Creative Hack Award

Winner of the Wired Japan Creative Hack Award for Ninchro fight with human beatbox at Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition 2014. Nincroids are organically generated Ninja avatars designed by Japanese animator Seiichiro Shimizu, powered by beats from beatboxers and brought to life through the Musion Eyeliner™ Platform. The beatboxers’ sound is converted into energy which powers up the characters giving them Street Fighter II style moves.  Thanks to the Eyeliner™ Technology the beatmakers were able to join the holographic characters on stage merging the real with the virtual world resulting in a spectacular visualisation of the beat-battle taking place between the two contestants.
