A few weeks back, I took my Google Glass along with me to Costa Rica. I was able to fill our entire zip lining adventure in Selvatura Park near Monte Verde - a full 33 minute video - through glass.

Here's a clip of one of the higher legs - I believe it was 50 meters. I definitely reached some top speeds at first, but then the wind hit and really slowed me down - you can see me moving to the left-of-center toward the end of the leg as the wind pushed me from the right.

Also, at one point, I am able to catch a view of a nearby hanging bridge.

I agree with the last quote in this article, "Giants never die." Marquez had a huge influence on me and I certainly mourn his passing.

I read everything he wrote. "100 Years" is good, but I was blown away by "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" and "The General in His Labyrinth".
Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez has died, his family and officials said.

I think this is a change for the better and will probably make Unreal a viable option for smaller game dev start ups.  I still like Unity's model, but you will still have to pay more money to upgrade to newer versions later.  Also, 5% of gross seems odd. For the average developer the cost of processing payments might be excessive since 5% of what many developers actually make is small. I think Unreal might want to think about adding a floor to the gross revenues, i.e. $100,000.
Licensing a big 3D engine (like Unreal) to build your video game has always been... kind of hard. Pricing was done case-by-case. You had to explain what you..

I agree about the floor, with UDK the floor was set at 50k I indeed think this would be a viable option. Other than that I'm excited about ue4 and the native android support

+Dean Takahashi It's not clear where India (South Asia) and Southeast Asia fall in these categories. 'Asia' seems to mean China, Japan and Korea.
 
Android and iOS are battling each other in every major market in the world, and gaming is the biggest part of that fight.
