I haven’t played D&D since the early 80s (when it was cool, right?) but I could really see a resurgence with the interactive pieces and dice, etc. the Microsoft Surface and other similar interactive tablets/tables might offer. This article describes one such interaction, and it is even more interesting that it is a student project and not an actually licensed product in development. I think we saw hints to this a few months ago, but this seems more together. Here is more information on the student developers.
