America is not just a superpower in terms of economy, technology, and military weapons. It is also a global force when it comes to size, natural beauty, and lifestyle brands. It is one country in the world that almost everyone, whether from an urban area or a remote area, has heard about it. People might not know other nations, but they can surely speak a word or two about America. Its global icons such as the Statue of Liberty, the Golden Gate, the White House, the Empire State, and the Hollywood sign are familiar to all. American brands such as Coca-Cola, Apple computers, hot dogs, and Levi’s jeans are so loved by the world that the turnover of the manufacturers of these brands is higher than the annual revenue of several small countries.

US visa information

Foreign nationals trying to visit the United States need a visa to pass the entry point check. They can only visit the United States without a visa if their home country has signed an agreement for U.S. Visa Waiver Program. In such case, an electronic passport for 90 days of visit has to be obtained. However, being qualified for the Visa Waiver Program doesn’t guarantee an admission to the U.S.  Some foreign nations still may be ineligible for admission to the U.S. In that case, they have to apply for a nonimmigrant visa minimum three months before the travel date.  In any case, holding a visa is not a guarantee that you will be allowed an admission to the country at the port of entry, be it the airport or the border. The decision to allow you an entry will rest with the immigration authority. You can check with http://www.usvisa.ae/ about your eligibility and other terms and conditions for obtaining a U.S. tourist visa.

Places to visit in US

The United States is quite a big country. To visit the entire country, you will need lots of time and money. It is also not possible to talk about the places in this excerpt. However, you can still enjoy the diversity of its landscape by visiting a few famous regions. There is no need to travel and stay in big cities when there is a lot for you in small towns and cities. If you wish to start with an iconic city, then New York City is the best place to start your exploration with. This city is large and impressive in every sense. From its size to population, to culture, and finance, it has a vibrant history. There are several famous iconic structures in this city. You can call the New York City as the heart of America.  To see the entire city, you will at least have to stay here for some weeks.

If you move towards toward the north and explore the Mid-Atlantic region, beautiful landscapes and countryside hamlets will amaze you. This region too has big cities like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and the famous sight popular as Niagara Falls. To the west is the Great Lakes where you can explore the lively cities such as Chicago and Minneapolis. Then, there are enchanting and less-explored lakeshores in cities like Michigan and Minnesota, where you can pack your bag and go for a picnic.

To get a feel of America’s history, visit Washington, D.C., the capital of U.S. Some of the most important and largest museums and monuments in the country are situated here. To the south of the Washington, D.C. is Virginia, which is nicknamed the tobacco country. One part of Virginia has an important historical background, whereas the other side of its west is famous for coal-mining and natural treasures.

If you admire the rugged natural beauty that are ideal for trekking and skiing, then the Montana’s Glacier National park and Sun Valley of Idaho. If you want to see the wonderland in America, then Alaska is a beautiful place where icy towers and great mountains will spellbound you.

U.S. attractions

The United States is like a huge canvas on which a melange of colorful scenery is painted. Every region, whether it is the Northeast, Midwest, South, or the West are strewn with breathtaking sights. Most of the incredible sceneries in the world are present in the vast land of the U.S. If time is the problem in exploring all the regions, here are a few U.S. attractions you can visit.

Grand Canyon:

Grand Canyon, USA

This natural wonder is in Arizona and is a result of over two billions of the continuous flow of the water from the Colorado River supported by its tributaries, cutting the rocks layer by layer, uplifting the Colorado Plateau and forming steep cliff walls and ledges. Visitors can stand on the rim of the canyon and look down a few miles below the canyon floor. They can also view the cliffs and ridges as far as their eyes can see. It is 446 km long, 29 km wide and 6093 feet deep.

Niagara Falls:

Niagara Falls, USA

Three waterfalls namely Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls flowing through the province of Ontario, New York, and Canada, merge and creates this gigantic waterfall called Niagara Falls. No waterfalls in the world spew as much of the water as the Niagara Falls. During the winter, the quantity of water flowing down is reduced since some quantity of water is used for producing hydroelectric power. However, no one can witness the difference.

