Imagination wins National Multimedia Award for Incredible Machine
Working together with Sam Gazitt , we created a project called Incredible Machine for Maker Faire in May this year. Recently, our partner (Imagination) won the National Multimedia Awards 2008 held in Austria for their innovation 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 somewhere on the fair venue. Then he has to add the building blocks to his collection, come back to the Microsoft booth and compose them to a virtual machine.
