The Humble Dice Is Dragged Into The 21st Century By DICE+

Dice+ is designed to bring the age-old device into the digital age

Dice+ stays true to the six-sided form factor of traditional dice, but it adds the ability to interact with smartphones and tablets using Bluetooth to deliver a blend of old fashioned game playing on a new fashioned platform.

Dice+ is designed to work with iPad 3 and 4

The device packs quite a bit of technology into the space behind its six LED displays. An in-built magnetic field sensor allows Dice+ to detect its orientation while a proximity sensor lets it know when it is being touched and an accelerometer allows it to detect movement and acceleration. These sensors allow for accurate rolls as well as helping prevent cheating (because it knows if it has been rolled properly).
It is compatible with Android 4.0 and newer, as well as the iPad 3, Dice+ has a range of up to 15 feet, which seems like more than enough, since most gamers will be playing near the device to which they are connected.

Playing a game while using Dice+

For the time being, the list of supported games available on Apple's App Store and Google Play is modest, with staples like Backgammon included alongside less well-known games such as This Way Up, Bella & Max, and others. The company plans to release more games throughout the year, and it is calling for developers to create more games for the device.

Rolling Dice+ on a tablet

Dice+ is priced at €$39.99. A battery designed to last about 20 hours is included.
