  • why is it confidential?

    • Because is possible to play Stratego, Poker, Battle Ship, Magic… in the same machine for 2 users. Each user see in his screen confidential information that the opponent can not. Is the first concept of video game console where this is possible.

          Did you even look at the screenshots? There are two screens on the -outside- of the machine, meaning that one screen can be facing to the left, and another to the right. Not both facing left and different angles.

  • Interested person says:

    By when would one be able to possibly see this as either working proto or in full range available??

    This looks too complicated for casual gamers and what real gamer would want to play board games on a console? There is next to no information on how this thing plays games beyond that it can (and apparently that it's magic or something) and yet I can't even imagine how this machine could possible trump the DS. Not impressed. Nice try, though.

    there are several major design flaws on this thing:
    – The screen are on the outside, nothing protects them from impact and/or scratches, and i'm not sure you'll find a comfortable way to fit your fingers under the screen to reach the controls.
    – the power bottom is not accessible once the device is open.
    – why buy a device costing several hundred dollars to play board games when you can just buy the solid edition for a fraction of the price?
