Frogs (film)

Frogs is a 1972 horror film directed by George McCowan. The film falls into the "eco-horror" category, telling the story of an upper-class U.S. Southern family who are victimized by several different animal species, including snakes, birds and lizards, as well as the occasional butterfly. Nature, the movie suggests, may be justified in exacting revenge on this family because of its patriarch's abuse of the local ecology. The film was theatrically released on March 10, 1972.

Frogs (video game)

Frogs is a single-player action / platform arcade game released by Sega- Gremlin in 1978. It is the first video game with a jumping character (predating Donkey Kong by 3 years), which by some definitions could make it the first platform game. The player controls a frog on lilypads and attempts to catch (with the frog's tongue and while jumping) various insects ( butterflies and dragonflies) worth different amounts of points in a set amount of time.

Frogs is one of the first arcade games to include a static background as part of the arcade cabinet. The game’s graphics are "projected" by laying the monitor flat on its back and reflecting the computer-generated graphics of the frogs and flies toward the player via a mirror at a 45-degree angle. (The game’s graphics were actually generated and shown backward, so the mirror reflection would show letters and numbers properly.)

FROGS (rebreather)

FROGS (Full Range Oxygen Gas System) is a make of rebreather for frogmen using oxygen, which has been used by the French Navy and the Commando Hubert since 15 October 2002. It is made by the diving gear manufacturers Aqualung.

Its working parts are in a dark-blue streamlined rounded shell. It can be worn on the front or on the back. It is rated as duration on a filling: oxygen 4 hours or more, soda-lime 7 hours at 21.1° C (70°F).

It is 48 cm = 19.2 inches high, 30 cm = 12 inches wide, 19 cm = 7.6 inches thick. It weighs 14.2kg = 31.3 pounds out of water

If the rebreathing loop fails, it can be switched into open-circuit mode bypassing the breathing bag, as bailout.
