The World’s Most Expensive Scrabble Set.

The world’s most advanced Scrabble board comes complete with LEDs, RFID chips and software that transmits the game to the Internet in real time. It’s also the world’s most expensive.

Worth $30,000, the board — clad in carbon fiber — was created for the upcoming Prague Mind Sports Festival which starts on Dec. 1 and runs through Dec 4th. The board houses 225 RFID sensors underneath each square that detect the presence of tiles with corresponding RFID sensors.

Throughout the game, the software scans the board every 974 milliseconds to transmit the game to a live-stream on the web. Though expensive, it’s sure to be the most heated game of Scrabble since the creation of Words With Friends.
