Khor, on behalf of his team, expressed, “We joined this competition due to our deep interest in artificial intelligence (AI), which is also the theme of this competition. This competition includes a creative entertainment category, inspiring us to develop an AI-based game. Motivated by the Naruto anime, we incorporated the Naruto hand sign and sequence identification to create a fully gesture-controlled game with exciting gameplay.”

He added, “We are very happy to win this competition. This project revolves around AI, Naruto, and games. Success in this competition recognises our effort in integrating fast-growing technology with our interest in the gaming industry. The novel combination fosters further development of this project to the next level. Hopefully, it will be commercially available, with many users enjoying the product in the future.”
