The Hair Nah Arcade is a video game about a Black woman tired of people touching her hair. The game is played via motion capture, without the use of any joysticks or buttons. The cabinet was designed and built by Momo Pixel and Death by Audio Arcade.

The original web based game was created in 2017 by Momo Pixel.

The Arcade cabinet is currently located at:

After winning the hands-free open call from Death By Audio Arcade with Hair Nah's arcade concept, Momo began working with the team to bring her concept to life. The Idea: use motion sensors to capture the hand movements and swat away the hands on screen! 

Momo designed a mock-up of the arcade cabinet with a quick 3d look to understand placement of everything and over design. Then began designing the arcade body as Death By Audio Arcade began building the physical body of the arcade and her developer rebuilt Hair Nah in Unity to be compatible with kinect.

While programming continued and the DBAA's developer Dustin Long worked on programming and testing the game motion controls. 

The team worked on the body of the cabinet while Momo created new game assets to update the UI for a more seamless user experience.
