We recently announced that we’d won a W³ Award for our Pizza Hut Interactive Concept Table, and in this edition of Chaotic Moon award-oriented blog posts, we’re excited to announce that we also won a silver W³ award for what we’ve dubbed the ULTIMATE board game: Enter the Gizmosphere!

Not familiar with this killer creation? No problem. Enter the Gizmosphere is a futuristic twist on Pong, in which players are armed with LED paddles and duke it out digitally with a virtual ball in a 90-second head-to-head match. Basically, it’s a pretty cool reincarnation of the classic game, and the most amazing part is that it was created entirely with off-the-shelf parts and powered solely by the GIZMO, a 4×4-inch, 20-volt APU board-running Linux.

(It also won a Horizon Interactive Award. So you know it’s good.)

Now, this is typically the part of the blog when we insert a funny, pop culture-related winning reference or a witty quip, but instead we’re just going to refer you to the musical masterpiece that is DJ Khaled’s “All I Do is Win” because, well…that title pretty much says it all.
