Chancellor of the Universe

Chancellor of the Universe is Brave New World's R&D project that combines Augmented Reality with a physical robot (capable of facial recognition) to create a new type of board game experience.

CotU had its official premiere at the Collision conference in 2017 and was featured in Discovery Channel's Daily Planet show episode "High Tech Toys Week" in December 2017. The project is currently in development, with the goal of being market ready in 2018.
