What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

RouLED is an open-source (Arduino based) illuminated gaming platform, designed for both gamers and programmers.

RouLED is based on the traditional game French Roulette, but it is much more than its digital LED-version. It will be introduced with 8 standard games, requiring skills like memorizing, general knowledge and reaction time.

Above all, RouLED is a social device that can be used by up to 6 players or teams and enables players to create their own rules and have a great evening of fun and laughter.

Everybody with programming skills will be welcome to develop new games or new versions of existing games. You will be surprised how many fun and strategic games you can create with 37 led-lights and some buttons and knobs!

What games will be pre-installed upon first delivery?

1) Basic RouLED

You probably know the traditional French Roulette with its wheel and countless chips and administration. This version is much easier to play and it also looks better. Just select your number(s) by clicking on them (up to five times), spin the ‘wheel of lights’ and get paid 36 times every point correctly predicted. Is it just about luck? That’s up to you; influencing the spinning speed and direction are optional. You might even want to enable the option to re-spin under certain circumstances.

Time: up to you

2) LED it Go

LED it Go is the ultimate party game. Drinking games, karaoke, truth or dare: the options are only limited by your imagination. Just select one or more led circles and spin the ‘Wheel of Misfortune’. If the spinning light ends on your circle, you have to drink, sing, dance… Just like with RouLED it’s an option to influence the speed of the spinner and the direction.

Time: up to you

3) LED Lord

Not into party games based on luck? LED Lord is the strategic warfare game that will appeal to most online warfare gamers. Each player will start with 1 home country, 100 bots, a rocket and a mine. The goal is to eliminate your opponent(s) by expanding your territory and fire rockets. You can defend yourself with mines, shields and by keeping as much bots as possible in every controlled country. Battles will be fought bot-to-bot with an equal chance of winning for each bot (training of bots and other options will be extra features for later releases). After every round new bots will be distributed in every controlled country.

Time: 30 – 90 min.

4) KnowLEDg

KnowLEDg is not only about your general knowledge of 37 countries in the world and the colors of their flags. To win this game, you must know where they are situated on the board and select them as quickly as possible after a word shows up that is connected to one of them.

Time: 15 – 30 min.

5) BraceLED

BraceLED is a reaction speed game. Every player starts with a small piece of a ‘bracelet’. You can extend it by pressing your button at the exact moment the light is one place before or after your part of the bracelet. The speed of the spinning light will slow down gradually and stops if one player presses his button. Pressing your button at the wrong time will make your part smaller. There are also random bonus cherries, that will make your part grow extra fast!

Time: 15 – 60 min.

6) CoupLED

The game CoupLED is both a party game that can be played by individuals or teams and is the ultimate memory test. Under each led-circle, a sound can be heard if you press your button. Simply connect the two similar sounds by selecting the corresponding led-fields and score points just like the traditional game of memory. Available with ‘adult’ sounds.

Time: 15 – 30 min.

7) Learning at lightspeed (for children)

RouLED is not only fun for adults. The first delivery will come with an educative game for young children. Spelling words, recognizing sounds and images. Hours of fun and learning guaranteed.

Time: up to you

8) 'SecrLED'

Let’s not reveal all the mystery around RouLED. This game will be explained after you receive it, together with all the details and suggested rules for all the other games.  

Different ‘topping circles’ for different games

The illustrated game specific circle around the led-lights will help to create a new look for different games. It’s easy to replace it and you can make your own circle and print it on two A4/Letter pages with an online template provided on RouLED.net.

Risks and challenges

Developing games, both online and tangible, has been our hobby and passion for quite some time. We are not yet a big company in gaming with multiple products on the market. However, we do combine entrepreneurial, design, programming and production skills and expertise and we take it very seriously. Upon completion of this campaign, RouLED will be produced with utmost care by a professional team.

The product in the video is a prototype. The product that will be delivered may differ in design and function. Users must obey the current regulations in their country regarding gambling and alcohol consumption.
