Teamed with the Ark Systeme company, we created the Babyfoot 3D, a new generation of babyfoot. You have the real feeling of a babyfoot, the only difference is the playing field: it becomes a touch screen on which the ball can be detected. This opens up the game to many possible games and interactions.

We designed the technology behind the ball detection. It is a flexible system named Touch that does optical recognition (based on infrared data analysis) to generate multi-touch events. The engine of Touch is based on C++ and Qt 5, to ally performance to a cross-platform application (Touch runs on Windows / Linux / Mac).

The Babyfoot 3D project participated in 2016 to the Lépine contest in Paris, where it won a gold medal.
