Dungeons & Dragons played on Microsoft Surface


9:20 AM on 10.20.2009



The SurfaceScapes team at the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University have designed a proof of concept Dungeons & Dragons tabletop game to work on Microsoft Surface. SurfaceScapes is aiming to provide features that Game Masters and players will be able to work with to recreate the D&D experience on Microsoft's giant screen table.

I'm not a Dungeons & Dragons guy at all, but this is just neat as f**k. The above video goes through a walkthrough of what SurfaceScapes has developed so far. If videogames are making the transition away from handheld controllers, then I rather have something like the Surface become mainstream rather than Natal. Too bad these things cost a few grand.
