The idea behind the Infinity Game Table is pretty simple: Play any board game you want — but the games are digital on a large touchscreen table. No pieces to set up, no cards to shuffle and no one has to be the banker. Just gather the family around and dive in. And the family doesn’t have to be in the same home. Table owners can play with each other online.
I got an exclusive chance to check out an early prototype of the system, which you can see in the video embedded above. The company behind it is Arcade1Up, which you may know for its recreations of retro arcade cabinets. Now the team is tinkering with tabletop games, building a digital library of touchscreen versions, starting with Hasbro’s most popular titles.
