Playing games on your iPhone can be lots of fun. You are going to get an even better experience when you have a physical board and pieces that you could interact with from your smart device. The ePawn Arena is a smart board that combines physical and digital worlds to enrich your gaming experience. It consists of a flexible electronic surface that can track up to 32 objects and send data over a WiFi connection.
The surface detects positions, orientations, and rotations of the objects. The developers have action, turn-by-turn strategy, and classic board games available for the Arena. For instance, when you are playing chess on this board, game pieces move on their own. How cool is that? More information is available on Kickstarter.
