Oggboard brings tabletop games to the 21st century

Augmented Reality is becoming more and more real as the years pass on. Which is why the Oggboard is definitely an intriguing concept. The idea is that you use an app on your phone to play the game. The board will hold up your phone (iOS devices to start, with Android compatibility in the future) at the optimal angle, and use tiles that have different creatures that will do battle with each other.

This looks like a wonderful way to bridge the gap between table top gamers, and those based solely in electronic games. It would be awesome to see your characters �come to life�. This is a Kickstarter project, but once it hits production, it’s looking like the board is only going to run at about $30 a piece. It will ship with a simple chess game, plus the ability for developers to create their own games based on the platform. This is definitely something worth keeping an eye on.
