Skip the tiresome set up and get into your games faster. Interactive guides replace confusing, and sometimes lengthy, rulebooks. When tabletop games are digital, the group can play, pause, and resume at any time. It doesn't matter if you pick the session back up the next day or the next month, because the game will be exactly as everyone left it.

Holographic Spaces

The gameboard is a window into the holographic worlds where imagination and creativity know no bounds. You'll be able to enter dynamic worlds, as your favorite games go digital and spring to life. Explore, battle, and solve puzzles with friends as the stories unfold in a shared holographic space.

Developer Friendly

Although it is a custom display, our glasses connect to the host PC or mobile device as a standard USB3 peripheral. Our SDK is readily-available for all developers who want to create tabletop mixed reality applications.

Immersive Visuals

Our glasses create 3D holographic imagery using our innovative optical system. You'll see brilliant, vivid graphics, that spring from your table! You'll feel like the characters are really there, ready to command.

3D Sound

With stereo speakers that support 3D sound, you’ll be able to hear an enemy sneaking up on you and the clash of weapons as you engage in battle. And, with the built-in microphone for hands-free voice chat, you can discuss strategy with your team when they’re playing remote.

Intuitive Game Controls

Use the wand to reach into the holographic world and control your troops, or use it as a torch to cut through the fog of war. Nudge your character, and feel it, through the onboard haptics. Sculpt visually stunning maps and terrain for your next campaign, or perhaps lay traps for your unsuspecting adventurers.

Interactive Collectibles

Do you love miniatures, dice, and cards? So do we. Now you can play with them like never before, as they come to life with voices and visual effects. You no longer have to imagine fire coming from your dragon, now you’ll actually see it!

FAQs

If you don't find the answers to your questions here, please contact us.

Our glasses offer tabletop augmented reality. Whereas VR isolates your view from the world to provide a purely virtual experiences, our glasses project “holograms” out into the world and onto your tabletop. You’re still able to see the physical world around you, so when you reach for that pizza or drink in the middle of playing, you won’t make a huge mess on your table.

No. Our glasses are a USB 3.0 peripheral that rely on a PC or mobile device to act as the host platform to perform the application's processing (compute, graphics, networking, etc.) needs. Our glasses use those outputs to present the holographic display on the gameboard.

Initially, we will support Windows 10 and select Android devices and we will continue to add new platforms after the consumer launch.

No. Our glasses are specifically designed for tabletop experiences.

What we're able to show today is the current prototype that is being used ahead of final hardware manufacturing. While we don't anticipate making any significant changes, it's possible that we'll discover something and need to alter functionality or aesthetics for the final product. We're not afraid to admit mistakes, learn from them, and fix it in order to provide the best player experience that we can.

We're looking for select partners to work with now. If you have an amazing tabletop game that would work great with our glasses, please contact our Developer Relations team to discuss.
 
We will have more information on general availability later this year. Be sure to sign up for the mailing list and we'll let you know all the details.

Multiplayer is supported at the host platform level. Our SDK provides access to data that enables developers to create shared experiences connected on the network.

No. The wand is best for providing tracked interactions with the holographic scene. If your application does not require 6 DoF tracking for input, then we encourage you to consider using a standard keyboard, mouse, or gamepad for input.

Yes. We think there are plenty of great uses for our system outside of gaming, and we encourage interested parties to try out their ideas with the glasses after launch. However, as a company, our initial focus is on bringing amazing tabletop games to life for players with Tilt Five.

We will announce pricing later this year. Be sure to sign up for the mailing list and we'll let you know all the details.

Our SDK exposes C APIs for native code on all supported host platforms. As well, we provide plug-ins for developers using Unity 5.5+ or Unreal Engine 4 to create games.
