Neon FM™ is a 5-panel arcade dance game designed to focus to North American musical tastes. The machine was engineered to use a revolutionary capacitive-sensing system which would use the player’s natural electrical field to activate the foot panels, resulting in a more natural dance experience and lowering the maintenance requirements of the machine dramatically. Neon FM was picked up by Betson Enterprises (the largest manufacturer and distributor of arcade machines in the US) and our company (which I operated) was signed to an exclusive distribution contract that was worth millions. Unfortunately, the project was sidelined when our publisher decided to instead proceed with Konami.
