Last Gameboard introduced Gameboard-1, a digital gaming console designed to replace old board games with physical components. The idea is simple – most board games only require a marked board and chips to move around, marking each player’s progress. All this is easy to implement using computer graphics, getting a universal console with hundreds of games in memory.
Structurally, Gameboard-1 is a huge tablet or just a panel with a multi-touch LCD screen with a diagonal of 22 inches and a resolution of 1920×1920 pixels. It weighs 3 kg and has an integrated battery that provides 4 hours of battery life. The gadget is equipped with basic and graphics processors, is equipped with 4 GB of RAM DDR4 and a 64 GB hard drive. It uses its own operating system “The Last Gameboard OS” for management.
Additional devices can be connected to the console, for example, regular tablets for secret planning of your moves. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB-C interfaces are used for this purpose. Gameboard-1 needs an Internet connection to connect to a game library that can be accessed through a paid subscription. However, gamers can buy a game they like into their collection.
Startup collects funds to start production – if everything goes according to plan, the first consoles will come to customers in next year, in October 2020. The cost of one game board will be $349.
