Momentum NY & Colorfield win Gold Stevie for CES 2014 Intallation


June 16th, 2014

Congrats Momentum NY and Colorfield on their Gold Stevie win for Amex OPEN’s CES 2014: The Small Business Big Shot Game (Best Exhibition Display, Stand or Feature)

About the project: Working with Momentum, Colorfield created a one of a kind game experience for Amex OPEN – the American Express Small Business network. The game debuted at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. In addition to the multi-player touchscreen-based game, they contracted Astound Group to build a 21-foot tower to house moving LED light cubes. The cubes moved up and down the tower based on each player’s score.

A single player practice version of the game that runs on iPad allowed contestants to test their trivia knowledge and get familiar with things before stepping up to the main experience. For the game software, they used Adobe Air. The tower controls and LED light cubes were built with Arduino, LEDs and stepper motors. They then tied it all together with a Node.js server to create the experience.
