Magic board games are here ✨

Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

In the fall of 2017, Maker Brad Dwyer made an AR app that solves Suduko puzzles using your iPhone’s camera. The premise of the “game” was simple — all you had to do is point your phone’s camera at a physical Sudoku grid and the phone would automatically fill out the blank squares. Game over. “This is like ordering food and watching someone else eat it” - Josef  The launch came a few months after Apple’s iOS 11 release, when ARKit was still in its infancy. Flash forward two years, and Brad is still focused on bringing physical games to digital life with AR. His latest launch is called BoardBoss, and it’s an app that uses computer vision to understand different board games. It them solves them using augmented reality. “When we released Magic Sudoku - ARkit, the biggest question was ‘doesn’t this ruin the game?‘ — and yeah, it kind of did. With BoardBoss we are making sure to focus on adding features to games that *enhance* the experience for players.“ - Brad The first release supports Boggle, so give it a whirl and tell us what you think. Brad says that chess with AR could be the next game he tackles. For more AR games, try these: 🚂 Conduct AR! is an augmented reality railroad action game 👀 HeadSquare is a multiplayer AR ball game 😅 HexaDrive is an endless runner game with AR 🏀 AR Solo Basketball app turns anywhere into a basketball court 🛠 Crafter: AR Build Battle lets you make things in AR for your friends to guess 🚘 Room Racer is a miniature AR racing game 💪 HoloGrid is a monster AR battle
