Incredible Machine wins an award!

clip_image001[4]

A project one of our partners, Imagination, created for Maker Faire in May just won the National Multimedia Award in Austria under the “culture, entertainment, and games” category.

This multiuser game puts the focus on Windows Mobile smartphones. Using them as interaction devices, visitors can search and collect pieces of a virtual "incredible machine". The user has to look for markers (2D barcodes) hidden throughout the fair venue. He/she then has to add the building blocks to his collection, come back to the Microsoft booth and compose them into a working virtual machine. This game takes advantage of the power of Windows Mobile devices, combining it with backend services and the Windows client desktop to deliver a very rich gaming experience.

It was a ton of fun over at Maker Faire in San Mateo in May and great to hear they won an award for their efforts!

You can find out more about this project and watch a video over at their site.
