ePawn to Merge Gaming & Virtual Reality?

January 20, 2012 by brennon

There have been attempts in the past to merge the worlds of wargaming and board games with the virtual world, but most have not got further than the white board. Wizards of the Coasts at one point were trying to run out the virtual table top, but that didn’t get too far. So what about ePawn?

ePawn Tablet

ePawn as the trailer shows above, allows you to use real world pieces with their online and mobile games. Pretty impressive to think that you could forgo the pain of using dungeon tiles and just swipe the last encounter away to make room for a new one. Or even play your board games all on one tablet?

Is this something you would ever use, or is it more of a luxury item?
