Cheeks. "Adding decentralization and automation to the farming industry will benefit everyone. While there is no single solution to solve world hunger, our automated off the grid grow boxes is one tool that will go a long way in meeting the UN's goal to reach zero hunger by 2030."

The first box will be crafted at Box For Grow in New Hampton, NY. Once assembled, it will begin operation for use within the United States.

The Future of Gaming has Arrived: Everything You Need to Know About the Mirror Image One Console

PRE-ORDER TODAY! www.mirrorimageone.xyz

Colorado, USA, June 9, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – I hope you are as excited as we are for the release of the Mirror Image One Console. In the meantime, we wanted to provide details on what to expect from the console and our launch.

What is the Mirror Image One?

The Mirror Image One is the world’s first Web 3.0 Gaming console powered by Nvidia GPUs and a Virtual Windows PC in the cloud. Our Console allows you to play your favorite games, securely browse the internet by using our secured browser, and development programs for Web 3.0. The Console will have one of the fastest Internet speeds in the world compatible with most devices.

The Console also can connect to VR Headsets. With the use of the Virtual Windows PC in the cloud, we have eliminated the need for needing to upgrade your device again.

One of our main goals is to bring the power and ease of use into the hands of everyone, by creating a product that is secure, fast, and easy to use.

How does the console work?

You can access your console from any device by visiting our website and logging in using your gamertag and password or simply by connecting your wallet. Once you are logged in, you will get access to your personalized dashboard where you can access games, apps, modify your reflection avatar, send and receive payments, complete missions, and securely chat with friends.

Personalized Dashboard

Our personalized dashboard gives you the power to take control of your experience in Web 3.0. Allowing you to simply login into the accounts you already have to get rewarded for your activity. For example, if you have an Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Live Account you can login into your account and start playing. The difference between using Xbox directly and our console is with our consoles you are provided daily missions for your gameplay. So, if you normally play Fortnite every day you can now get rewarded by completing missions like play Fortnite for one hour and receive 5 SELF Coins. This reward system works for everything not just gaming allowing you to get rewarded for developing programs, learning about Web 3 from select schools, visiting metaverses, interacting with Dapps, and more.

What are Reflection Avatars?

Reflection Avatars are a way to express yourself on Web 3.0. We have chosen to make your avatar reflect who you are in the real world by being yourself or you can represent yourself as your favorite PFP project. You can even customize your Avatar using different clothes as wearable NFTs and accessories that allow you to stand out from the crowd. Each wearable NFT is backed by the physical product so if you buy a shirt for your avatar, you will receive both the digital version for your avatar and the physical drop shipped to your residence. This will allow you to build your physical and virtual closet at the same time.

.W3 and .ETH Gamertags

With each console order you are provided with a .W3 and .ETH Gamertag. The .W3 Gamertags are on the Xinfin Blockchain which means you can earn in-game currency (SELF Coins) and transfer them to your XDC wallet to use in Decentralized Apps. We also provide .ETH Gamertags that are native to the Ethereum Blockchain. Our ETH Gamertags are ENS subdomains that contain .Mirrorimage.ETH. For example, if you chose the Gamertag “Best In The World”, your .ETH Gamertag will look like (Bestintheworld.mirrorimage.eth). Each Gamertag allows you to send and receive payments, automatically earn rewards, and securely chat with your friends using our chat section.

Secured Browsing

We partnered with Plata Data to provide you with a secured browsing experience within your console. Plato Data does NOT share your data and offers full encryption for your browsing experience. To learn more about Plato Data visit their website here.

What are Missions?

Missions are daily rewarded tasks provided based on your real time activity. Each monthly subscription provides a certain amount of missions per day. The Common Edition provides 5 missions daily, The Rare Edition provides 10 missions, and the Legendary Edition provides 20+ missions per day. The goal for our missions is not to provide you with hard task or a bunch of tasks that make purchase or subscribe to stuff like those scam sites. We want to provide missions for tasks you are already use to completing in your day to make your everyday activities more worth it.

How does the monthly subscription work?

Unlike most platforms that offer virtual pcs as a service we don’t charge a monthly fee in fiat currency. Instead, we allow each monthly subscription to be paid in our utility token (SELF Coin). This allows you to easily use a portion of your rewards to maintain access to your virtual pc. Don’t worry about not having enough SELF Coins each month as long as your active you will always receive more SELF Coins in rewards than what is required for your monthly subscription.

As we get closer to launch, we will provide more details about the Console and a Whitepaper that will provide full details on how our SELF Coins work. In the meantime, join our discord to stay up to date on everything about the Mirror Image One. Until next time!

GGTOOR's weekly recap;

Another month, more records broken! This time, the Company reached new heights on Unique Twitch Viewership, tallying over 39,000 different people tuning in to watch one of our events during the course of May as the action unfolded live, and the number of tournaments hosted by GGTOOR was its largest count yet for a single month. May also saw a 39% increase in total player registrations compared to April, with over 1,600 new players competing in one of our events for their very first time, joining thousands of others that returned to play with us once again.

