Award Reason

The rotation sensor installed in the game cartridge has changed this gaming device itself into a completely different playing tool. The innovative idea of the work was evaluated highly. The superb combination of the sensor, vibration element, and clicking sound promote a virtual reality experience. By realizing the analog dial operating system, it provides a simple game that everyone can easily play. The presentation is also pop, happy, and fun. In spite of an increased tendency towards major works, it is an elegant product with ingenuity and originality.
