Life was not permanently exterminated, however, as Zero Dawn was successfully completed and implemented before the end. Within 100 years after the extinction of life, GAIA succeeded in brute-forcing the swarm's deactivation codes and transmitted them worldwide, shutting the robots down. Within another 100 years, global flora, some fauna, and finally humans, were restored.
HADES fixedly sought to carry out its protocol of destroying the biosphere even though the process had no errors and had thus succeeded in restoring life to the planet. It was stopped, however, when GAIA willingly chose to self-destruct in order to stop it, denying it the terraforming hardware it would have used. HADES therefore devised a new plan: it would use the long-deactivated Faro Swarm. In possession of the swarm's activation codes, which it knew from its existence as one of GAIA's subfunctions, HADES sought to reactivate the swarm worldwide and allow it to consume the new biosphere as it did before. If allowed to do so, life would again be rendered extinct, but this time with no means of reversal.
To do so, it formed an alliance with a lone wandering maverick Banuk named Sylens. With Sylens' instructions, HADES presented itself to the Shadow Carja (who had seceded from the main Carja tribe over a succession dispute and resulting civil war) as the Buried Shadow of their faith, forming a cult known as the Eclipse to do its bidding. It enlisted Sylens in its service by providing him with then-ancient pre-extinction knowledge, which he craved. After eventually betraying Sylens, HADES induced the Eclipse into organizing and launching a full-scale assault on Meridian, allowing it to access one of the transmission towers GAIA had used to broadcast the deactivation codes to shut the swarm down. It intended to use this tower to broadcast the codes to reawaken the swarm. It almost succeeded in doing so, managing to reactivate some of the robots. It was defeated and its plan foiled by Aloy, a member of the Nora tribe, who had been created by GAIA using genetic material from the by then long-deceased Dr. Sobeck specifically for the purpose of stopping HADES and eventually rebuilding and rebooting GAIA.
With HADES' defeat, the Faro Plague remains deactivated. Nearly all of its robots remain buried all over the planet. Nonetheless, it has been demonstrated that all that is needed to reactivate the swarm is a broadcast of its activation codes from one of the towers used to broadcast the codes that deactivated it. Furthermore, while HADES was defeated, it was not destroyed, and thus will use the codes to fully reactivate the swarm, with the ensuing consequences to life on Earth, if allowed to do so.
In Back to the Future: The Ride, Doc, who now lives in a lab called the Institute of Future Technology, had created an 8-passenger DeLorean that can fly just like the original DeLorean (which can be seen in the ride and in the outside display) and the Time Train (which can only be seen in display outside of the attraction). Unlike the original DeLorean, the flux capacitor is in the front of the cockpit along with a small screen, the time circuits, the keypad, and the speedometer. It is also equipped with a sub-ether time-tracking scanner that allows Doc to pinpoint the location of the original DeLorean in time. The original DeLorean is shown to have its original "OUTATIME" license plate instead of the bar code license plate, but it could just mean that this DeLorean is actually a new one being built into a time machine. Doc can be seen traveling in the original DeLorean in the ride's queue videos. In the attraction, Biff Tannen (who stowed away in one of the institute's time machines that had recently visited 1955) steals the original DeLorean, prompting Doc to send the riders to the 8-passenger DeLorean and use it to go after Biff. The ride begins with the 8-passenger DeLorean traveling to 2015 Hill Valley where it chases Biff across the town. Biff and the riders then travel to the ice age where the 8-passenger DeLorean experiences a temporally engine failure after Biff causes an avalanche that damages it. The 8-passenger DeLorean catches up to Biff in the Cretaceous Period. Biff's DeLorean gets damaged by a T-Rex and lands in a volcano while the T-Rex swallows the 8-passenger DeLorean, but spits it back out. The 8-passenger DeLorean lands in the lava and follows Biff as he goes over a cliff. The riders then bump into him, sending both DeLoreans back to 1991. In a post-credits scene, Clara Clayton, who has built the Time Train with Doc, reveals to have currently repaired the DeLorean and travels back to 1947 to a farm.
Belgian beer brand Stella Artois designed another amazing brand activation experience. The winners of this brand activation received a hotel booking with everything desired for a memorable journey, including its products. This brand activation also featured interesting and surprising elements, like a call from actor Liev Schreiber and a virtual chat with Andy Cohen. Considering coronavirus spread, Stella Artois' brand activation uses the idea of travel in a safe, sanitized place.
Revolve is another global brand that runs experimental campaigns accompanying influencers and popular figures. In a novel experience, Revolve invited many influencers to a carnival in LA and started to travel around the world. Revolve carnival combines surprising elements with popular influencers to make a unique experience. This brand activation campaign became successful as it provided a different, amazing experience.
Brand activation should be fun and contain surprising and innovative elements to engage people effectively. Depending on the activity of the brand, several solutions are available to communicate with more customers and achieve the target audience.
The first() function picks out the first element from a sequence type, like a list. The code works the same independently of the type of the elements of the sequence. Still, you need to track the element types so that you know the return type of first(). 2b1af7f3a8
