Picoo “Innovating Play” is the first game console to be played outside. It’s meant for children and adults to play outdoors in a group. Each player has one device, which can scan the game cards and synchronize with nearby Picoos to play the game together.

Fourtress is closely involved in the embedded software development (including device drivers) of parts of the software for the game controller. The challenge is to make it a robust game controller that can take a beating. In addition, it must work anytime and anywhere and… There is no screen!

Techniques and tooling that are involved include RFID chips, firmware, device drivers and battery management.
