Award Reason

Among the entries, contents of which were more or less the same and where only the latest software, successors to the previous applications, stood out, this "play" was highly recognized for its new attempts and originality. By using a USB camera as an external device, users can touch icons and designated areas shown on the screen with their own hands and act as a controller. This work allows for more direct and speedy operations and at the same time, provides several mini action games to enjoy, suggesting a new area in games to be explored in the future.