Statue of Liberty:

Statue of Liberty,New York

This iconic statue is the universal symbol of freedom and the largest in the world. It is one of those symbols that the world instantly recognize it. It is installed in New York Harbor and stands 152 feet tall in height. You can view it from any points of the city. There are tickets in case you want to tour it from inside.

White House:

White House USA

This is another iconic building of the United State and the symbol of power. It is here where the most powerful person in the world – the President of America resides during his or her tenure. It was built twice – first in 1792 and then in 1818. You can take a tour of this influential official residence by booking a tour three weeks in advance.

Walt Disney World Resort:

Walt Disney World Resort

This is one of the top tourist attractions in the United States ideal for children, adults, and families. It is a huge amusement park that will easily take an entire week to enjoy all the attractions. There are theme parks, water parks, shopping centers, theaters, restaurants, and everything you would like to enjoy.

Hotels in U.S.:

Best Hotels in USA

No matter what the season is, the United States is thronged by visitors either for business or vacation purpose. You can find budget hotels, luxury hotels, and historic hotels in U.S. Even the cheapest hotels provide basic amenities as well as clean, and safe rooms. Such hotels are equipped with comfortable beds, TV, telephone, and an air conditioner. Though cheaper on rates, these hotels accept on-line reservation.

If you are traveling by a car and just need a room to rest for the night, the traditional motels along the highways are the best option. The motels may not be as good as compared to the hotels in cities, but they are affordable and can solve your purpose.

Best time to visit U.S.:

Traveling to the U.S. in a specific month of the year has its own advantage and disadvantage. For example, if you want to spend less on accommodation and want to avoid the crowd, then winter season from January to March is good for you. However, due to constant snowfall, access to tourist places are hampered. Anyway, you can enjoy lots of indoor activities in cities like Chicago and New York in the winter. If hiking and sailing are your choice of vacation, then visiting the southern region of the U.S. in the winter is best. Since the climate varies from region to region in U.S., the best time to visit can be decided accordingly. For this, take an advice from a destination management company that offer U.S. tourist visa services.

Artistic vehicles for delivering staircases


In the modern world of social media and mass publication, it’s difficult to stand out as a brand or a unique business unless you have an unlimited budget and nationwide advertising campaigns. A Mid-Wales based staircase manufacturer has used its in-house design team to come up with some more inventive ideas for getting people to talk about their company and recognise their brand. One of their more ambitious projects recently was to purchase a new fleet of vehicles, each with its own unique and highly creative design that should arouse the interest of most people who see them on the roads.

Pear Stairs manufacture and supply a comprehensive range of staircases and stair parts, and deliver them across the UK. They are a trading division of the builder’s merchant’s Boys and Boden who have been trading since 1895, so they have a strong history and plenty of experience. Recently the company has found its sales have been increasing and they felt that they should make the move from using a third party courier service to having their own transport fleet of dedicated vehicles that can also be used to advertise their brand across the country.

Plain delivery vans were used by pear stairs until they designed their own unique advertising for them

The project began when the company acquired three brand new DAF 7.5 tonne curtain sided vehicles that were used as a blank canvas for the company’s lead advertising designer, C. Harper, to unleash her creative talents. She was given the simple brief of “Do anything you want as long as it’s amazing” by the company’s managing director, D. Hammond.

A grand staircase represents an example of a stunning architectural feature

Ms Harper has many years of experience as a designer, beginning her career by studying art at Central St. Martins College in London. She decided the concept for the designs would be to “pique the curiosity of the viewer by making the images both blatantly obvious and cunningly obscure.” Which created a beautiful juxtaposition for her to work with. There are no direct references to the company name, instead, it is referenced through the imagery on each vehicle, taking the basic idea of ‘pears’ and ‘stairs’ and working them into various scenes in a unique and visionary way.

