Mattel has just announced Pictionary Air, an AR-powered version of the classic board game where players draw in the air using a light pen while their smart device (or television) tracks their movements. Rather than using a traditional pen and paper to draw pictures for players to identify, you are provided with a light-up pen and then the drawing is cast in real-time onto a mobile device or TV equipped with Chromecast or AirPlay.

“One Pictionary Air is downloaded, it requires no data, so you can play wherever and whenever you want — you can even record players drawing and share them onto your favorite social media platforms. If you thought Pictionary was tough with a pen and paper, imagine playing without even seeing what you’re illustrating. Pictionary Air will arrive to Target in June for $20 and to other select retailers worldwide in July,” reports Yahoo News.
