More Gimmicky dice... another sign that tabletop gaming has "peaked" ?

I have commented before about the fact that ornate dice is possibly signalling that our tabletop gaming hobby may be at it's peak, as discussed here and here.

Decadence is the word that comes into mind. One doesn't need ornate stuff to maintain interest and could be a sign of a beginning ennui in the hobby among us old farts, or gimmicks to keep app-obsessed millenials interested in old school play. 

Well, a buddy just sent me this link.. Self rolling dice..

I kid you not.. Clap your hands, and they roll themselves.

That's how lazy we're getting..

I'll just leave this video here...
