About Santa Claws
Liberty Games has today announced the launch of its Santa Claws arcade claw machine. It allows visitors to take control of a claw machine in real time, viewing the action by webcam. Players have 45 seconds to grab a cuddly toy and drop it in the chute.
Each toy has a cash value. Every single one that is safely placed into the chute is added to the tally. After Christmas, Liberty Games will donate all of the money raised to NHS Charities Together, the federation of NHS charities in the UK.
Stuart Kerr, Technical Director at Liberty Games, the man behind the creation of the machine had the following to say:
“It started as a fun project to see if we could integrate an old claw machine into the Internet of Things. The technology is Raspberry Pi-based and uses a webcam to show players game footage in real time. It didn’t take many games to realise Santa Claws’ fundraising potential, so we decided to use it to raise money for the NHS.”
“As for next year, I can’t say too much, but we have a lot of amusement and arcade machines around the office and I’ve got my eye on one in particular.”Stuart Kerr, Technical Director at Liberty Games

Help out in such a fun way and raise funds for the NHS Charities Together.
2020 has been such a difficult time for many of us, not only this but has put our NHS under extra strain. For me, they have coped incredibly well under the circumstances and the way they have handled the Covid19 pandemic.
Any help for the NHS is always needed, more so now than ever before so the staff and service can continue providing help and support and also improve the care that is essential to many across the UK.
