The concept that decreasing atmospheric pressure predicts stormy weather, postulated by Lucien Vidi, provides the theoretical basis for a weather prediction device called a "weather glass" or a "Goethe barometer" (named for Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, the renowned German writer and polymath who developed a simple but effective weather ball barometer using the principles developed by Torricelli).
PREFACE to first edition. THIS BOOK was to be an autobiography. I was made into a computer fifty years ago. I was the second scientist ever hired by IBM, and I watched the Watsons on Olympus, and Bill Norris and Ken Olsen and Gene Amdahl, and a thousand great commercial and academic figures.
Bloopers (at the time, called "Bloobers") first appear in Super Mario Bros. generally in the water levels of the game beginning in World 2, where they follow Mario continuously, although they cannot touch the ground, a drawback that persists in later 2D games.
Super Mario Sunshine is the first game to feature the Chain Chomp with a realistic linking chain rather than loosely-connected orbs or rings as seen in the older games. It is also the first game to feature the character's current design, albeit with a large X-shaped scar on its forehead and yellow rings around the eyes.

A machine (or mechanical device) uses power to apply forces and control movement to perform an intended action. Machines can be driven by animals and people, by natural forces such as wind and water, and by chemical, thermal, or electrical power, and include a system of mechanisms that shape the actuator input to achieve a specific application of output forces and movement.
