Someone Has Been Attacking The Battlefield 4 Servers

Having trouble joining the fight in Battlefield 4 over the weekend? Might be because DICE’s servers are a virtual battlefield of their own right now.


Wireless Dice Guarantee Tablets Are The Board Games Of Tomorrow

You can already get beloved board games like Monopoly on your tablet that provide a somewhat similar experience to the original cardboard sets. But they’ll never fully replace those old versions, because they lack the tangible satisfaction of grabbing a pair of dice, going through your shaking ritual and tossing them across the table — oh wait, what’s that? Scosche just released a set of wireless dice that work with tablets and smartphones? (Throws Monopoly in the garbage.)


Dungeon Dice Let You Roll An Imaginary Adventure

Role-playing board games like Dungeons & Dragons are known for their overly complicated multi-sided die. But this particular set turns the dice into the actual dungeon, letting players discover a new random challenge every time they roll.


Electronic Dice Gauntlet Takes You Into Dangerous Uber-Nerd Territory

What’s most surprising about this incredibly nerdy fur-covered electronic dice gauntlet that ThinkGeek is now selling is that it’s not the first of its kind. Back in February of last year we brought you a similar creation, although that version was strictly DIY.

Is It Possible? Role Playing Dice Just Got Nerdier

If you assumed nobody could top a classic D20 for sheer nerd equity, you assumed wrong. Builder Itay—who confesses he is new to Dungeons & Dragons—thought he’d improve the sport by cobbling a variable-number die out of two 5×7 led displays, a Freescale accelerometer and love.

This Dice game is by far the coolest game I’ve seen, and it’s got amazing tech inside which takes advantage of the iPhone’s sensors like no other app. Here’s how it works: You shake the iPhone and it rolls the dice inside, which you use to play poker. But instead of using some dumb random number generator, it captures your hand’s motion and rolls simulated collisions between the virtual dice. This game is great but its just a sampling of the tech from Fullpower, the company Philippe Kahn, creator of the camera phone in 1997, has been developing in stealth for 5 years until today. Yes, this is the tip of a giant iceberg full of gadgets exactly aware of what we’re doing with them at all times.
