Blade is a multi-player 3D racing game created for Ford’s 2010 Detroit motor show.
Players stand on a controller disc in front of one of 5 screens and by shifting their weight from side to side, race against each other down the track.
The game needed to be instantly playable by a wide range of people, but still be fun and fast.
It went down well and has traveled to other motor shows including Geneva.
