Black Ops Cold War: How To Unlock Operation Chaos & Operation Red Circus | Side-Quests Solutions Guide




There are two side-quests you can unlock in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and it isn’t as easy as previous games in the series. You can’t just play them from the big conspiracy board, you’ll have to solve two puzzles. To solve the puzzles, you need to find hidden clues in certain missions.

Not only are the intel collectibles hard to find, the puzzles can be pretty tricky — especially the puzzle for Operation Chaos. If you need help decoding the floppy disc and accessing it, we’ve got a full explanation for the puzzles and locations for all the collectibles for both missions. Doing these missions changes the outcome of your ending in a small way, and they’re full extra missions to play — so they’re totally worth experiencing.

How To Unlock Operation Chaos

To unlock Operation Chaos, you must find three pieces of intel in three missions and solve a puzzle at the safehouse.

  • Intel #1: Nowhere Left To Run – When interrogating Qasim, make sure to talk to him instead of immediately killing him. He’ll give you a piece of intel.
  • Intel #2: Brick in the Wall – Complete the secondary objective to rescue or silence the captured German spy. In the room where they’re held, you’ll find a broadcast intel collectible on the desk.
  • Intel #3: Redlight, Greenlight – In the American Street simulation, go to the bar to the right of the Burger Town. Upstairs, there’s an Russian office with a map on the wall. Take a picture.

How To Solve: There are two parts of the password. Each password is randomly generated, so you have to solve the puzzle. The two sets of numbers come from the “Numbers Station Broadcast” — use this to find each password piece.

First Password: The first part is solved through the Front Page intel. There are letters highlighted in red — these letters form a jumble that can be decoded into the name of a US city. Match the city with the numbers on the Numbers Station Broadcast to get the first password. Input the numbers for the first part of the password.

  • Example: The red highlighted letters on the “Front Page of the Observer” intel are: S, R, N, L, H, O, E, A, C, T
    • Unscramble the letters to get “Charleston” — check the Numbers Station Broadcast intel to get the code [1, 5, 6, 4]

Second Password Part: Look for a pattern on the Coded Message. The red and black have separate patterns. The goal is to find four numbers that correspond to a city on the Numbers Station Broadcast intel.

  • Example: Red Numbers – 44 – ?? – 52 – 56 – 60
    • Answer: ?? = 48 – The pattern is that each number increases by +4.
  • Example 2: Black Numbers – 06 – ?? – 13 – 15 – 16
    • Answer: ?? = 10 – The pattern +4, +3, +2, +1.

The example gets us the code [4, 8, 1, 0] which corresponds to the city Boston. Input the password [Boston] — or whatever city you get.

How To Unlock Operation Red Circus

To unlock Operation Red Circus, you must find three pieces of intel in three missions and solve a puzzle at the safehouse.

  • Intel #1: Brick in the Wall – While infiltrating Kraus’s apartment, enter the living room (where his wife is answering the phone) and look right for a vent cover. Remove it to find this easy-to-miss intel.
  • Intel #2: Echoes Of A Cold War – After separating from Woods, you’ll climb a ladder to reunite and enter a control room with the objective to “Survey the Dig Site” — look right to pick up the intel on the table.
  • Intel #3: Desperate Measures – Found during your stealth mission in the KGB HQ. Can appear in the Records room, Data Entry, or other areas. Check each room if you don’t find it.

How To Solve: Examine the three pieces of evidence — each piece has three codenames (Ex. “Bearded Lady”, “Strong Man” and “Juggler”) — two pieces of intel give you locations, and one tells you whether the suspect is male or female.

Check all three pieces of intel and cross-reference with “Review Subjects” to see their last known travel locations. Use the three clues to match each suspect.

  • Example: Wristwatch Evidence – Bearded Lady visits Rome, Italy. Cassette Tape – Bearded Lady is male. Ledger – Bearded Lady visits Vienna, Austria.
    • Answer: Aaron Lee, Male, Recent Travel List includes Rome Italy and Vienna, Austra.

Go through all three suspects to select all three suspects and complete the puzzle. Select your targets and launch the mission.

Remote Learning Boosting Adoption of Innovative Technologies for Education

By AI Trends Staff  

With remote learning happening for students of all ages during the pandemic area, new technologies incorporating AI—including voice, augmented reality and virtual reality—are being used more widely to enable teaching.   

“Some 1.2 billion children have been out of school during the pandemic year, and that has led to technology driving change in education,” said Robin Raskin, founder of Solving for Tech, moderator of a recent Consumer Electronics Show session on New Technologies Accelerating Education.   

