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?  

U-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, 5, 6, 8, 10,12, 20, 24, 30 or 100 faces.

U-DICE has 6 sets of the following dice:

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. The fudge die has the value of -1, 0, 1, and is listed as (F3) to distinguish it from normal d3 which is listed as (3).   

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 (d2, d3, d4, d5, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, d24, d30, d%, fudge d3).

Each dice setting is saved to one preset. There are up to 5 presets available for you to save. Every time when you make a dice setting and save it to one preset, that preset becomes the current preset.

Change to preset 1 (3d6) with one button press

During game, you could easily press the Preset Selection button once to change to the next preset, or press it several times to change to other available presets. If there are only 2 saved presets, you could toggle between these 2 presets by only one button press. 

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.

Stretch goals

When U-DICE is powered on, a startup screen with the U-DICE logo is displayed for 1 second. For personal edition, your personal message will be displayed under the U-DICE logo on that screen, such as "Special for <your name>", etc. If this stretch goal is unlocked, you could specify your own message in the survey after the campaign ends.

The default black panel for the U-DICE display could be replaced easily with other panels. If this stretch goal is unlocked, you do not select only one color, you get all the colors! That means you will have all the 8 beautiful color panels for your U-DICE, change it whenever you want. 

Every U-DICE will have a sweet home.

When the U-DICE is powered up, the 1st start up screen for Kickstarter edition will be displayed for 1 second followed by the 2nd start up screen with your personal message for another second, then moves to the normal dice screen.

Why Kickstarter

We need your help to bring U-DICE to life, please back us. If you can't back at this time, there are still ways to help. Please share this project via email, social media, and word of mouth to tell your friends about our campaign. Thank you!

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.
