Get Ready To Play With Dice+
My distinct memory of a rolling die dates back to the on-air episode of Mahabharata. Shakuni Mama rubs the die in his hands and limps slightly while walking. I remember growing up with board games like Monopoly, Ludo, Snakes & Ladders and the common theme among these games was the rolling die. I would wait curiously hoping it to be the desired number.
However, the 21st century has changed the world of gaming. It is no longer a compulsion to step outdoors for a fun gaming activity. We have our iPads, Androids and other systems where gaming is available at one touch.
These interfaces have a plethora of games available. They can be board games or digital controllers. I see my kids behave like a digi-ninja as they slice the fruits or play Temple run. The kids are more technologically advanced than us.
I came across this recent development on the digital-gaming front. The Poland's Game Technologies have developed a dice with a universal board game controller. This USB powered dice is capable of displaying numbers in 256 million colors.
This insanely fascinating Dice+ comes with a nice selection of games to get players started. The company promises to add more games coming in 2013 and early 2014, including popular existing board game properties ranging from family-friendly fare to edutainment titles to board game classics. However, its success will come down to future support for other digital board game makers.
Isn’t your idea of holding that dice totally revamped? Thanks to the amazing technological advancements.
