Philips has unveiled the prototype of ‘Entertaible’ a tabletop gaming platform that marries traditional multi-player board and computer games in a uniquely simple and intuitive way. Currently a working concept, Entertaible comprises a 30 inch horizontal LCD, sophisticated touchscreen-based multi-object position detection, and all supporting control electronic.
      Entertaible allows the players to engage in a new class of electronic games that combine the features of computer gaming, such as dynamic playing fields and gaming levels, with the social interaction and tangible playing pieces, such as pawns and dies, of traditional board games .

Initially aimed at the out-of-home game market such as restaurants, bars, and casinos, Enterable has the potential to evolve into a gaming platform for the consumer market too.
      Entertaible owes its name to the social entertainment experience it encourages and the tabletop form factor it is built on. Its capabilities could breathe new interactive life into conventional multi-player board and electronic games. This may include, for example, using a portion of the touch screen to allow private tactical information to be shown to specific players only. Other enhancements to the gaming experience could include ‘play-based’ rule explanation and feedback tips; the ability to electronically store large numbers of games, which could include rekindling large amounts of physical storage space for conventional boxes; instant retrieval of part-played games; on-line access to new or trial games; on-line access to new or trial games; and a fast, simple set-up.
      Philips aims to encourage partnerships and collaboration with games vendors that plan to add new capabilities to their games. Entertaible provides the ideal electronic platform for these companies while the concept of a multi-user digital table is not new, previous solutions have utilized complex arrangements of overhead cameras and dimmed lighting that detract from the user experience. Entertaible, however, is based on a series of infrared LED and photodiodes discretely mounted around the perimeter of an LCD screen. It requires no special lighting conditions or other equipment and is entirely ‘hand’ operated by touch alone. Entertaible can simultaneously detect dozens of objects, including fingers.
