It seems like the chronological distance between us and a cheap, interactive digital surface for running tabletop games is fairly considerable at this point. What would you guys/gals say? Ten? Fifteen years maybe? Which is a shame because I'd love to play around with something like that -- like today.
Something much more attainable would be a touch-sensitive character record sheet that could run on a tablet. Somebody smarter than me could make something like this right now.
"Pencil-marks" on the sheet could be altered with a few well-placed taps. Of course the sheet would be exportable to a jpg or png format for quick printing if you really wanted/needed a hard copy. The Dungeon Master could be equipped with a real-time view of these pages from his laptop and even alter them if necessary. What do you guys think? It is Renaissancey enough?
