Editors Note: There is a video associated with this Press Release.
This winter, gamers of all ages can battle it out to become the best slugslinger of all time in the new game Slug it Out!, for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®. Launching December 13, Slug it Out! is a fast-paced action puzzle game based on the popular animated television series, Slugterra.
The game transports players to the underground world of Slugterra where Eli Shane must collect little creatures called slugs, use them to battle a horde of villains, and stop the evil Dr. Blakk! Each slug has its own unique powers and transforms into a powerful battle beast when fired from a blaster!
Players must quickly match tiles on the game board to power up their slugs and fire across at their opponent. New slug powers are earned through game play, with eight slugs to collect: Infernus, Frostcrawler, Tazerling, Flatulorhinkus, Arachnet, Fandango, Boon Doc and Enigmo. The key to success lies in choosing the right attack and defense slugs for each round, and using them at the right time. Opponents pack their own punch using evil "ghoul" slugs!
The game is based on the animated action-comedy series Slugterra, airing on Disney XD. The series follows the adventures of Eli and his team of friends as they explore the caverns of Slugterra collecting, training and dueling with magical creatures called slugs. When fired at 100 MPH out of a high-powered blaster, they unleash their awesome powers! Eli and his friends must stop the evil Dr. Blakk who is trying to "ghoul" the slugs, transforming them into feral mindless weapons, and battle a host of opponents and henchmen along the way! Television viewers can consult local listings for air times.
Slugterra is the fourth original property developed by Nerd Corps Entertainment. A toy line developed by JAKKS Pacific will hit shelves in spring 2013, with several additional key licensees signed on for the brand and rolling out merchandise throughout 2013 and beyond.
Slug it Out! is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch for $0.99 in the US and Canada. It is the first iOS game developed and published by Nerd Corps Entertainment.

Choose your ammo... Slug it out! Slugterra is an epic sci-fi comedy adventure set deep underground, where the ammo's alive and only the quick survive! In this luminous, high-tech, underground world every cavern holds a new adventure, new battle and weird little slugs to be discovered. Eli Shane is determined to be the greatest slugslinging hero of them all. To do it, he'll need to collect and train an army of little critters called slugs. When these magical creatures are fired at 100 MPH out of a high-powered blaster, they transform into powerful battle beasts! The adventure follows Eli and his team of friends as they explore the caverns, challenge rivals and each other to duels, upgrade their cool gear, and generally have a blast in this never-before-imagined underground world. But there is a very real threat to Slugterra; Dr. Blakk is seeking to "ghoul" the slugs, transforming them into feral mindless weapons!

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
