    European electronics giant Philips has developed an "Entertaible" that, it says, could unite physical and virtual gaming worlds.

    The Entertaible is based around a 76cm LCD touch screen that acts as an interactive play surface.

    The screen can display game boards or maps and can interact with objects, such as pawns or figures, put on it.

    Philips said the Entertaible could be a universal board for family games or find uses in casinos and restaurants.

    Can't really imagine it taking off for home use but as an idea for business' I can imagine it has loads of potential.
