This will be a much bigger discussion about two years from now.

Today, however, we will soon be able to look at a Kickstarter that is testing one fascinating future online or local gaming technology.

I've been hoping for something like this...many years now. Best of luck to the developers, turning their idea into a business.

Whether or not this particular techie toy is the one I eventually use, who can say? I definitely want these capabilities, and they sure seem like a good fit for many Steve Jackson Games products.

Sure hope the cost goes down so more people will consider trying it.

Not sure this is the appropriate forum for this, but anyone interested in that would likely be interested in this KS as well (I have no investment myself, the linked article just reminded me of it).

There's also "Teburu", with CMON putting their existing games library behind it. Seems like a good match to the platform: you get miniatures to look at, and the rules can get arbitrarily complex with an app running the game.

(Personally I like to play a boardgame or a computer game. But lots of people seem to like these things.)

Thanks! Those look like more great options for online multiplayer tabletop gaming, the holovision system especially, Mook. I'm really looking forward to trying something like that with my brother in Spokane to play some Melee and Wizard.
