The line between video games and board games is blurring more and more as time goes on. Take, for instance, augmented reality. There's different items that can make 2d items pop up into 3D and figuratively come alive on your tabletop. That's what we have here with Tilt Five, a new holographic tabletop that's up on Kickstarter now. They show people playing both video games and board games in whole new dimensions.
From the campaign:
Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you. Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board. This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before.
"When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake. We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart." Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO
The campaign's more than 2x funded (and considering that they were looking for $450k, that's not an easy feat) with still 26 days left to go.
