Electronic Board Games
The Human Media Lab has put out a new concept video showing “Electronic board games”, basing several of their ideas on the popular Settlers of Catan game.
This video shows how future boardgames like Settlers of Catan will be electronic. It features a real-time strategy game played on interactive e-paper tiles, tracked by computer vision and operated through projection
While their demonstration works via computer vision and an overhead projector to project the visuals onto the blank white tiles, they do mention that possibly this could be replaced with something more portable like OLED or ePaper.
