Per la prima volta al volante del prototipo della Settima Generazione di Corvette

ROMA, December 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

La Corvette 2014 camuffata disponibile per Gran Turismo®5, scaricabile gratuitamente su PlayStation® Store

Quando gli appassionati accenderanno la loro PlayStation®3 (PS3™), avranno la possibilità di entrare a far parte della storia di Corvette. Chevrolet e Sony Computer Entertainment America, LLC (SCEA) offrono infatti ai giocatori un'esperienza di guida assolutamente unica e innovativa consentendo di scaricare il prototipo camuffato della Corvette C7 per il popolarissimo gioco Gran Turismo®5 per PS3™.

Chevrolet e Polyphony Digital Inc., gli ideatori del pluripremiato Gran Turismo®, hanno lavorato di concerto per offrire un'esperienza di guida della massima autenticità al volante del prototipo della settima generazione di Corvette, attualmente nelle mani di pochissime persone in tutto il mondo.

Durante la creazione virtuale del prototipo di Corvette, si è dedicata una particolare attenzione ai dettagli più nascosti, dalle pieghe ed increspature del leggero camuffamento utilizzato per celare il nuovo design, fino alle caratteristiche di guida, che al momento sono in fase di definizione e perfezionamento, a poco tempo dal debutto ufficiale della vettura previsto per gennaio.

"Fino a oggi solo i piloti più abili del team Corvette sono stati autorizzati a spingere al limite i prototipi su alcuni dei circuiti più impegnativi del mondo," ha dichiarato Chris Perry, Vice Presidente Chevrolet Global Marketing. "Grazie a questa eccezionale collaborazione con Gran Turismo, Chevrolet può offrire agli appassionati di auto sportive la possibilità di vivere per la prima volta un'esperienza di guida esclusiva."

Tutte le sei generazioni precedenti di Corvette sono state a disposizione dei giocatori di Gran Turismo fin dalla prima versione del gioco e il modello Chevrolet resta uno dei preferiti per gareggiare. Il prototipo camuffato della Corvette C7 è disponibile fin da subito per il download dal PlayStation® Store accessibile dalla PlayStation®3, senza costi aggiuntivi, e può essere guidato su alcuni dei circuiti più famosi del mondo, tra cui l'International Speedway di Daytona e il famigerato Nürburgring - uno dei circuiti utilizzati per valutare le caratteristiche dinamiche della nuova Corvette.

"Gran Turismo ha potuto disporre di molte anteprime e siamo molto felici di collaborare con Chevrolet per portare il primo prototipo Chevrolet di sempre nel simulatore di guida," ha dichiarato Kazunori Yamauchi, Presidente di Polyphony Digital Inc. "Noi stessi siamo appassionati di automobili e ci entusiasma offrire ai giocatori questa possibilità straordinaria di guidare la settima generazione di Corvette, altrimenti irrealizzabile."

La serie Gran Turismo ha venduto oltre 67 milioni di copie dalla prima edizione e resta il gioco esclusivo per PlayStation più venduto di tutti i tempi.

Chevrolet presenterà la Corvette 2014 domenica 13 gennaio 2013. Per ulteriori informazioni e contenuti video, visitate http://www.one13thirteen.com.

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
