Dicebot is a gadget that addresses one of the biggest problems affecting lovers of board games for generations -- the affinity of dice to get lost. There's nothing more annoying than sitting down to play an epic game of Monopoly only to find out that you can't find the dice. This is where Dicebot comes in.

It's an internet-connected dice roller that can be operated via Twitter. DiceBot will 'roll' your dice when prompted, and responds with a picture of the resulting score. The contraption doesn't require you to roll the dice with your own hands.

The DiceBot contraption consists of a casing within which a pair of dice are mounted in a wooden frame, with a camera mounted on top. A dice-spinning system spins the dice, whose number is then captured by the cameras. The Twitter account @IntrideaDiceBot then sends an automatic tweet to the user revealing the numbers.
