This system uses a specially built pad, goes by the same name as the company, that communicates to mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. The said device is installed with an IC reader, a bunch of sensors, LED for effects, and Bluetooth for communicating to the mobile device when compatible games are activated.
On the Project Field pad, players can move their cards and it will correspond to a game action. Similar technology have already surfaced in Japanese arcades using IC-based card games for a bunch of years now, the addition of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets as part of their functionality put Sony as pioneer to the idea.

A so-called card game is played with a bundle or pack of playing cards. These cards should be identical in shape, size, and width so that when turned down players can't tell apart which is which, only the front sides have different content, at least this is the norm. Front faces can also be duplicates.
In some games, it would require several sets of cards shuffled into one group and played together. The first deck of cards appeared during the Tang dynasty, China, in the 9th century. Throughout time, ideas have been piling up with card games which include betting on them.
