I interviewed Juha Rytky, the CEO of Ball-IT, in Slush last week. Ball-IT has developed a very cool solution combining a physical object with some motion control technology to become a game control for different platforms. With the recent success of Nintendo Wii, they have decided to go after several platforms such as mobile phones as well as the PC market.
There’s definitely a lot of potential in their technology and a working demo of the product without any glitches whatsoever did play a part in making up my mind. Just as Juha tells in the video, they are currently looking for a set of partners to take their products worldwide – something which in my opinion will determine how successful they will be.