Artwork inspired by pears and stairs

The ‘pears’ and ‘stairs’ theme has been used with drastic effects on these lorries by intertwining them with familiar artworks through word play. Works that are referenced include Damian Hirst’s controversial piece that was featured in his exhibition for the 1995 Turner prize, which he won, ‘A Mother and Son Divided’, which has been turned into ‘A Pear Divided’. Johannes Vermeer’s iconic ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ has become ‘A Girl with a Pear Earring’ via a quick change of jewellery. Salvador Dali’s ‘The Persistence of Memory’ sees its melting clocks replaced with melting pears to transform it into ‘The Pear-sistance of Memory’. Other influences can be found from Magritte’s ‘Son of Man’ with its falling fruit and the impossible stairs of Escher’s ‘Relativity’.

Impossible stairs on delivery van

These vehicles have been running since the end of 2015, covering around 75,000 miles per year as they deliver a comprehensive range of bespoke and standardised staircases and stair parts across the UK. Pear Stairs transport manager, C. McNamee, said “As the business has continued to grow we felt that running our own fleet of vehicles would give far better control and flexibility over our distribution plans”, while at the same time the company is marketing its brand by inciting the viewer to really think about what they are seeing, and hopefully encouraging them to link these interesting, and sometimes abstract, images with the Pear Stairs brand.

Delivery fleet for delivering bespoke staircases across the UK

Additions to the fleet were made throughout 2016 with a van, suitable for delivering smaller stock, that was inspired by Star Wars and the sci-fi genre generally that features space imagery and pear-shaped spaceships. As well as a third lorry that was aptly inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s vision of earthly sin and religious retribution from ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’, and was on the road just in time to mark the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death.

While Pear Stairs continue to grow as a company, with new technology that allows them to produce staircases in all shapes, styles, and materials, including glass and curved stairs, taking on more designers and craftspeople each year, we look forward to seeing what treats their design team will come up with next. But, in the meantime, we can see C. Harper’s design skills being spread throughout the trading divisions and branches of Boys and Boden. Their Broughton, Chester branch of builder’s merchants has a number of installations designed by Ms Harper decorating its interior and exterior, and you’ll certainly notice the lorry she designed for their plumber’s merchants, Plumbline, as it takes their killer whale logo and turns it into a 3D model that appears to be trying to escape the vehicle.

Digital Marketing Trends to Watch out for in 2017


However, none of the above has been used to describe the upcoming digital marketing trends for the year 2017 in this article. Instead, past readings in marketing have been researched and the expected future developments in top digital marketing predictions for this year have been put together. Any digital marketing company in Delhi or across the globe will see changing trends this year in 2017 for the digital marketing industry as described below.

Rise of Videos

2017 will see an explosion in online videos. It will be raining videos everywhere over the Internet and specially on mobile screens. At present more than 50% of data on mobiles is already being dominated by videos and this trend will be seeing a sharp rise in 2017. The social media giant, Facebook has planned to add a ‘videos’ tab in their apps.

As the time spent on mobiles and on social media continues increasing, videos will be a phenomenal growth channel in 2017. Infographics and visual content might be quite popular. However, video marketing will become the best bet for online users who are on the run. Undoubtedly, creating and distributing video content in 2017 will be a major trend for marketers this year. Live videos have become the favourite of consumers and so has live stream.

Behaviour based emarketing

It seems that the year 2017 will be all about behaviour based emarketing. Consumers have become increasingly aware of the number of spam emails they receive in their inbox. If they think that your email is not useful for them, they will not open it. This result in an entire wastage of efforts and cost associated with the email marketing campaigns. The best solution to combat this problem is to segment your email list based on behaviour of consumers and to send targeted and customized emails meant for certain group of consumers.

Increase in PPC and Local Paid Campaigns

It has been predicted that the organic listings will decrease considerably and PPC as well as local paid ads will gain momentum this year in 2017. A SEO company in Delhi or in any part of the world can apply organic search as well as pay per click ads for increasing ranks of their client websites on search engines. Now, as per predictions, Google will gradually have only top few organic ranks on the search engine results and will get a sustained amount of search traffic especially for information oriented websites. In 2016 itself, there had been a constant rise in audience targeting features and this year in 2017, now marketers will be able to make best use of this feature.

Audience targeting options are being integrated into Adwords and other such platforms. Ads will be targeted by age, behavioural signals and other such factors with emphasis on demographic targeting options. Audience targeting will gain as much significance as keyword targeting and will play a quite significant role in crafting a strong PPC strategy.

Voice Search

Voice search is fast becoming quite a common feature for young consumers as they have started spending more time in using various mobile apps. Voice Search will constitute more than 50% of all the searches on major search engines. This will totally revolutionize the entire concept as people will speak whatever they want to search instead of typing it in the search box.

Every brand needs to understand the latest trends of the consumer’s behaviour and the way they voice their search. The types of words used are different from how searchers type in the search box. Apps should be integrated with voice search in order to produce conversions.

Mobile will be dominating the traffic

The amount of consumers using mobiles for accessing the Internet now outweighs the number of consumers using desktops. Mobile search will continue to be dominant this year in 2017 which underlines the necessity of bringing in responsiveness as one of the most important factors for websites. This is a vital factor to ensure that you don’t lose your customers. Key mobile word searches continue to be significant. Mobile only Social Apps also have begun to be used extensively and are an inherent part of mobile marketing strategy. Monitoring social channels becomes an indispensable part of a company’s mobile marketing strategy.

14 Marketing Myths That Aren't True


1.    Our number of social media followers matter. Whilst having 12k Twitter followers might look like the best thing since sliced bread, if they’re not engaging with your brand, they’re pointless. Instead, focus on gaining valubale, relevant followers. 

2.    Once we’ve got to page #1 on Google, we may as well go home. Achieving a top SEO ranking might have numerous benefits, but it’s only the first step. Maintaining this ranking and increasing website conversions should be the next thing on the list. 

3.    TV advertising is dying out. Although I’m guilty myself of entertaining this idea, there is little if not no evidence to suggest TV adverts will soon be a thing of the past. What is clear however, is that the format of TV advertising is evolving everyday. 

4.    What works for our competitors will work for us too. Taking inspiration from others is always a good thing, copying them isn’t. Find out what works best for you, and keep on doing it!

5.    Our website already looks fine, we don’t need to change it. Your website is your shop window, so keeping it fresh and updated is crucial to engaging your audience. Small but regular updates can prove very succesful. 

6.    Email marketing is outdated. Did you know that 72% of people actually prefer to receive a promotional message via email than social media? As long as the message is carefully crafted, email marketing can do wonders for your business. 

7.    We should be on as many social media channels as possible. Even though social media might work wonders for your business, you should take the time to work out which channels are best for you. For example, whilst Facebook might be good for restaurants and bars, it might not be the best for a consultant. 

8.    Content marketing is the best form of marketing. Although curating content undoubtedly has its positives, creating for the sake of creating never worked for anyone. Content marketing needs clear, measurable goals. 

9.    The more we communicate with our audience, the better. In a world of advertising, consumers don’t want to be bombarded with marketing messages all hours of the day. Concentrate on quality instead of quantity. 

10. You can’t measure marketing. Whilst the ROI of some traditional forms of marketing are still notably hard to uncover, digital analytics mean that we can track the success of online adverts, email campaigns, social media campaigns and so on.

11. The more people that visit our website, the more succesful it is. This takes us back to the same age old question if 10k people are viewing your website but leaving straight away, what’s the point? It’s all about quality not quantity. 

12. Our website doesn’t need to be responsive on mobile. Not only are responsive websites rewarded in terms of their SEO ranking, they also provide a massively improved user experience meaning your customers are likely to spend longer engaging with your content. 

13. Our audience wants to read lots of content about who we are and what we do. It’s simple, people get bored with reading text very quickly. Replace lengthy paragraphs with engaging images, videos or even gifs to ensure you don’t bore your audience. 

14. Once you’ve got enough customers, you don’t need to invest in marketing. Unless you can be certain that you’ve got enough customers to maximise your profits for the forseeable future, you can’t underestimate the power of marketing. 

The conclusion? Whilst a lot of what you read and learn in the big wide world of marketing will notably be true, or have some element of truth to it, some things will be wholly incorrect and based on a few bias experiences. 

If in doubt, stick with what has been proven to work for you before. Many marketing ‘experts’ will continue to claim that the marketing landscape is changing at a fast rate, and that many more traditional methods of communication are becoming obsolete. My advice? Don’t believe everything you read.

