Turn swinging cherry sculptures into video game controllers with The Device (and a little magic).

Visitors to the Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) in Chicago play a larger-than-life video game in the Cherry room. By swinging any of eleven large cherry sculptures hanging from the ceiling, players launch cherries into a virtual cityscape and hit moving targets. Each Cherry has an IF Magic Device inside of it, measuring its position and acceleration and transmitting that data to the computer running the game, which is built in the Unity game engine. Instead of taking months to design a custom controller solution - with the Device, they were able to rapidly speed up their production timeline.
