Icarus

Icarus

In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. The main story told about Icarus is his attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. He ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and the melting wax caused him to fall into the sea where he drowned. The myth shares thematic similarities with that of Phaëton—both are usually taken as tragic examples of hubris or failed ambition—and is often depicted in art. Today, the Hellenic Air Force Academy is named after Icarus, who is seen as the mythical pioneer in Greece's attempt to conquer the skies. Icarus's father Daedalus, a talented and remarkable Athenian craftsman, built the Labyrinth for King Minos of Crete near his palace at Knossos to imprison the Minotaur, a half-man, half-bull monster born of his wife and the Cretan bull. Minos imprisoned Daedalus himself in the labyrinth because he gave Minos' daughter, Ariadne, a clew in order to help Theseus, the enemy of Minos, to survive the Labyrinth and defeat the Minotaur. Daedalus fashioned two pairs of wings out of wax and feathers for himself and his son. Daedalus tried his wings first, but before taking off from the island, warned his son not to fly too close to the sun, nor too close to the sea, but to follow his path of flight. Overcome by the giddiness that flying lent him, Icarus soared through the sky curiously, but in the process he came too close to the sun, which melted the wax. Icarus kept flapping his wings but soon realized that he had no feathers left and that he was only flapping his bare arms, and so Icarus fell into the sea in the area which today bears his name, the Icarian Sea near Icaria, an island southwest of Samos.

Icarus Ascending

Icarus Ascending

Icarus Ascending, (Oper Tune Ity) limited is a company created around one simple idea. To truly develop repeat business, companies must create a bond which extends beyond the first visit. To that end, they must embrace any available resource including state of the art technology. Historically, businesses have used smiling friendly salespeople, atmosphere (paint, fixtures, music), value and, of course, product. Starbucks® is perhaps a very good example of all these elements. Knowledgeable, friendly salespeople in a warm, inviting atmosphere that plays "hip" music, at levels just loud enough for customers to hopefully identify. Many customers don't say, "I'm going for coffee." They instead say, "I'm going to Starbucks." One thing that most, if not all businesses dealing with the public have in common is background music. In fact, even high rise elevators are now equipped to play it.
Clearly, music plays a powerful role in the human experience. Further, Music Enabled Cellular Phone sales are experiencing exponential growth.Here then, resides the opportunity for Icarus. The company has developed a dual application using available technology so that one of two things happens when a customer walks into a business or, for that matter, any environment that uses music. Imagine that the customer walks into, for example, a bakery and is greeted with music he/she has residing on their smartphones. Better still, imagine if the bakery "read" the customers Pandora®, Spotify®, Roxio® or similar provider's playlist. The bakery would pay a nominal twenty dollar per month license fee and has substantively raised the customer's comfort level. Or, a customer going into a neighborhood bar who, if he/she is the only customer, listens to a playlist of music they identify with. The idea works in a "queue." If a second customer comes in, they are next in the queue. The possibilities are almost endless. Recently, Pandora did a deal with Toyota® wherein it is available on Toyota's automobiles if the user turns on Pandora on his/her car radio. How much more interesting/valuable would it be if the customer had to do nothing and the radio read his/her smartphone? Icarus intends to explore the Detroit auto market for opportunities along those lines as well. Icarus is aware of the enormity of its market universe. Department stores such as Bloomingdales offer multi license opportunities. As a young woman goes to the shoe department and hears what she likes, a man in menswear is experiencing something he can relate to. The passenger back of taxi cabs, shopping carts, high rise buildings, hotels, all under license are contemplated. Hotels would welcome the ability to have a customer check into his/her room and be greeted by music they like. The same would certainly be true when the guest is by the pool. Imagine the number of dentists in just the United States with one or more examination rooms and the relaxitive benefit of the patient being able to listen to music that makes them calm or happy. Considering the low cost of the Icarus license, the dentist is more than likely paying more currently for the magazines in the waiting room. The market universe just in U.S. elevators is staggering. "The best alternative (to understanding the size) is to poll the various jurisdictional and industry associations and ask them to provide an estimate based on their known records, a knowledge of units that have been installed, based on reasonable recorded data. That was the method used to obtain the data estimates indicating that more than 900,000 elevators and 50,000 escalators operate in the U.S. An estimated 10% of that number operates in Canada. This is believed to be a reasonable number representative of the changing nature of the new installation market as estimated by the National Elevator Industry, Inc. (NEII [www.NEII.org])." The business side app is contemplated to do more. Whenever a customer calls in using a smartphone, unlike the previous boring "music o

In Varekai, rather than drowning in the sea below him, Icarus lands in a lush forest full of exotic creatures.

Walt Disney Animation Studios

Walt Disney Animation Studios

Walt Disney Animation Studios (WDAS), sometimes shortened to Disney Animation, is an American animation studio that creates animated features and short films for The Walt Disney Company. Founded on October 16, 1923 by brothers Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney, it is one of the oldest-running animation studios in the world. It is currently organized as a division of Walt Disney Studios and is headquartered at the Roy E. Disney Animation Building at the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, California. Since its foundation, the studio has produced 58 feature films, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) to Frozen II (2019), and hundreds of short films. Founded as Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in 1923, renamed Walt Disney Studio in 1926 and incorporated as Walt Disney Productions in 1929, the studio was exclusively dedicated to producing short films until it expanded into feature production in 1934, resulting in 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, one of the first full-length animated feature films and the first one made in the United States. In 1986, during a large corporate restructuring, Walt Disney Productions, which had grown from a single animation studio into an international multimedia company, was renamed The Walt Disney Company and the animation studio Walt Disney Feature Animation in order to differentiate it from the other divisions. Its current name was adopted in 2007 after Pixar Animation Studios was acquired by Disney in the previous year. For much of its existence, the studio was recognized as the premier American animation studio; it developed many of the techniques, concepts and principles that became standard practices of traditional animation. The studio also pioneered the art of storyboarding, which is now a standard technique used in both animated and live-action filmmaking. The studio's catalog of animated features is among Disney's most notable assets, with the stars of its animated shorts – Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto – becoming recognizable figures in popular culture and mascots for The Walt Disney Company as a whole. Walt Disney Animation Studios is currently managed by Jennifer Lee (Chief Creative Officer) and Clark Spencer (President), and continues to produce films using both traditional animation and computer-generated imagery (CGI).
