Looks pretty cool. I think semi-translucent miniatures that can carry light / color (think fiber optics) would be really neat to use with this. Imagine a character who is poisoned with green glowing eyes. Someone possessed with red glowing eyes. I can't see it replacing regular tactile boardgames but be a welcome addition to gaming. I actual think it might get people in video games more interested in board gaming.



let me know if this is a repost

Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.

My favorite part:

Looks kinda cool, but having to roll for initiative one at a time was way too slow!

True, but the time saved elsewhere (rolling for damage, determing cover, remembering encumberance or bonuses, etc.) would heavily offset that.

You can also set a lot of this up with a Wiimote, Wiimote whiteboard software and an infrared pen.

Google it and you'll find some examples and possibly the same cool video that I saw.
