Sony has just announced what seems to be a very interesting project. Named Field, it takes card games to a whole new level by utilizing special pads (Equipped with IC reader, sensors, LED, and Bluetooth and can connect with tablets and smartphones) as input devices. Players can then place and move their cards on these pads which can then trigger events on the screen of the connected device.