Caitlin Gutekunst, senior director of marketing and development.

Creativity, Inc. provides design and engineering services for toy, technology, and learning companies. Clients include Disney, Netflix, Fisher-Price, Mattel, and Pearson. The company is working on building out new products that leverage voice interactions, said Caitlin Gutekunst, senior director of marketing and development. Consumers today interact with voice assistants on some 4.2 billion devices and the number is expected by Juniper Research to grow to 8.4 billion by 2024, she said.  

“Voice is an interface, a new way for people to navigate and find information more easily,” she said. “Teachers are finding that voice provides new learning opportunities for students,” and can improve accessibility catering to the different learning styles of students, she said. The company envisions voice being used in more devices such as wearables and augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) headsets.  “We believe in binding entertainment with learning to make it fun for kids,” she said. The company developed Toy Doctor, an Alexa skill in which a child works as a doctor to help patients including Fuzzy the Teddy Bear and Rubber Ducky in a musical adventure.  

Melanie Harke, Senior Game Designer, Schell Games

Melanie Harke, a senior game designer with Schell Games, builds educational games using VR and AR. “It is still in an early adoption phase, but once you have a device you can travel to distant lands or practice dangerous procedures in a safe environment,” she said. “Immersion is the cornerstone; it makes it powerful,” she said, enabling it to be used to practice physical activities or improve muscle memory.  

History Maker is Virtual Reality Content Creation Tool  

The company has produced HoloLab Champions, a chemistry lab practice game show, enabling students without access to a real lab to gain experiences. Players are scored on accuracy and safety, helping to prepare them for real lab experiences.  

The company’s newest product is History Maker, a virtual reality content creation tool aimed at middle school students. The game enables students to step into the shoes of a historical figure, such as Ben Franklin, Abigail Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain and Barack Obama. Students create the scene, pick their props, upload and recite their script and export the performance to share with classmates and teachers.  

“The pandemic has accelerated things, with more students participating in remote learning and more effort going into making the experiences better for kids. Having something immersive like VR can help,” Harke said. The company has made progress since entering the education market in 2016, but still, “It is early days for VR in education,” she said.  

Spatial makes a AR/VR tool that can be used to create a lifelike avatar and a virtual classroom where the teacher has the necessary tools to present an immersive experience for students. “A lot of remote learning is happening in work settings. Tools like Spatial will be important to helping people feel connected,” said Aaron Dence, product manager with Spatial.   

The product uses AI and machine learning to “tweak” a two-dimensional selfie photo to create a three-dimensional lifelike avatar. Colleges are looking at the technology to help create immersive learning experiences, such as the streets of Harlem in the 1950s, for a history class at the University of Arizona, and physicians and students working together at Teikyo University in Tokyo.  

AR/VR Education Software Revenue Growing  

Revenue for VR/AR educational software was estimated to be some $300 million in 2020, according to a report by Goldman Sachs, and is expected to grow to $700 million by 2025, according to a report in edu plus now. The quality of content is improving and the cost of hardware is correlating, making the technology more accessible to education institutions worldwide, the report stated.  

Use cases for AR/VR in education include virtual field trips, medical education, and training, classroom education and student recruitment, according to an account from [x]cube LABS.  

For medical education, applications can show complicated processes such as the human brain and visualize the abstract notions in digital reality. It equips students to merge the theoretical and practical parts of lessons. For recruitment, virtual tours enable students to explore the school or university campus remotely, thereby reducing expenses, increasing student engagement and helping them make a decision about the university.  

“Augmented and virtual reality is redefining the teaching and learning process. Immersive technology has the potential of being the most prominent breakthrough in the education industry,” the authors state.

DOCOMO’s XR Studio opening in Odaiba, Japan to include the new Mantis Vision Volumetric Studio 3iosk




In Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality News

January 21, 2021 – Mantis Vision, a provider of 3D image and volumetric video capture solutions, has today announced that its ‘Mantis Vision Volumetric Studio 3iosk’ volumetric video capture technology will be included within DOCOMO’s new ‘docomo XR Studio’ in Odaiba, Japan when it opens later this month. DOCOMO is Japan’s largest telecommunications company.

Esta Chiang, Volumetric Pipeline Technical Director of Mantis Vision, said: “Mantis Vision has seen many new volumetric video content creations this year, and we’re excited to see what new applications emerge from the new 3iosk Studio”.

Volumetric video capture utilizes an array of cameras to record people or objects in motion from all angles, in order to turn them into realistic 3D holograms. The resulting digital content can then be viewed from any angle on mobile devices and computers. The technology is already in use in a range of industries, including entertainment, sports, music videos, and gaming.

