Pictionary Air Has Players Make Digital Drawings with an Illuminated Pen

The original Pictionary board game requires a pen and paper to let participants sketch out their clue, but the new Pictionary Air aims to change this with a decidedly more digitized experience.

The board game works by harnessing the power of augmented reality (AR) and requires players to use an accompanying illuminated pen to draw in the air. Their partner uses a smartphone or tablet running the accompanying app to see what they're drawing to quickly guess before the time is up.

The Pictionary Air board game is a clever new take on the classic game title and also allows users to stream the artwork being drawn directly to the living room TV to let everyone see what's being drawn. The game is set to launch on July 1, 2019.
