XboxOne explodes across Twitter
Microsoft yesterday launched the Xbox One: a console the firm promises will provide all-in-one entertainment for users.
Accompanying the launch, the #xboxone hashtag was trending for long periods, which helped it to attract the attention of non-gamers too.
In this analysis we’ve taken a quick look at where in the US most people were discussing the launch.
California dominated, generating more than a fifth of mentions, despite only accounting for 12% of the population.
New York also exceeded its share of the US population (approximately 7%), with a 13% share of discussion.
In contrast, although Texas and Florida generated the fourth and fifth largest volume of discussion respectively, it was on a par with their share of the population.
Perhaps not surprisingly, males dominated the conversation, accounting for 86% of all mentions of the #XboxOne hashtag.
“Pizza is an obvious candidate for 3D printing because it can be printed in distinct layers, so it only requires the print head to extrude one substance at a time. Contractor’s “pizza printer” is still at the conceptual stage, and he will begin building it within two weeks. It works by first “printing” a layer of dough, which is baked at the same time it’s printed, by a heated plate at the bottom of the printer. Then it lays down a tomato base, “which is also stored in a powdered form, and then mixed with water and oil,” says Contractor. Finally, the pizza is topped with the delicious-sounding “protein layer,” which could come from any source, including animals, milk or plants.”—The audacious plan to end hunger with 3-D printed food
