Home arcade company Arcade1up has created a tabletop gaming system that lets you play digital versions of board games like Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, and more. It will come in 24″ and 32″ versions, both with a touchscreen with tactile feedback, and Wi-Fi connectivity for downloading games and other content.
Among the many countless TVs, smartphones, and accessories at CES 2019, Japan’s mui turned up with something different. Their smarthome interface appears to be a simple piece of wood, but it conceals LEDs and a touch panel to display useful information and control devices.
Future Interfaces Group shows off Electrick, an intriguing way to convert virtually any sort of object into a touch-sensitive surface using conductive materials or sprays, and connecting an array of electrodes. It’s not as precise as a touchscreen, but it can sense X/Y positions.
