A board game that lets you play in two different worlds at the same time? Koski uses your iPad’s camera and object recognition to build a virtual world that interacts with the physical one. Use the magnetic toy blocks to build structures (simple or complex) that characters and objects can play on or around. Help the virtual characters through mazes, complete quests, solve problems and build their own environment. The game also comes with tokens that represent different objects, behaviours, and features without ever touching the tablet. Koski brings the play back to the physical world while still adding the wonder of the virtual world. Koski is preparing to start a campaign on Kickstarter. You can signup at their website to receive updates and notifications on when that’ll actually happen.
