Meet the ePawn Arena: a smart board that lets you interact with it from your smart devices. The ePawn Arena has a smart surface capable of recognizing up to 32 objects. It can detect positions, orientations, and rotations of objects and sends the data over WiFi.
The makers have action, strategy, and classic board games like chess available. For instance, when you play chess on this board, the pieces move automatically. If you know coding, you could use the free SDK to connect your game to the Arena. Like what you see? You can find out more on Kickstarter.
