The New Trends Shaping the Loot Box Landscape

POSTED BY James Moar
Loot boxes originated from loot systems in MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing games) in the Asian market, and from the monetisation of F2P mobile gaming. As players in Asian countries often did not have the funds to purchase full-cost titles, developers began to introduce loot boxes as a method to guarantee monetisation from a game that would otherwise not generate revenue from significant base sales.

The Road to Smart Parking

The Evolution of the Autonomous Vehicle

POSTED BY Sam Barker
Cars are now becoming more than a form of transport, but items of technological convenience that users are familiar with at home or at work. They need to include all the technology to make them intuitive, entertaining, informative and safe. This means that cars have to interact with a wider transport infrastructure around them, other vehicles and road users, as well as value-added services around them. This requires not just co-ordination between technologies, but also legislature, insurance, media and information services.
