Someone made the perfect D&D companion with a Raspberry Pi
No more hunting for lost dice under tables.

By Simon Batt
Published 1 day ago

Key Takeaways

* Love the feel of rolling dice, but hate losing them? Check out
Mr. Dice - a Raspberry Pi creation for all your dice-rolling needs.
* Mr. Dice handles multiple dice types, adds up results, and
maintains manual interaction for a fun experience.
* Abe's Projects made Mr. Dice, which might spark interest in
creating your own digital dice roller at home.

How do you like your dice? While some adore the tactile feel and sound
of rolling physical dice, others prefer to have a computer calculate
just how much damage their 9d6 spell did. And while there are plenty of
apps out there that can handle it, why not go for something that will
really get the party talking? Someone created their own dice-rolling
device using a Raspberry Pi called "Mr. Dice", and it's a seriously
cool-looking way to perform your dexterity saving throws.

Mr. Dice, the amazing dice-rolling Raspberry Pi project

https://youtu.be/7Y_vFvCPHmE?si=uetLjpB2t2IQglw2

Mr. Dice is the ingenious invention of Abe's Projects on YouTube, who
has done other such ventures such as a Pokédex that can scan and
identify Pokémon. This time, he made himself a dice roller that can
handle multiple different kinds of dice in one roll, plus adding
everything up automatically. Despite being wholly digital, Mr. Dice
still retains some of the manual interaction involved with dice rolling;
instead of stating a result when you tell it to roll the dice, it
rapidly goes through every number the die can roll. You can stop the
"roll" by pressing a button on the side, which makes the roll feel more
like something you did rather than something a computer did for you.

At the time of writing, Abe hasn't released a written guide on how to
create your own Mr. Dice, nor has he released the code behind the
roller. And while eager D&D players have expressed interest in
purchasing a unit for themselves, Abe has remained tight-lipped on the
matter. While we hope Abe can release his materials so we can make our
own at home, it still poses as a nice inspiration for people who want to
make their own roller.

I can't say I'm all that impressed. Aside from it being a stand-alone
device, it doesn't seem much different from the dozens (if not
hundreds) of dice-rolling apps available on phones and tablets
already. I have one where you can 'roll' the digital dice by shaking
the device, and - similar to the machine described above - stop a
'roll' by tapping the screen.

I mean, it's great this guy is having fun making a pocket device for
his own amusement, but it's hardly the sort of thing I'd want to build
on my own when equally capable options are already available.

I have Dicenomicon on my phone which does the whole 3d dice rolling.
It's pretty old, and probably obsolete. In fact I haven't even tried it
in a long time, I'll see if it still works. Wow. So obsolete it
doesn't even show up on my phone or the App store anymore. Or maybe
that's from when I had an android and it's not on iPhone?

That was about 5 years ago at least.

Well there's something called Mighty Dice on my iPhone, looks like it
does the same. It doesn't seem to let me roll 100 d6's at the same time
though. Sad.