How To Save More On Your Internet Connection


Having a high-speed internet connection has been something that used to be associated with something that was usually found with geeks and individuals who had to spend a lot of time in front of the computer or online. Having high-speed internet access is more than a utility in the current digital age. Just like all utility providers, ISPs or Internet Service Providers strive a lot to get the most revenue by customizing their internet packages and services according to market and industry trends. They struggle tooth and nail to tailor their services and strive to provide you the best services at competitive rates. Following are some best practices that one can implement and enjoy high-end broadband services at a control cost:

1. Don’t Accept Any Offers Unless They Are In Black And White:

Providing Broadband Internet services has become highly competitive where everybody is struggling to provide cost-effective services. This is especially the case in areas wherein there are more than one providers. I was offered by my former ISP rep a discounted plan but when we received our first bill, we realized that it was not what we were actually told by the service’s representative. The guy who is talking to you on the phone is going to flood you with numerous offers and discounts and lure you to sign up, while the billing department would deny the same from their end.

2. Always Ask For The Economy Level Service:

Paying an additional amount to get a high-speed broadband internet service is equally as beneficial as it is for ordering utilities like high-speed water. This is found amidst a large population or users. Individuals don’t think about the availability of broadband and that its speed is always more than that of dial-up services. Broadband is always on and it is faster than dial-up. Bottomline: There’s no need for an upgrade in most instances. In fact, there is a chance that your provider might offer you slightly slower speed internet connection at a lower rate. ISPs don’t advertise their lower rate services because they have so complicated regulatory agreements.

3. There Is No Need To Pay Extra For Installation:

Many cable and phone companies sell their installation services which are hardly ever needed. Even if you never had a phone or cable service, the company does the outside wiring without charge anything extra. The next thing that is required is a phone or a cable technician visiting your place and get the inside wiring done. This is easy enough for you to do the inside wiring yourself.

4. Never Rent Your Modem:

A long time ago, I read about an individual who had been paying a lot more than the actual cost to rent an old phone. The same thing can happen to you when you get your Internet bills and there is the “Equipment Rental Fee” which increases over the time. If you’re getting a modem on rent you need to conduct a quick search on your modem price on Ebay or on Amazon or any other online shopping platform. You can even get a list of compatible modems so that you have different options and models to consider from. This way you can purchase your own modem at the cost of the rent you could have paid.

5. Look for Advantages on Promotions:

Internet providers provide you with all amazing introductory offers for a certain time. At the end of the offer, it doesn’t mean that the prices should rise. If this happens, all you need to do is contact your ISP and inform them that you’re deciding to cancel the service. At that moment you’ll see that out of nowhere you’ll become eligible for some other promotion.

6. Complain For Outages On Timely Basis:

There might be a time when you’ll experience outages and Internet getting disconnected unless you are provided an outstandingly perfect service. Don’t accept anything without receiving something in return. Like many companies, you are provided an opportunity to save money by complaining to your ISP. Try to keep a log of the problems and ask for a statement credit whenever there is a service outage or even if you are experiencing a slow connection. There is no need to pay more for a considerably fair Internet Service.

7: Evaluate the Cost and Benefit for the Service Offered:

Always know what you are getting for the amount you’re paying for. When it comes to evaluation you have to consider the benefits that you’ll get on the agreed amount. For instance, I use the Cox Internet Service at home and, they are the best thing that I could get on the amount I am paying. Being a high-speed internet connection, I get a speed of around 15 Mbps with a downloading speed that is 100 times faster than a dial-up connection. And if you need a temporary boost on your downloading speed, you can get a PowerBoost tool that does the magic for you. Not only this but also you get the best security tools, as well as email addresses, online storage, and many other features, are provided to you at a reasonable price. 

We can conclude here by saying that being a consumer, it is your right to get the best services at a decent price. Users should be made aware about all the hidden cost and users should also keep track of all the cost and benefits accompanied with a particular connection. Stay vigilant and save more on your internet connection.

