Rakuten Institute of Technology launched the interactive game "DYNAMITE BOAT RACE Inning," playable at the Rakuten Kobo Stadium Miyagi. The app has adopted the smartphone-related technology that was developed by Rakuten Institute of Technology, and can be played between innings on the giant LED screen during Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles home games. This is the same technology that has been used for "WallSHOP," the digital shopping signage that is in use at Rakuten Crimson House.
Check out this video for an overview of Rakuten's first try at providing a real-time game as well as the background of its development.
