An early morning teaser for something new from Nintendo for kids or people who are kids at heart turned into a surprisingly explosive announcement for something we now know as Nintendo Labo. Right now it's a pair a DIY kits for a series of fun interactive games on the Nintendo Switch, and nearly everything in these kits are made of cardboard.
In its signature weird and wonderful way, Nintendo is bringing DIY accessories to the Switch made largely out of cardboard and designed to unlock a whole new world of imagination. These kits are called Labo, and it couldn't be more clear Nintendo is aiming these imagination machines at the youngest among us. Want to get in on the fun? You'll be waiting a bit, since Nintendo won't be ready to ship these new toys until the end of April, but it's possible to pre-order each of the two kits right now!
The latest update to Star Trek: Bridge Crew made it possible for PC players to enjoy the game without putting on a VR headset. This made it possible for people to enjoy the Star Trek universe no matter where they are, as long as they are connected to the internet. It's still an experience best enjoyed with a VR headset, of course, but if that's not an option the next best thing is going to be picking up a gaming controller.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
