Digital Dice Will Keep You From Cheating On Your Virtual Board Games


Board games will eventually all be played on tablets. Say goodbye to the thrill of rolling dice, say hello to a random number generator. Developed by GIC, DICE+ are Bluetooth cubes that bring the tactile joy back to tablet board games.

The concept is pretty simple: the dice talk to your tablet and tell it what you rolled. They carry built-in, anti-cheat detection so no more forcing your roll on your little brother. The dice are supposedly compatible with iOS, Android, Symbian, Linux and Windows, and they’ll reportedly cost between $30 and $40 when they’re out later this year.
