Happy Holidays from Nexed!

Standard

Before powering down for a spell over the holidays, we wanted to make sure to wish everyone glad tidings of comfort and joy for the season. We will be spending precious time with family and friends and refreshing our spiritual browsers, getting ready to meet 2013 head on!

If you find yourself going stir-crazy with the little ones at home and away from the comfortable routine of school, look for our next post sometime before the new year…we may be able to take you down the rabbit hole for a little while on a virtual field trip or two.

Merry and bright days to all! Nexed out.

Thanks to http://neverlandjewelry.com for the Christmas eyeball!

Auditions for the Answerables Arcadium

Standard

The holidays are fast approaching. Good times to cuddle up by a roaring fireplace and play a board game“ Nexed-style!

Today we’d like to highlight 4 games and interactivities that we are currently auditioning for the up and coming Answerables Arcadium- our 21st century version of the old-school arcades that so many of us remember from days of misspent youth! We’ve revved up the academia a little since the days of PacMan and Centipede, but the cool factor hasn’t changed a bit!

This first one isn’t for the faint of heart, or the weak of stomach! It comes from a great site called www.edheads.org. They create educational science and math games that promote critical thinking skills. We’re looking at the “Virtual Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery” for our budding brain surgeons to experience first. Better for them to practice a little in the safe confines of a virtual world before being unleashed on the public at large;)! (more…)

It takes a creative posse to get to the Nexed level

Standard

Before we talk about where we’ll be heading as we gear up to launch our Beta version of Answerables, we’d like to take a look back and recognize all the great teams that helped get us here!

Our AMAZING and AWARD-winning Branding and Marketing team at Premise Design Communications in Toronto, who developed the Nexed brand from the ground up and came up with our hot off the presses Answerables logo.

Our Website and Answerables Dashboard developers at Ninesides in Toronto, who had to dive deep into their bag of tricks to bring us to life on the World Wide Web AND get our Dashboard working its magic.

Both Premise and Ninesides have also been working closely with the marketing genius of Toronto-based Anna Withrow, who’s ability to keep all our plates a’ spinning continues to astound!

Our team at Reaction Grid out of sunny Florida, who got this all kickstarted with their work for us using Jibe, their own 3D virtual world platform that Answerables is built upon.

The gang at Sheridan College in Oakville, a tremendously talented group of post graduate students, who took on the monumental task of creating our first fully integrated game ‘Zone.’ More on this to come in the very near future “ don’t want to spoil the surprise!

And last, but not least, our Canadian government funders and supporters IRAP and FEDDEV and the Will Unicorn Foundation who all believed that Nexed was worth investing in!
