Could not find the dice for your dice game? Lost one of the needed dice? Annoyed at dice dropping off a table? Tired of summing up the value of several dice?
Introducing U-Dice, an universal electronic dice for most dice games. It could have up to 6 dice at one roll, with each die be 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10,12, 20 or 100 faces.
U-DICE has 6 sets of the following dice:
The d2 die has the value of 1 and 2. The d3 die has the value of -1, 0, and 1. The d10 die has the value from 1 to 10. The percentile die (d%) has the value from 1 to 100, so there is no need for two dice with one represents units and the other tens.
Select the dice
There are 2 buttons on the back of the U-Dice for selecting how many dice (1 ~ 6) you need and the sides for each die (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, d%).
Roll the dice
Tap or shake the U-Dice to roll the dice, the rolling screen will be displayed for 1 second followed by the roll result.
When U-DICE is set to 1d6, 2d6, or 3d6, the d6 die is displayed with pips instead of number.
For all other cases, each die will be displayed with its roll value inside its die box, while the die sides is displayed to the lower left corner of the die box.
The total value of all the dice except percentile dice is displayed on the top for easy recognition.
If more than 1 percentile dice are set, only the first one is displayed on the top.
When U-DICE is powered on, a start-up screen with the U-DICE logo is displayed for 1 second. We provide the personal edition which could display your personal message under the U-DICE logo on that screen, such as "Special for <your name>", etc. If you pledge the personal edition, you could specify your own message after the campaign ends.
Stretch goals will be announced after the funding goal is reached.
Color selection will be fulfilled after Kickstarter campaign ends.

Risks and challenges
Since our prototype is a fully functional one, the concern is not if you could get your U-DICE, but a matter of when. U-DICE is not that complicated and the needed electronic components are plenty of supply. But there is always the possibility of delays due to things beyond our control at the manufacturer’s facility. We will keep you closely updated with the progress and work hard to deliver the product on schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
