Quote "Among her other findings, Gackenbach has noted that gamers tend to have more "bizarre" dreams — those that include far-fetched or impossible scenarios, like imaginary characters or space travel — than their peers. Bizarre dreams, in turn, have also been linked to enhanced creative output in day-to-day life, suggesting (as Gackenbach has also found) that gaming might make us more creative in real-world scenarios."

Quote "Inspired by Shango , the ancient african God of Thunder, ” shangoo ” is the first revolutionary application that provides “augmented” weather forecasts. Thanks to a unique and innovative Augmented Reality Interface, the app allows users to view actual forecasts and meteorological data directly superimposed on the camera view of the mobile device, in real-time and with various 3D weather effects."
