Philips Shows Board Game of the Future

by Paul Strauss

Taking a page from science fiction films, Philips has been working on this new concept in electronic gaming which allows players to use physical game pieces to interact with video “board” games.

Philips Entertaible

At the heart of Philips’ Entertaible system is a 32-inch touch-sensitive LCD embedded into the top of a table. The system provides a multi-touch tangible interface which allows players to place game pieces on top of the “board,” which can then interact with the images on the screen. The system is still in the prototype stage, but expect to see systems like these turn up in place like bars, casinos and arcades in the not-to-distant future.
