Dungeons & Dragon - You have never played like this

A team from Carnegie Mellon has developed a D&D that can be played on Microsoft’s Surface.
The video shows that players can put their miniature figures on the Surface, and it will automatically give the stats on the display.

As for the Dungeon Master’s (DM) role, he or she can make maps, and then go in for closeups and scroll with some device exists that outside of the surface. You’ll have to watch the vid to see what I’m talking about. It would appear that the DM is linked to the Surface with a laptop for their own personal privacy.

Now, the whole Dungeons and Dragons game is dependent on dice, and it appears that there is a kind of virtual dice that the character can “roll”.
