8th Entertainment Division Excellence Award


Electric play equipment [Japan]

KUROUME Tomoaki,
Representing the PICTOCHAT development team

Reason for Award

I am sure that everyone has the experience of passing hand-written notes around the classroom behind the teacher’s back at elementary school. PICTO-CHAT is a communication tool that brings back such memories. Because of its simple operating method and responding speed, almost as fast as real time, the users can come up naturally with various ways of communication. This tool has reminded me of the fun of communication.
