Battlefield Bad Company is a first person shooter for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. It keeps an amazing amount of statistics about its players, including a score, levels, a kill count, and many other things. The bfbcs.com site has a good listing of these, in a moderately accessible format. It also offers the Battlefield Bad Company Stats API, so programmers can add this functionality to their applications.
The Sensetonic WoTkit (Web of Things kit) API enables developers to integrate its "WoTkit" sensing platform used to connect objects to the Internet. The idea extends to engaging "end users as ‘participatory sensors’, allowing our customers to offer new and revolutionary services." Sensetecnic's API joins a handful of at least 6 APIs related to the internet of things in our API directory.
Holidays and restful breaks are an important part of maintaining a happy and healthy lifestyle, and there are a lot of services out there that help to make holiday planning easy by eliminating the need to search through reams of accommodation options. The problem is, as much as the information offered online is extensive, it doesn't always guarantee that the chosen hotel will live up to how it's been portrayed in the pictures or that it will provide the desired experience. Escapio is a German booking portal that takes online hotel booking a step further. The service categorises it's hotels according to lifestyle criteria and accommodation types; all hand-picked, unique and of a specific quality standard. Escapio also makes this data available via the Escapio API.
