The team from CMU shows us their project, a version of D&D that runs on the Microsoft Surface. Earlier we dispatched a few orcs before coming into this cave and encountering.... well what will in the next build be a mini-boss.

http://vimeo.com/9361738 I found this very interesting. I don't think its been posted, anyway if it has I am sorry. Check it!

Hopefully that tech catches on. Would be nice to have some kind of device that worked a bit differently than a normal PC or gaming console.

Imagine a bunch of people sitting around and playing turn based role playing or strategy games that play like the classic pen and paper or board games (D&D and Avalon Hill games) with all of the number crunching, sounds and effects of modern games.

How freaking awesome. :lol:

I want one of these now...

EDIT: Wow!

The .pdf order form for one of these things has the price at $12,500. :eek:
