Every evening from 20:30 to 24:00 (German time), a video projection in front of the store displays models wearing the lingerie.

The project is a collaborative effort by the newspaper "Bild Zeitung" and C&A.

Unity 1 Applications
The following applications were all created with Unity 1.

tridam is a multiplayer game that combines the rules of checkers with rock, paper, scissors. you move your rocks, paper and scissors around the board like checkers pieces. to take your opponent's piece, your piece must win the classic rock, paper, scissors contest. it's a seriously challenging and addictive twist on checkers.

a few notes on how to play: to move, you click your piece, then click an open square. to take an opponent's piece, you click your piece, then click the square *on the other side* of the opponent's piece. if you can possibly take a piece, you must take it--you won't be able to make any other moves.

flash developer/designer riccardo deponti implemented the game based on an idea by maurizio borsani, with help from enrico deponti.
