Mission Statement

For people born in 90s, Yu-Gi-Oh! played an important role in their childhood memories.
Have you ever think of playing Yu-Gi-Oh Duel in real world the same way as Yugi did in manga?

Physical card games like Poker and Pokemon trading card game has no visual effects, makes peole feel plain and boring. Cards are easy to duplicate, thus, card game inventors gain little profit from selling cards.Online card games are purely virtual, and often contain no real social interaction. The game is virtually multiplayer, but physically singleplayer.

Our system brings the Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Disk into reality, very similar to what people saw in anime.

System Specifications

Our system consists of three separate components: a pair of bluetooth enabled duel disks , a phone app and a dedicated server.

Our Yu-Gi-Oh duel disks are light enough to wear and hold still, have 8+ hours battery life, have an inexpensive cost, and met the safety standard.

Our phone app is using as a midway communication device between the duel disk and our server. 

Our server is build on Google Cloud Platform to ensure security and fast connection.

Minimum of 20 game cards needed for each player, where each card is attached to a unique RFID tag in order to ensure non-replication nor cheating.
