Dice Go Digital With DICE+

You know the saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” I’m not sure developer GIC has heard it. The small startup has developed a set of digital dice called DICE+. It lights up, connects to your digital device via Bluetooth, and automatically detects whatever number you rolled and sends it straight to whatever corresponding game that you’re playing. It even has an anti-cheat system built in, so if you try to purposefully land on a specific number, the roll won’t register and you’ll have to go again. The gadget will work with at least iOS, Android, Symbian, Linux, and Windows… that is, if and when GIC finds partners to help bring it to market.

I am very intrigued. I know I kicked off this post with a snarky comment, but I don’t think I dislike this idea. Sure, it seems totally unnecessary, but there is something inherently fun about rolling a die, especially as opposed to tapping a virtual die on a screen. If you’re not playing a game to have fun, what are you playing it for?