Ten reasons why students should be given homework


5 Sure Tactics to Getting Class Assignment Done Before the Deadline.

All class assignments have specific deadlines that students have to meet. Occasionally, failure to meet the deadline is the surest way to attract bad and low grades. Most lecturers and professors assume that those students who fail to meet the deadline are lazy, have low concern for their studies or are indiscipline. However, this is not always the case because at times students are so busy with other things or they are overloaded with bulk assignments. It can be quite frustrating when one fails to meet the deadline unintentionally.  The following ideas will act as assignment help that will enable you to write your assignment as per the required time.

1.    Organize a homework list.

Sometimes students fail to do their assignment because they have so much homework.  It is quite normal to forget since a human being memory doesn’t always recall all that is necessary.  Moreover, one can be busy at school, home or a part-time job. All this are some reasons that make it possible for students to get late to do their assignment. Therefore it is necessary for a student to have an assignment list that will make it easy to remember that they are expected to do a particular assignment.

The assignment list should be written as per the assignment urgency. This will enable one handle those assignments with the closest deadline fast and later the others. Also, with the assignment list, a student should be able to estimate the amount of time required for them to deal with an outright assignment. Therefore, they can plan the study time necessary and use it well.

2.    Avoid Procrastinating.

We all tend to postpone things that we don’t feel like doing today or things that are difficult. This is common when one has to deal with a challenging assignment. A student may opt to keep on postponing certain assignment and forgetting that postponing doesn’t make it easier. Procrastination is always a mistake no matter how hard or demanding an assignment is.  Tackle assignment with immediate effect if you are sure you can’t handle late then seek 3. Assignment help.

In most cases, whenever someone decides to postpone something today, it will not be difficult to do the same tomorrow and also the next week. As a result, time is up the deadline is here and you have not completed the assignment. Procrastination may not seem bad at the moment but when we realize we are late to do certain things in life we start to regret at times we realize when it is too late to fix the undone.

3.    Make a schedule.

It is advisable for students to come up with a time plan whereby they can set aside the specific hour in a day to deal with school work assignments. A student can go ahead and set his or her deadline that is before the school. Above all, the most important thing is to adhere to the schedule you have set because on the contrary, you are just like any other student with no plans to do their assignments. It makes things better you can use rewards or incentives to act as motivation example watching a movie or game once through with assignments.

4.    Consult When Having a Difficult assignment.

Some students fail to meet the assignment deadline because they have been trying all by themselves, realizing they have made a mistake they start all over again which wastes a lot of time. The fact is some assignments are quite challenging for students to comprehend that’s why it is not wrong to seek for assignment help. One can consult the lectures friend or professors. Since all these will offer limited assignment help, then a student can ask assignment help companies like www.essaypaperdom.com. Whereby, one can be provided with ideas to deal with the challenging assignment or do the assignment for an affordable price. By doing so, you will be assured of good work which will be presented before the deadline.

The Nintendo Switch Really Is Three Decades of Nintendo Consoles in One Device


After months of waiting with bated breath, Nintendo fans across the globe finally received more, mostly-finalized details on Nintendo’s new and upcoming console, the Nintendo Switch. There’s a palpable amount of apprehension surrounding the Switch, mixed with an equally significant amount of excitement. After all, the Nintendo Switch is unlike any home console we have ever seen. That, in itself, is part of Nintendo’s general ethos, but also its Achilles’ heel.

Back in October, I noted that the Switch is likely Nintendo’s all-or-nothing gamble. Given how much effort the company has been putting into making this console a success, including what is arguably a marketing ploy through manufactured scarcity with the NES Classic, it’s clear Nintendo is going to do what it takes to milk every dollar out of its fanbase. That includes finally bending to market pressures and applying pay-to-play subscription fees for online multiplayer.

A Family of Gaming Systems

What is perhaps more striking than paid online multiplayer, and perhaps another notch in the argument that Nintendo is betting the farm on this new console/handheld hybrid is the repeated claims Nintendo is making about the console’s ancestry. Unlike other consoles, in which the company has, for the most part, advertised as solid, unique devices in their own right, Nintendo’s General Director of Entertainment Planning & Development Division, Tatsumi Kimishima, instead had this to say at the reveal in Tokyo:

“Nintendo Switch has inherited DNA from each of the many hardware systems Nintendo has released to date.”

