Now, more than 30 years later, the exhibition on display in Calgary, Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out, showcases one of their greatest feats, a towering giraffe.

    StarBlox Inc. is a new competitive puzzle-brawler game akin to Super Puzzle Fighter Puzzle II Turbo and Crystal Crisis. It looks like a blast of a game for when you have just a couple of friends over. The craziest part to me though is who is behind the game. The game comes from Ingenium, Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation. They partnered with Seed Interactive to bring this game to life and I’m happy about that. The game supports up to four people in two local multiplayer modes and features photos from NASA!
