Rolocule Games wins ‘Oscar of Innovation’ in Entertainment category
Rolocule Games today announced that its motion gaming technology – rolomotion received the 2014 Silver Edison Award for being the most innovative new product of the year in the Entertainment category at the 27th Annual Edison Awards held in San Francisco on April 30.

The Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academicians and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering and science.
“Our judges recognized Rolocule’s rolomotion as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.
The first rolomotion powered game Motion Tennis was released on the Apple’s App Store last year and immediately reached Top 100 grossing games ranks in over 65 countries.
“We are gearing up for the release of our next exciting game on the App Store that users can play using Apple TV” said Anuj Tandon, COO of Rolocule Games. “We are also working to bring this tech on Android with Motion Tennis, that users will be able to play using their Smart TVs”.