The Mantis Vision Volumetric Studio 3iosk captures dynamic 3D volumetric videos that can be shared as 3D assets in augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), virtual production or social media. With its small footprint and no green screen or render farm required, the Mantis Vision Volumetric Studio 3iosk is designed for use in commercial settings including retail stores, museums, events, theme parks and shopping malls. Based on patented technology and proprietary Volumetric Cameras (VoCams), Mantis Vision states that its Volumetric Studio 3iosk setup has “the fastest workflow from scan to share, with exceptional data quality and an easy-to-use interface.”

The Good of Buying used Commercial Vehicles




There is one thing every business person knows; time is money. While buying a new brand shows your business has grown financially, there is a lot of time-wasting in the process than just getting a used vehicle, and the business keeps going. However, when you’re looking to buy a used commercial vehicle, when looking for exceptional used trucks for sale, check out professionals for best deals. Professional dealers in used Cars like TRADUS will help you seamlessly get the best of your money by buying a used car you’ll never regret. Let’s dive deeper:

  • Reduces Cost

Well, in business, money is the glue that binds success. Buying a used vehicle means paying less for something that may be in an excellent position plus, vehicles are machines, and machines are like humans; the more the body is used, the better it adapts to the world. One of the marvelous things about owning a used vehicle is the opportunity to buy a brand you may not have owned when new.

  • Low Rate of Depreciation

This is a paramount perk. Used vehicles are typically affordable, but the ice breaker is that you can get a car in good condition, which you may use and still enjoy newer technology and economical fuel usage others enjoy with new brands.

  • Guarantees

Buying a used car sometimes comes with exceptional guarantees, such as time for testing the vehicle, and if it’s not worthy, you may return it and only pay commission on the days you used it. Believe it or not, this is something new car dealers never offer.

  • Reliability

Does it a ring a bell when you hear about the past where cars like the Old Ford LTD rusted after decades? Well, that isn’t something you can walk to a car showroom and find a new brand that’d take years to rust and more. For something like enjoying a reliable vehicle, buying a used vehicle or used trucks for sale that might be the model from makers who make lasting cars is an excellent option.

Yes, that right. Be sure to buy a car that has been used, and the owner can assess the vehicle’s monumental ability and more. Today, a new brand such as SUV, trucks, and vans don’t last long.

  • Enjoying CPO opportunities

Thanks to the low price of used vehicles, you’re about to enjoy the benefits of leasing than buying the car entirely, and sometimes, you don’t need all the money for you to get home with your vehicle. Most used car dealers allow about three- and more-year terms of leasing. However, although this is excellent, be sure to face restrictions on mileage and more.

  • Keeps the Vehicle Well-Cared for

Due to the restrictions, a vehicle on lease stays in the best conditions for a long time. This is a magnate that boosts business, especially if your used car is for ferrying passengers who often prefer vehicles that look excellent and well-cared.

Cons of Buying a Used Commercial Vehicle

While there are many benefits, below are some of the downsides a used vehicle may come with.

  1. High Maintenance Cost

Buying a used car cheaply doesn’t genuinely mean it’s cheap. Unless you carefully inspect the vehicle, you may invest more in maintaining it, which is sometimes expensive.

  1. Lowers Brand Identity

Business is about building a mirror that helps you become a brand people like and want to work with. Buying a used car for a reputable business may lower your company identity for people to think you’re losing glory or going bankrupt.

Excellent Tips to Embrace when Buying Used Cars

Before buying a used vehicle, keep the following in mind:

  1. Stay on your Lane

Instead of wanting a brand that’d affect your budget or sometimes cost more than a new brand, stay off wanting to buy a brand above your lane.

  1. Decide all by Yourself

Friends and family may want to share their opinions but if you’re looking to get the best-used vehicle, depends on what you really want and go for it.

  1. Focus on your Goals and Objective

Knowing what you need to do with your used vehicle is the first step to success. When you’re buying a used commercial car for business, such as supplying goods or passengers, things like seats and vehicle conditions matter.

Buying a used commercial vehicle is riskier and trickier than buying a new brand since you don’t know for sure where that vehicle has been and how it has been treated.  However, as the saying goes, You don’t buy something for nothing,” buying a used car comes with benefits everyone can embrace and save money and time. The good news is, if you know what you want, a used car is better than a new one. Think about leasing, guarantees, and affordability and you’ll be thinking about a used commercial vehicle over a new one.
