Dungeons & Dragons for Microsoft Surface created

Just got this link from Mike's list, must say that you guys are pretty awesome. Looks like it would be fun to play DnD (or any table top RPG) on that screen, especially since I'm sure it could be networked. As long as cost for such a device / game were kept reasonable, it should sell pretty well.

While it looks awesome, I am noticing 2 potential problems. First off, many of the gamers I know would rather feel the dice in their hand as they roll rather than use a random number generator, which your dice clearly are, just using a die symbol. The other thing is that the players are able to come up with many more things than is possible to put on your list of things a player can do, such as use a spell to break a branch off a tree a hundred yards to the right and cause a distraction. If you can somehow overcome THAT, then I think even the dice junkies could overlook the random number generator to use it on a regular basis. That and however much the thing costs.
