A couple of fun updates today to share with y'all.

First of all, our contest came to an end so we're delighted to announce the winners of our 'What would *YOU* do with a Ringbow?' challenge.

The 2 community winners who received the most likes are:
Amy Sourpatchkids and Sam Rios. Well done! Thank you for the great ideas and to your friends who helped you winning!

And our “Team Favorite” pick is: Joshua Zimmerman.

Joshua, we heard ya and are happy to award you a Limited Edition Kickstarter Ringbow for you and your classroom... we're very much looking forward to see what you and your students do with it, and we'll be keeping an eye on the sky for that blimp.

All 3 winners will receive the prize of a Limited Edition Kickstarter Ringbow!
We were so impressed with everyone's fantastic, creative ideas for how to use Ringbow, and just because the competition is over it doesn't mean you can't keep sharing your ideas and suggestions.

In addition, we're thrilled to welcome 2 new game developers that support and make the most of the Ringbow functionality. Both studios will be adapting their games to Ringbow, bringing lots more functions and complexity to the game play. 

Let's hear what they have to say....

From StoneGoose Studios, an independent game development studio.
"So why are we excited by Ringbow? Imagine if Ringbow had been around at the time of 16 bit games. What developments would have been made? With Ringbow we can combine the sweet simplicity of the old games with a brand new way to play games. This is innovation that is not based on graphics power. We can't wait to start developing games for Ringbow, games that look and feel like the games of the old days but come with a unique new way to play".


From Inertiactive, the multi-platform game GraviDrop goes Ringbow. Allowing users to be the masters of gravity, GraviDrop deeply incorporates Ringbow into its gaming experience by using the device to manipulate and alter the different types of gravity that the user can select. This creates an almost three dimensional experience by adding that physical touch, and freeing up much needed space on the screen at the same time. GraviDrop's unique gameplay looks like it was meant for Ringbow and we really think it was. With that said, GraviDrop meet Ringbow. Ringbow meet GraviDrop.

Thanks again for taking part in our competition and have a great 4th of July weekend.

Efrat and Saar

      Wow! Thanks Ringbow team! I can't believe you picked my comment to win! I'm sure both my students and I will get a massive kick out of having a Ringbow in the classroom!
