DICE+ Digital Chance Cubes to Appear at E3

by Jason ChestnutMarch 31, 2012

Gaming start-up GIC is going to be at E3 this year showcasing their high tech take on one of the oldest gaming accessories in history…the Chance Cube. DICE+ updates the standard multi-sided die with LED back lights, anti-cheat roll detection and bluetooth connectivity. It will retail for between $30 and $40 when it becomes available later this year and is said to be compatible with iOS, Android, Symbian, Linux and Windows…although we’ll probably have to wait for E3 to find out exactly which platforms will be available at launch. As a veteran pen and paper player (yes, I played Dungeons and Dragons), the idea of high tech programmable dice is pretty awesome. The official website offers few details, but the possibilities are undeniably huge. Check out the video below to see the DICE+ in action.

    Hopefully this plays better than the last one.

  • Molly Griego

    He Is even received the identical exact facial expressions and every little thing like him, to me. Any chance?

  • Janet Somerville

    I’ve previously learned how to solve the Rubik’s Cube, but now I’m puzzling over the one particular with figures on it. How can you prepare people numbers in original proper orders and positions. As significantly as I know, the only tiles I are unable to adjust to the suitable situation is the middle ones. Therefore, if by any chance you transpire to know it, be kind to let me know. Many Thanks in advance. 😀

    I am fifty percent greek and french. I would like to be a trainee of cube it is actually my dream. But i dont converse nor be korean so i woumd like to know if i dont have even a single possibility or if i must go and auditin in an additional company. What is the greatest way to audition and what really should i do ( dancing or singing)
    Thanks so much! I actually need to know!!!

    a) 1/24
    b) 1/12
    c) 1/8
    d) 1/9
    e) 2/9

    I’ve already learned how to solve the Rubik’s Cube, but now I’m puzzling over the one with numbers on it. How can you arrange those numbers in original correct orders and positions. As far as I know, the only tiles I can’t adjust to the appropriate position is the center ones. Therefore, if by any chance you happen to know it, be kind to let me know. Thanks in advance. 😀

  • alberto s

    He’s even got the same exact facial expressions and everything like him, to me. Any chance?

  • opurt

    I am half greek and french. I would like to be a trainee of cube it is really my dream. But i dont speak nor be korean so i woumd like to know if i dont have even a single chance or if i should go and auditin in another company. What is the best way to audition and what should i do ( dancing or singing)
    Thanks so much! I really need to know!!!

    Need to know for a physics project on newton’s laws. How much does an average dice weigh, from a board game or something?

  • stingerms

    So I’ve got all these polyhedral dice for role playing games. I can use classical statistics to calculate quite easily the assumed uniform distribution for a single die roll, and what the mean is.

    Now if I roll the same die several times, and add the results, the probability for any particular number starts to form a bell shaped curve.

    For example, if I roll a six-sided die three times, there would be a sort of bell shaped curve, with 10.5 being the mean, with 3 and 18 being the extremes.

    It seems to me that I should be able to calculate the standard deviation for these sort of bell shaped curves without too much trouble, but our statistics teacher thinks the only way to do it is to roll the dice about a billion times, and go through these complicated equations for each individual roll. Isn’t there an easier way?
    What a mess! I might as well make a table for each one and estimate it off of that!

  • Vultre9

    What type of plastic makes the highest quality game dice? I want them to be durable, heavy, and satisfying to roll. Also, what type of casting process must be used with this material?

  • therundown2k3

    Is rolling a dice and noting the number rolled a binomial experiment?

  • toast

    There is a contest one a forum I love that you win if you get this total, trying to figure out which is more likely: 1234 with 20 100 sided dice or 246 with 20 20-sided dice.

  • Brian

    Suppose we roll 10 fair standard dice. What is the probability that their sum is divisible by 6, assuming that the rolls are independent.

  • Dana G

    When we play settlers of catan we use a pair of dice per player. Firstly, how can I calculate the probability of rolling any given number when one set is used and passed around; secondly, how can I calculate the probability of rolling any given number when each player has their own pair of dice?

  • Mathew

    I have a food processor that has settings only for On and Off (and Pulse). Is it possible to dice onions and peppers in it? If so, how? I want to dice them, not turn them to mush.

    I have the standard blades: the round, 2-sided kind and also just the regular spinning kind with 2 sharp arms.

  • Jeanelle the Retard

    What is the probability of rolling a four in the gambling dice game of craps (given two six sided dice)? What is the probability that a player can roll a four 3 times in a row (assume that rolling the dice each time does not affect the outcome of the next roll)?

    If possible, please list the formula that was used to come up with your answer.
