+10 Electronic Dice Barbarian Gauntlet: -$70 to Budget

by Lambert Varias

Last year we featured SparkFun’s guide for making an electronic dice gauntlet. The instructions are still available online, but if you have more money than electronics know-how, check out this very similar product from ThinkGeek, which was probably inspired by SparkFun’s DIY project.

Just like the DIY gauntlet, this one can also roll a variety of dice when you flick your arm while wearing it. It can simulate a 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, 12-, 20- or 100-sided die and even roll two dice at once.

Aside from being furrier than SparkFun’s gauntlet, this version can also be used as a clock, a stopwatch and a timer.

The downside to this gadget is its price. ThinkGeek is selling it for $70 (USD), which might make it unappealing to all but the high rollers.
