unidice - How our vision of a digital dice started

What means “a digital dice”?

“For millennia, the dice remained just that – a multi faceted solid object with fixed outcomes. The digital dice, however, bridges the gap between the analogue and the digital realm. With this we want to enrich the market first and revolutionize it in the process” emphasizes Matteo Werth, project lead of unidice startup department.

We developed an electronic dice with six digital faces. Each face can be controlled individually and can display custom or pre-made content.

Furthermore, the unidice is a digital dice, individually customizable via mobile app, which enhances games and everyday situations by streamlining them, making them more interesting and colorful in the process.

 

unidice - Development history of the digital dice

A digital dice invented in 2019 in upper Franconia, Germany, by a small team over the course of two years. Together with a strong partner, the U.S.-based company surfaceink.com. This great company successfully developed consumer goods and applications for companies like Apple, Amazon or Fitbit. Together we made the unidice run step by step.

It was about shape and size:

  • With which form of corners and edges does a digital cube roll best?
  • When is an electronic dice too big? But how small can the dice be without having a loss of display clarity because the displays are too small?
  • How does the individual control of the digital displays work?


So far, there has never been a single device with different controllable displays.

The gambling dice was tested, experimented, discarded – until the best result was finally achieved.

But not only the cube itself was up for development.

Hardware, firmware and software as well as mobile applications – everything had to be developed and work together in fully function.

“While enjoying a fun evening of board games, the digital dice was conjured up in our minds. Seeing all the development going on was an adventure. But in November 2021 holding the first unidice in my hands including springing into action via app control is like a dream come true” raves Isabella Helm, lead of game development.

November 2021 the first prototypes arrived in Germany. The whole team is now working on a further development of firm- and software, as well as applications and games for our digital dice.

Together with another strong US based partner Agency 2.0 we are planning to start a crowdfunding campaign in the second quarter 2022. This unidice Kickstarter campaign should help us to raise money in order to commence the serial production in Europe and Northern America in the third quarter of 2022.