As the Company began its first week of events in June, for the first time the Company had a Wild Rift tournament on the calendar and it was well received, drawing over 400 player registrations, and bringing the combined total of player registrations for the last week to over 1,200! The Company saw player registrations for the Pokemon TCG Online Gaard Guantlet tournament grow by 46% over the last event of this series.

Hearthstone posted a 47% gain compared to the May event, and not to be outdone, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate posted a whopping 55% increase in player registrations for this week's event!

The special invitational to mark the end of the season for the Wednesday's Pokemon TCG Online Late Night series was finally here, and the timing couldn't have been better, kicking off the new Astral Radiance format with a bang! The community wondered what shifts in the meta to expect; would we see Palkia VSTAR? Darkrai VSTAR? Updated variants of existing powerhouse archetypes? With 30 of the best players in the game, we saw these minds bring a wide variety of decks, including some that were unexpected – when the dust settled, we found the Top 8 featured some of the decks you might expect joined by some surprises such as Gengar VMAX / Houndoom! The other decks that made the cut were Toolbox / Inteleon, Mew VMAX, Palkia VSTAR / Inteleon, Arceus VSTAR / Inteleon, and Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX / Toolbox.

Starting off coverage of the Top eight, we saw Logan McKay play against Cal Connor in a Gengar vs. Mew matchup. The matchup was absolutely nightmare fuel for Cal on paper, but he was able to take a quick win after Logan had some poor draws game one; However, in game two and three Logan's Path to the Peak shut down Cal's Genesect V, paving the way to victory. The featured SemiFinals match was a slightly closer battle, with WadeDaze going up against Andrew Hedrick in a Mew vs. Palkia matchup.

Throughout the entire series WadeDaze was rarely able to get OHKOs with Mew VMAX against a Palkia VSTAR, often coming up ten damage shy, largely due to Andrew's use of Tool Jammer to stop Choice Belt from adding the extra thirty damage – this tech helped him secure the match win! The Grand Finals found Andrew against another Mew, this time being piloted by Augusto Beringer. Game one Augusto donked on Andrew, who lost due to an empty bench when his Lumineon V was knocked out.

Game two Andrew was able to even up the series, repeatedly scoring OHKOs with Palkia VSTAR thanks to a combination of Echoing Horn (to increase damage output), Choice Belt, Leon, and Quick Shooting. Game three was looking terrible for Augusto, but a few critical topdecks and favorable coin flips enabled Augusto to OHKO Andrew's only Benched Palkia V. Andrew struggled to set up with such an aggressive play, and Augusto was able to pick up a few more easy Prize Cards. Andrew tried one last play to stall a Genesect V in the Active Spot with Boss's Orders, but Augusto was able to claim victory by retreating with a Double Turbo Energy to close out the match!

This week's Smash Ultimate event showed us that a tier list does not matter! The Top sixteen was littered with a wide range of characters typically considered under-powered, like Kirby, Dr Mario, Donkey Kong, Villager, and Ganondorf, which promised the viewers would be in for some unique gameplay! Yei, a veteran player regarded by many as the best Meta Knight in the world, joined us for this week's event, showing his range of skill with the decision to not use Meta Knight at all until the very last game of Grand Finals!

Instead, Yei opted to use a variety of different characters over the day, such as Lucina, Byleth, and Palutena, to make it all the way to the Grand Finals without dropping a single set. This includes a 3-0 win over JaZaR, the strongest veteran of all the tournaments in this event series! We also saw an incredible run from Nalexander, making it all the way to third place with Ganondorf, who many consider to be the worst character in the entire game. JaZaR fought his way back to the Grand Finals through the losers side for his chance at a rematch vs. Yei; There was no 3-0 this time, with JaZaR tying up the series 2-2 and forcing a game five, which finally prompted Yei to pilot his well known Meta Knight for game five, ultimately besting JaZar in the final game and earning Yei the championship title!

Since a few years back the metaverse has grown to become a driving force in crypto and the tech world at large, especially with the increasing acceptance and adoption of cryptocurrency, its wallets, and much more.

Without a doubt, demand for metaverse projects has risen dramatically, with more corporations showing unprecedented interest in virtual reality every day. Given the growing corporate fascination with the Metaverse, the general public's attention is also bound to be drawn to the significant technology which is bound to change the course of our digital lives.

It's simpler to think of the metaverse as a hybrid of the physical and digital worlds, which combines the best of both. Even so, it doesn't change the fact that much of the general populace is still in the dark about what the metaverse is, and what it means. We are very excited that soon people will embrace this new technology where they can build the life they always wanted virtually.

BUSINESS REVIEW

Office Software and Services
For the first quarter of 2022, revenue from the office software and services business increased 13% year-on-year to RMB871.1 million. The year-on-year increase was mainly due to the continued growth of Kingsoft Office Group's individual and institutional subscription business.
