Israel’s Kipee makes electrically conductive ink and other technology to transmit information between a physical board game and a TV screen. This eliminates the intermediary step of traditional DVD games that require you to skip around using the DVD remote control when instructed to do so by the game.

Iceland’s SagaMedia, who recently produced a successful word game called Alias, has created a prototype game called Safari Ranger using Kipee’s technology.

The game was produced with funding from Finland’s Tactic. The games are estimated to retail for 30 EUR each, and could be ready for the market by 2011/12. (source)
