Hong Kong, China (PRWEB) January 05, 2016
The world’s first interactive smart dartboard, Darts Connect, takes the ordinary game of playing darts to the next level. A first-of-its-kind online platform and interactive system, Darts Connect allows players to connect online and play others from around the world. Darts Connect first entered the crowdfunding world on Kickstarter and over-funded, raising over $72,000 USD. Since, the completion of the Kickstarter campaign, the innovative company has decided to continue accepting pre-orders on Indiegogo’s InDemand platform.
Darts Connect has the ability to connect players from around the world for competition with players of similar skill sets. Finding an opponent is as easy as connecting the Darts Connect smart dartboard to Wi-Fi and downloading the free Darts Connect application. The software is able to use a player’s statistics to find the appropriate opponent. The statistics are constantly recorded in real-time and saved in the app after every throw to track progress, patterns and skill level.
“We decided to transition from Kickstarter to Indiegogo’s InDemand service because we ultimately want Darts Connect to be readily available for everyone,” said Alex Wong, Co-Founder of Darts Connect. “Our smart dartboard is providing the ability to experience the world together, meet new people and challenge your skills while playing the game and having fun.”
Competing with opponents from across the world has never been easier with the Darts Connect built-in camera. Not only does the camera allow for opponents to virtually connect with each other from across the world, but gamers can now be alerted and see if the person on the other side of the camera is cheating by the proximity of the individual to the dartboard.
The online Darts Connect platform is linked to social media, which allows users to share their statistics with friends. Darts Connect also provides users with the ability to send voice and text messages to the opponent for friendly competition. Darts Connect comes equipped with Cricket, Practice Modes and more downloadable games. The system easily installs on the wall with or without screws and can be powered via AA batteries or Micro-USB. Additionally, the smart dartboard has soft pads on the back of the board, providing extra shock absorption and noise reduction.
Darts Connect comes in white or black and is currently available for pre-order starting at $219 USD for one dartboard and six bronze darts. For more information on Darts Connect, please visit bit.ly/DartsConnectIndie.
