Red Bull World Championship 2019

Slovakia Wins Red Bull Escape Room World Championship in London

22 elite escape room teams flew in from around the world to take on the Red Bull Escape Room World Championship. The rooms were some of the world’s most challenging  never seen before escape rooms. It say a Slovakian team called Brainteaselava take the number 1 spot!

Brainteaselava and Croatian team TG 170 defeated 21 of the best teams from around the world in difficult qualifiers on the Friday before going head to head in ‘Omni’s Escape‘ which was deemed the world’s toughest escape room. The room was built specifically for he championship by escape room mastermind Dr Scott Nicholson and his team. Brainteaselava pipped TG 170 to the post by completing the room in 27mins and 16 seconds, 10minutes faster than their Croatian counterparts.

Red Bull World Championship

Teams from over 20 countries including UK, Australia, Germany, India, Estonia, USA and Brazil, all competed for the trophy. They qualified for the championship in unique qualifier events in their respective countries last year. The Semi Final saw teams undertake three custom built 10min challenges. These challenges were designed to determine who were the two fastest teams. These two teams would then go on to the final ‘Omni’s Escape’. Which was designed to take a look at players problem solving skills: creativity, logic, visual thinking, musicality, memory and strategy.

“It’s amazing. We haven’t been world champions yet so it’s a great feeling. It was really exciting across the whole two days, we didn’t know what to expect….We weren’t sure how well we did and the other team was really strong, but in the end it turns out we were faster, and the fastest!” Emil Haas from Brainteaselava.

“We are pretty satisfied with the results. We came up short but it doesn’t matter, we had a lot of fun and they deserved it, they were a better team than us for sure” Dominik Erbeznik from TG 170.

“With the World Finals this year we tackled an ethical question, does AI have rights? Omni is an AI agent that wants to leave White Hat Laboratories and we hope that players will think about this when they order their devices around! We also worked very hard this year to reduce the cultural bias around the escape room so that everyone had a chance to win.” Dr Scott Nicholson.

Swipe Delete Facts

Swipe Delete Facts

Houseology’s Swipe Delete has been out for a little while and we are all loving it! However, there is now an incredible music video to go along with it as well. We think that this is a wonderful piece of work from both our own Funk Butcher and Swiss from So Solid Crew. While the video is a bit of fun and they’re all dressed up to portray an older generation. The song quite rightly begs the question. Are we addicted to social media?

What is Swipe Delete?

It’s brand new dance track from Funk Butcher and Swiss that is blowing up on the socials! Not only that it has got a lot of mainstream love! Including BBC Radio 1’s DJ Target playing the dance track on his show recently.  Furthermore to that, Kiss Fm DJ Majestic has given some love to Funk and Swiss’s Swipe Delete stating that he feels as though it will be a HUGE Summer anthem.

Selfie Facts

Now the Swipe Delete guys have blessed us with some rather surprising facts.  However, unsurprisingly they are all based around social media and selfies! There are a couple here that absolutely shocked us.

Making Your Daily Commute More Enjoyable

For many of us, driving to the city for work is one of the most daunting tasks, still it is necessary. You might feel like you are losing an hour or two every day being stuck in traffic, and you will never get that time back. There are, however, some great creative ways you can improve your experience and make the most out of your time behind the wheel. Find out more about them below.

Driving Cars HTKAH

 

Car Share

You might sign up for carpooling or car sharing scheme at work, or find someone you can share a ride with online. You can find apps that will help you find a car share in your region, so you never have to spend time alone dealing with the stress and anxiety caused by the traffic around you. Another person – and even small talk – can take your mind off being stuck in a traffic jam, and you will arrive more relaxed to work.

Podcasts

If your car technology needs updating, you might want to visit one of the dealerships and search for a vehicle that allows you to stream your content to the audio system, so you can make the most out of your time listening to podcasts or learning new skills. Talk to an expert at the Crystal Motor Company about the most suitable city models with advanced Bluetooth and navigation.   

Music Collections

 

If you simply want to feel more relaxed and comfortable while behind the wheel driving to work, and you often get frustrated by the amount of advertising on radio, you can also create your own music collection or playlist for the journeys. This will only take a maximum an hour, and you will be able to choose what to listen to every morning, depending on your mood.

Audio Conferencing

To improve your personal productivity, you might choose to catch up with your team and your employees while driving. While video conferencing is not advised, as you will need to keep your eyes on the road ahead, there is no reason why you should not jump on a call and discuss your plans for the day, so by the time you arrive at the office you can all be on the same page and get started with the work straight away. You just have to find the right car tech to accommodate this feature.

Record Your Ideas by Dictating to Your Phone

It is hard to keep your diary updated while you are driving, and some people will say that your best ideas are born when you simply cannot write them down. If you have a hands-free feature and an advanced microphone in your car, you can record your best ideas and even your to-do list, so you can write them down and remember them later.

 

Daily commutes might seem like a waste of time and fuel, but you can find some great ways to improve your experience and make your journey more enjoyable and more productive, too.

Joker – Teaser Trailer

The new trailer for the JOKER movie has recently been released and it looks INCREDIBLE! We’re talking one of the best films of the year here too. May be even rival the Batman trilogy for the best DC Movies.

From the short instances of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, it looks like he may have absolutely NAILED it. By doing so putting him right up there with Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson. His interpretation of the Joker feels and looks frightening, exciting and absolutely insane. Bat Sh*t Crazy if you must. The stuff of nightmares. We’re all in!

We’re really keen to see the origin Joker story and this teaser trailer has just made us that much more excited.

The trailer to Joker doesn’t give away too much synopsis but what we do know is that it’s based around the origin of the character. It’s a look at how he was birthed into the DC Universe.

As you can tell we’re very excited by this movie and keep an eye on HowToKillAnHour.com.
