What’s the future of board games? Some students are making it connected

Fifteen students from Master degree of ECV Aquitaine  under the direction of Tazas Project - an artistic group run by Guillaume Beinat and Alexandre Suné –  created and shared with us a smart board game called “World War Web”.

The goal is simple: survive a computer virus that has infected your machine and, throughout the game, the player should build a strategy  to win this virtual war.

The game runs on Arduino and is composed by a screenprinted board connected to any mobile device plugged on a local WiFi connection. Take a look at the video:

    Fantastic!
    I hope the project becomes open source afterwards!

    “World War Web” is the name of the game, not “Web World War”.
    Otherwise, that’s an interesting hybrid concept
