BPN 1679: Mobile and video game John Lennon

I just picked up this news by Ralph Simon from the Facebook wire.

Dateline: Strawberry Fields, New York City
l. to r. Ralph Simon, Mobilium Global CEO, Yoko Ono & Niall Austin, CEO of Butterfly Games celebrating their just signed partnership to produce the first-ever mobile and video game featuring the work, graphics and music of John Lennon. The signing took place at Yoko's Manhattan home in The Dakota Building - John Lennon's piano can be seen in the background. This will mark the first time that any of The Beatles have signed a mobile games deal. "Let's keep that eternal John Lennon flame alive ... by bringing it to the modern generation of mobile "screenagers" and video gamers", said multi-dimensional artist, Yoko.

This is exciting news: the production of a mobile and  a video game featuring the work, graphics and music of John Lennon. The production will be in the hands of a very creative man and his company the Irishman Niall Austin. In the last edition of the World Summit Award Mobile he and his other company Omnimotion Technology was awarded for showing how gesture recognition and motion control technology works. This technology is working on apps that get children interested in sport and help stroke victims recover. It is great to see him accompagnied by Ralph Simon, member of the board of the World Summit.
