Coke Zero teamed up with the James Bond franchise to tease the Skyfall, the 23rd installment in the 007 series. They’ve orchestrated an elaborate stunt for unsuspecting train passengers to win exclusive tickets to see the movie. The stunt challenged people to race to a certain platform within 70 seconds, all the while dodging cliche movie obstacles throughout the busy train station.

Skyfall opens in in theaters November 9th.

Microsoft is attempting to use the xBox Kinect technology to develop the future of television. Sesame Street, as it exists now, is already very interactive, prompting kids to sing, count, learn and play along with the characters on screen. However, by using the Kinect to remove the controller, it allows children to easily participate directly in the on screen adventures. Microsoft is focusing their efforts on the education side of this technology by teaming up with National Geographic in addition to Sesame Street. Check out the link below to see a “vision” video that showcases the early stages of the technology with insights from some of Microsoft’s higher-ups.
