Urban Evolution | Our Warmup is Your Gym's Workout Parkour (“Park-oar”, or maybe “par-core” but never “park hour” and if you try and put “hardcore” in front of it, we’ll punch you) is a training methodology which focuses on movement in both natural and urban environments. The focus is to move over, under, around, and through obstacles elegantly, and with efficiency. So maybe you’ve heard of parkour before, and even seen some pictures or videos labeled as parkour, but what exactly is parkour? This video might help you understand! It’s not strictly defined by any particular workout or conditioning regimen. It’s more about finding the way to keep improving and eventually reach your greatest physical potential. So it does have its philosophical side, but here at Urban Evolution, we’ve come up a variety of ways to challenge you and hone your skills in a safe and fun environment. Urban Evolution offers many other classes as well. To get started, sign up for one of our 2-Hour Intro to Parkour sessions.

Microsoft’s vision of the mobile future is astounding (video) A new video created by Microsoft shows how the company imagines technology will progress in the future, with mobile devices and interactive touch screens playing an even bigger role in our lives. The 6-minute video, titled “Productivity Future Vision (2011),” is a sequel to a similarly themed video from 2009 with the same title. Each video shows hows technology adds value and real-time information to help us communicate, pursue projects and do business. Not only are the videos insightful but they’re just plain cool. The new video includes several ideas we’ve seen recently, such as small touch-screen phones that relay incredible amount of information two ways, a Siri-like helper that’s activated by voice and touch screens on things like refrigerators and office-focused displays. Many different concepts are on display as the video shifts from person to person, and the scenes connect in one world-spanning story. Watch the amazing full video below:
