February 1, 2016 – Lviv, Ukraine – ELEKS’ recent digital project, a multi-device WebGL virtual reality game, was recognized as the Mobile Site of the Day on January 30, 2016 by the Favorite Website Awards (FWA) program. Back2Pack was developed as the company’s interactive greeting for the holiday season. The game is a mix of enticing gameplay with an ingenious technical solution, using a smartphone and with Google Cardboard serving as its screen, and a second smartphone used as the game controller.

FWA recognizes outstanding digital work with the aim of giving maximum exposure to the most future-thinking, progressively-designed sites that have implemented cutting-edge technology, together with inspirational ideas. FWA’s evaluation criteria include creativity, originality, design, content and personality.

“The award is an important accomplishment and a strong incentive for the whole ELEKS team”, commented Oleg Gasioshyn, Creative Director at ELEKS and the inspirer of the project. “In our in-house R&D lab, we continuously experiment to break new ground and refine our expertise with cutting-edge technologies. Our game is the first digital experience to combine WebGL, virtual reality and two mobile devices. We are honored that our work was recognized by one of the most reputable web awards”.

This is ELEKS' third award from the FWA. Previously, the company’s Google Glass Experiment, which demonstrated the use of Google Glass in sports, was selected Site of the Day, and its 3D car interior preview website was listed among the winners of the Mobile Site of the Day category.
