Darts Connect is the world's first smart dartboard

Like a pub in your home

Fancy a game of 'arras but can't get down to Lakeside? You want Darts Connect, the world's first smart dartboard.

It connects to your smartphone and tablet via Wi-Fi to share your score with players all over the world. And it's a doddle to use. Just sync it with the app, select a game to play and start throwing. Every time one of your darts scores, the app makes a sound and registers your points. So there's no cheating, or having to write your score on a blackboard.

You can customise the themes, animations and sound effects on the app. Plus it contains plenty of classic and party games, as well as a global league. You can even taunt your opponents by sending them voice and text messages.

If you don't have anyone to play against, the app will match you against someone of a similar standard, or just someone nearby. Although you'd better watch your trash talking if they're just around the corner.

The built-in camera lets you see your opponent's every shot, and ensures there's no foul play. The board is powered by a battery that's charged via USB, or you can slot in four AA batteries. The board is available in black and white colour options.

It's raised almost $20,000AUD of a $70,000AUD goal, and still has 29 days to go. If successful, it will ship in January. Prices start at $245AUD (£119).

Really? This really is a pointless piece of "tech". Half the fun of darts is adding up your score and scrawling on a blackboard. Another case of pointless technology consuming the planet's resources because people are too lazy to think for themselves!

Why keep posting articles about things that don't actually exist as products that you can buy??

"Pointless" a funny adjective in the context of a dartboard.

A very pointy part of this offering is the ability for players around the globe to play each other simultaneously and not try to all cram into the same pub.

The investment appeal is that if it should prove popular the potential global sales could be substantial.

Is it really fun adding up? Electronic darts is played across the world and is a fun game, it will always be popular.
