We are facing the trouble of detecting the position of an RCube placed on the RadiantBoard.
It is not easy because we don't want to use electrical connections betwen the cubes and the board.

The Radiant² is an augmented game board that allows the user to interacts with a videogame by placing tangible blocks on the board and manipulating them.
The design aimed at creating a close link between the user's physical actions and their effects in the game, thus reducing the gulfs between the real and the virtual world.
The idea behind the Radiant² is born in the 2014, as a research for Tangible Game Interfaces at the University of Trento, and is designed to interact with a videogame called OHR.
On the 22nd of October 2014 the team behind the Radiant² was awarded the Jury Prize at the CHI Play 2014 Student Game Design Competition (SGDC) for their game OHR and its augmented gameboard, Radiant².