There was no subtlety in this statement as well. Kimishima went on point out different hardware systems in particular and their defining features. Here are the exact details on his statements:

  • “The Nintendo Entertainment System included two controllers in the base system”.
  • “Game Boy made it possible to bring video games out of the home”.
  • “Super NES added the X and Y buttons and the L and R buttons to enhance the fun.”
  • “Nintendo 64 offered the world’s first analog control stick and it introduced a rumbling controller with the development of the Rumble Pak.”
  • “We put a handle on Nintendo GameCube so it could be carried around. Even at that time we were considering a home game system that you could take with you, but it seems we were a little too soon.”
  • “Nintendo DS added a touch screen.”
  • “With the Wii remote, motion control became possible.”
  • “And the Wii U Gamepad allowed you to play games off the TV.”

According to Kimishima, Nintendo has “packed each and every one of these features into the system.” Although the Nintendo Virtual Boy is conspicuously missing from Kimishima’s rundown (unsurprisingly, as it was Nintendo’s worst-selling and shortest-lived console to date and one the company doesn’t even include with its official sales figures), there’s undoubtedly some of that console’s “DNA” in the Nintendo Switch, given the Switch has clearly been designed to be virtual reality-ready.

That said, does the Switch truly contain the DNA that Kimishima claims? Let’s examine each claim, and match it to the upcoming Switch hardware design.

Two-controller design from the NES

This one seems like a rather obvious progression. Nintendo’s controller design on the NES is well-regarded. That said, the original NES controller arguably borrowed from the NES Game & Watch, which preceded the NES console by several years.

With the Switch, Nintendo emphasizes the dual controllers once again. Each Joy-Con, Nintendo’s name for the new controllers, can detach from the base and be utilized as a small, individual controller. It’s easy to see how this design is a modern play on the classic NES style.

Taking your gaming on-the-go like Game Boy

This is perhaps the most obvious piece of “DNA” Nintendo has placed in their new Switch console. Still, it’s hard to say that Nintendo exactly invented mobile gaming. Many single-game devices existed before the Game Boy, although the Game Boy was undoubtedly the first true handheld gaming console. Nintendo followed that success with an entire family of Game Boy devices and their newer DS (or Dual Screen) handhelds.

X and Y, L and R

Every console gamer, regardless of which console they use, owes Nintendo a debt of gratitude for its controller innovations. The four-button right-hand design with the right and left bumpers was a Nintendo invention, first introduced with the Super Nintendo. That design has since become standard across all video game systems, save for the Nintendo Wii, which pared back that design in place of its simpler motion controller.

The Switch incorporates a controller design that is more similar to the SNES than to a more modern controller like those found on the PS4 or Xbox One. This may actually be to the system’s detriment, as both the Sony and Microsoft consoles utilize dual bumpers on both sides, a feature that is increasingly integral for high-level FPS games.

Nintendo’s inclusion of the core design is on both Joy-Cons, in such a way that it is still comfortable for both players, is going to be integral to its success, but the overall lack of complexity in button design may limit how many major 3rd party games the system receives. True, Nintendo is selling a Pro controller with the Switch, but given this is an additionally purchased accessory, many companies like BioWare and Activision may hold off on developing games for the Switch.

Nintendo 64 DNA: analog stick and controller rumble

To be frank, Nintendo did not invent the analog stick, despite Kimishima’s rather surprising claim to the contrary. In fact, the Neo-Geo championed this design back in 1994, 2 years before the launch of the Nintendo 64. The structure of the Nintendo 64 controller was also questionable, with the third leg or arm effectively dying with the device. Still, Nintendo has since included a joystick with all of its consoles, with the exception of the Wii.

The Rumble Pak, however, is one of Nintendo’s greatest, and most mimicked, achievements. Adding rumble sensitivity to the controller added a layer of realism to video gaming not experienced since video games were first invented. This piece of Nintendo DNA now lives in every major console’s controllers, and indeed is a standard in all of Nintendo’s console hardware designs.

