Incredible Machine wins an award!
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!
