Winger received a Global Nomination.
Develop a game that simulates conditions in an off-Earth located permanent or temporary colony. The game could be a sandbox that offers the possibility to simulate various facilities that would support a reduced gravity environment far from earth’s atmosphere and magnetosphere. Users could be given power allowances, atmospheric conditions, and in situ resource options (using resources available on site for life support or other needs). The game could include a variety of scenarios including:
Winger provides offline navigation that can guide a lost astronaut without any external communication. Winger is programmed to continuously monitor and measure the inertial motion of a body from its starting position. These measurements run through our algorithm that generates a relative path of movement in real time. Now if the astronaut is lost, or communication is broken, winger can backtrack its path and guide to the points it has moved in so far. Winger is the future of exploration in both space and land alike. It navigates at a very personal level & it's completely independent.