Nintendo has upped the ante on this one for the Switch with its HD Rumble feature. The HD Rumble includes multiple vibration motors that are capable of working independently of each other. Furthermore, each Joy-Con has multiple sensors that allow players to feel fine vibrations in intricate detail. During the Tokyo presentation, consumers were shown what this means: the ability to jingle the Joy-Con with the feeling of ice cubes jingling in a glass, or the feeling of water pouring in a glass.

To date, no other system has a controller that can express this much physical detail from game to hand. Here’s waiting to see how this piece of Nintendo DNA translates into actual gaming experiences, although this is one piece of tech that makes a VR addition to the Switch seem far more likely.

The GameCube’s portability

While Nintendo did not exactly put a handle on the Switch like they did with the GameCube, the DNA, in this case, is in the concept. Kimishima mourned the fact that the idea of a portable home console was a bit ahead of its time. In reality, porting around the physical Game Cube was just a bit too ungainly. One had to cart the discs, however, small they were, as well as all of the cords and controllers. It was portable, sure, but not any more so than any other console. Nintendo has taken the idea of a portable home console and placed those dreams into the Switch. The ability to attach the controllers to the device and carry it away as if it is handheld, but still maintain most of the power and functionality of the device is revolutionary.

Will it work beyond the gimmicky feeling, however? That’s hard to tell this early on. The battery life (3-6 hours, depending on the game) is not exactly stunning. And although you can use it with a USB-C power cord while on-the-go, that could get troublesome if you utilize it for the far more interesting feature: 8-way local multiplayer. This, in fact, is going to be the true benefit of this portability. Wirelessly connecting up to 8 portable home consoles for local multiplayer? This is Nintendo’s strength, something they’re trying to maximize to their full potential with the Switch. In a world where the major game consoles have simply dropped local multiplayer altogether, Nintendo is staying true to that ideal — even if it has to fight that battle alone.

The Nintendo DS touchscreen

This is a pretty cut-and-dry piece of DNA. The Nintendo DS was the first Nintendo console with a touch screen. The company followed that up by including a touch screen on the Wii U Gamepad. Now, it combines the power of a DS with that of the Wii U Gamepad, delivering a capacitive touchscreen similar to what you’ll find with your cell phone. This functionality was not shown off at the Tokyo presentation, and few reports exist of what this looks like in the wild. Hopefully, more details will emerge of how Nintendo hopes to bring this to life in the future.

Motion Control from the Wii

Nintendo is one company that has seemingly hated the idea of the sedentary lifestyle. Most other game consoles have given up that fight with gamers, instead focusing on games that don’t require you to go anywhere. Nintendo has shirked that trend for a long time, and even more so since the early 2000s with the Wii. Now, it continues that trend. The Joy-Cons each possess motion controls, with motion sensors includes and IR sensors similar to those found on Wiimotes. It’s clear Nintendo has no intention of dropping motion control anytime soon.

Off-TV play with the Wii U

The Wii U’s primary distinguishing feature from the Wii, outside of slightly improved graphics, was the Wii U Gamepad. No Nintendo console’s DNA lives more strongly in the Switch than this piece of hardware. Indeed, with the Joy-Cons attached to the tablet device, one wonders why the Wii U’s Gamepad didn’t just look and feel like that in the first place. By comparison, the Wii U gamepad almost looks childish and ancient. Sadly, the Wii U is only a few years older than the Switch, making the Wii U look just as much a sad failure as its sales figures suggest.

A Bright Future — or a Dark One?

Nintendo’s emphasis on the idea that the Switch is a culmination of everything they’ve done so far leads to the idea that this is a last-ditch effort before the company switches more fully to its more solid handheld business. The merging of handheld and consoles certainly makes sense in a more mobile world, but it’s a hard act to pull off given how distinctly different those two worlds are these days on the hardware spectrum. It’s clear Nintendo believes it can bridge that gap in a realistic, powerful way, which, if true, will ultimately change the home console game. It’s been years since Nintendo has shaken up the console market in a realistic way. The Switch may do just that. Or it may be the last nail in the coffin for Nintendo’s struggling home console division.
