Both companies have agreed to build a global membership service for various devices including personal computers, smartphones, and Nintendo consoles. This is a smart move for Nintendo as people increasingly turn to mobile phones and social networks to play games.
In technical terms, Nintendo will acquire about 15 million DeNA shares or a 10 percent stake. In return. DeNA will acquire about 1.759 million Nintendo shares, or 1.24 percent of the company. Both acquisitions are worth 22 billion yen, or $182 million, due by April 2nd of 2015.
The service is set to launch in the fall of 2015.
The Mimo Smart Baby Monitor comes with three machine washable cotton kimonos, available in different sizes ranging from 0-12 months, with a spot for the attachable device in the kimono that sends the data to your smartphone.
This is something that would definitely be nice for parents who want to go out together for a night or are traveling and baby has to stay home with a nanny or babysitter. In my opinion, it may be a little much, but the product got great customer reviews.
