Ouya, a revolutionary new gaming console, came into being with a bang: with $8.5 million raised via Kickstarter, it became the second-highest-earning project in the website’s history at the time. Once developed, Ouya needed to present itself to the world, so they called us. We created a giant model of the console as a custom prop, which acted as a wall, background, and stage.

Ouya’s CEO revealed the new console by stepping out of a 16ft version of it—not a bad way to create some visual recognition! One Hat One Hand designed, fabricated, and installed the platform inside a city-block long event tent, along with gaming consoles and custom pedestals. We designed it modularly to be taken apart and reassembled in case of future events.

After a successful launch, Ouya returned to One Hat One Hand to commission a mobile unit for promotional tours. We converted a 20 foot shipping container to create a trailer-based plug-and-play unit that can be opened and set up by two people within an hour.
