Sifteo Cubes at CES


Sifteo cubes, launched at technology trade show CES 2011, are a brand new way to play tabletop games.

Created by David Merrill and Jeevan Kalanithi, Sifteo cubes are 1.5-inch, motion-responsive blocks that interact with the player and each other when moved around.

Co-founder Kalanithi says: “Traditional game consoles have lost the tangible and interactive nature of classic tabletop games like Mahjong and dominoes that bring people together.”

To play, just install Sifteo software on your computer, and then buy games and apps from the online library. A USB wireless link enables games to be downloaded to the cubes, ready for hands-on, tactile play.

Sifteo will be readily available this autumn.
