Gaming platform

This tabletop gaming platform uses an iPad and NFC-based game tokens to create a fun learning experience.

A screen-based gaming platform that’s still rooted in real life and touch-based gaming.

Check out Rolling Seeds, a nifty little game that uses cutting-edge technology. A mix of word, scrabble, crossword, roulette, and a bunch of other games, Rolling Seeds comes with NFC-based chips that you have to put in the “Smart Game Pot”. Roll the seed and the jar reads the NFC tag, registering your movement. It all takes place on an iPad or Android tablet that plugs right into the jar, and the Rolling Seeds app offers a wide variety of number, alphabet and picture-based learning games.

Setting up and playing your Rolling Seeds is quite simple. First pair the iPad or Android tablet with your Game Pot via Bluetooth and download the Rolling Seeds app. The app offers 20 different games to choose from, and the company mentioned that game updates and new games will always ensure an endless fun experience. The games require you to play by rolling seeds in the pot, with different seeds (NFC discs) for different games. Rolling Seeds currently offers games like Crossword, Go Fish, Soccer, Roll of Fortune, and Spelling Master, among others. The Game Pot accepts the tokens (or seeds) you put in, and a flip-up drawer lets you remove the seeds from inside when the game is over. The jar uses RFID to recognize seeds in real time, with no lags or delays. Also designed for the visually impaired, each seed also comes with Braille markings, allowing everyone to have fun while learning and playing!

Winner of both the iF Design Award and the Good Design Korea Award, Rolling Seeds aims to make games dynamic and fun, without relying entirely on a screen or physical device. This hybrid combines the tactile fun of picking up items, rating them, and playing your turn, with the virtual fun of an online game filled with a dynamic user interface and animations that captivate children’s minds.

However, the main goal is always to develop skills and help children learn and grow. The device comes with an internal 1800mAh Li-ion battery that powers the Smart Game Pot for up to 10 hours and is USB-C rechargeable. The Rolling Seeds app is available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, while the physical game is available for a $99 Super Early Bird discount on Kickstarter.
