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.

Hi Kickstarter! We are gamers, techies and we love to play. Today, we created DICEES®: the first customizable set of connected dice. We like to think it’s a revolution that will allow all of us to rethink the way we play classic games, but also board games and role play games! We need your support to launch the production of DICEES® and to develop a variety of games, possibilities linked to DICEES®, and to launch the community around what can be made… Because the opportunities of games and fun are limitless! Let’s explore all the faces of DICEES® together.

Dice game is, without any doubts, one of the oldest game in the world. We wanted to give this game its own technological revolution! That’s why we are very excited to introduce DICEES®. DICEES® still have 6 faces, but here, each face is equipped with a colored LEDs digital display. But as of now, our dice are connected and it changes absolutely everything. Thanks to a mix of technologies contained inside a standard ¾” dice, DICEES® can show any patterns on each single face. Then, with any Bluetooth equipped device, the player can associate colors to their opponents, patterns to each faces, interact with anyone… anywhere! DICEES® will even keep up the score for you! Far from the eyes? Not far from the dice! Play with your friends all over the world! DICEES® indicates to your device when a player has rolled the DICEES®, the face on which it dropped on and all the necessary information to ensure that the games runs smoothly. Worried that your friends would cheat to win? DICEES® has all the sensors needed to prevent a player from cheating, and will let you know if someone tried to fool you!

Some pictures of the origin 

DICEES® is a patented technology. Be sure to choose DICEES® : a smart, powerful and premium device, the reference of connected dice!

A little bit history of the origin of a classic dice

Dice game is without doubts, one of the oldest games in the world. We were already practicing it in India, during the Vedic period, 2 thousand years before Jesus Christ. Etruscan and roman citizens, Arabic countries and Spanish people loved to play with faith with those six faces. One of them was a flower drawn (ǎz-zǎhr, in ancient Arab) and, in latin, dice, the dice’s game, and hazard, were designated with the word « Alea ». As old as the world, the dice game has not much evolved since. But it was used for a lot of goals. We use it “naked” for poker, or 421, or for an accessory in games like goose game, parcheesi, or backgammon, or even Monopoly, for making the pawns move forward.


Risks and challenges

All that needed to be done is to make that concept real. Our “makers” team composed of two designers and an electronics developper went quickly to work. Skills and long working hours transformed their dreams into a magical reality. “All had to be hosted in a very limited space: LEDs, battery, Bluetooth. It took thousand hours, prototyping, tests/mistakes, to give birth to a viable solution, the one seen in this video”.

Now we need your help to develop the final device in mass production and more In-DICEES-App games.
We believe in our project! We can’t wait for you to be a part of the DICEES® community.
