Using a QR coded die and a smartphone app, Codigo Cube is the latest way of proving you are superior to your friends in terms of trivia knowledge.

The came uses a QR coded die which, after downloading the Codigo app, can be scanned using your phone’s QR reader to reveal a question displayed on your phone’s screen. Each side of the die represents a different category.

The aim of the game is to answer questions from all six sides of the die before the other person or people you are playing. It’s a bit like Trivial Pursuit, but for the smartphone generation. 

Each category is updated with new questions every day based on current affairs and world events, so the subject material will always remain topical.

Optimised for the iPhone and iPad, the Codigo Cube app is also available for the Android platform so long as the device runs Android 2.2.2 Froyo and has at least a five-megapixel camera on board.

The Codigo Cube die can be ordered from for $9.95 with free shipping, while the app can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store or Google Play for Android.
