Aluminum Dice With Colored LED Number Spots

November 23, 2015


These are Luma Dice, solid block aluminum dice with light-up LED number spots. The dice are powered by a replaceable battery, and have a motion sensor that activates the lights when you pick them up to roll them. They've been balanced to the best of the maker's ability, but are probably better suited for casual gaming sessions than serious gambling or rolling to see who gets stabbed first. They're currently a Kickstarter campaign, but have already met their funding goal, so $29 will get you a set of two when they ship in March. I just bought a pair, and I'm going to use them to play sexy games in bed after dark. Games like, "Left hand or right hand" and "Magazine or imagination." YOW YOW.

Hit the jump for several more photos and their Kickstarter video.





Thanks to Marcus, who has never lost at rolling to see who goes first.

    A virtual version of these Luma dice is now available for use in virtual tabletop software: http://battlegroundsgames.c...

    Advantages of the digital dice: cheaper (a free download), never have to replace the battery, no weight balance issues to worry about

    Wish there was a power button. The batteries are going to run out while the die is just bouncing around my backpack. How do you transport this die without it constantly activating?

    When it says motion sensor I don't think it's talking about an accelerometer. I'm assuming the sensor picks up changes in lighting (like a PIR sensor that picks up changes in infrared), so having the dice in an opaque case would prevent them from going off.

    "The dice itself is carved from a solid block of aluminum and uses an accelerometer to detect motion to turn the lights on and off again when not being used."

    yeah i checked out the kickstarter because i had doubts they were weighted properly

    "ED DICE are well distributed across each side with regard to it's weight. We have done our best to balance them, but we can't guarantee perfect balance."
    so yeah these things are $30 worth of shiny useless

    "We can guarantee however fair rolls and no heavy skews."
    bull honkers
    you cant guarantee its weighted properly but you can use some vague language to indicate the exact opposite?

    Pretty neat. I was hoping it would power by kinetic motion though. Would eliminate the need to replace batteries. How long the battery on this though?

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    That was my first thought too. It would be amazing to have a tiny kinetic generator in there.
