HTML5 provides a tour of The Hunger Games' "Capitol"

The Hunger Games movie site showcases The Capitol Tour for fans

Microsoft and Lionsgate Entertainment have partnered for an innovative web experience for fans of The Hunger Games.

Designed by the Nerdery and Ignition Interactive, The Hunger Games companion site is built upon HTML5 and showcases exclusive content from the director of the upcoming film, Gary Ross.

The HTML5 foundation means that the site is plug-in free, and while the site experience is immersive on all major browsers, the site mainly acts as a showcase of the HTML5 capabilities of Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9.

What the site developer has done to expand the level of interactivity is through the introduction of Facebook personalisation that is integrated into The Capitol Tour.

After registering for the tour using Facebook Connect, users will find that aspects of the experience will light up in new ways specific to them. So if someone is navigating around the Capitol, they may notice their friends appearing on monitors as they arrive or on the screens in the Control Room.

The Hunger Games film from Lionsgate Entertainment is based on a popular novel series by author Suzanne Collins that has been read by 23 million people worldwide.

The official Hunger Games site can be found at: The Capital Tour

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
