square-off

The Square Off automated chess board is unlike any other gaming board you’ve ever seen. Part Harry Potter, part robotic masterpiece and all things old school chess, Square Off will completely change the way you play chess. You can play with the board like you would any other chess set, but everything else about Square Off is completely new, because this board combines online, international chess with the traditional experience. By using a compact, 2 axis robotic arm with a magnetic head and Bluetooth, Square Off syncs up with your smartphone to move pieces automatically based on moves made with opponents across the world. Thanks to the fantastic programming, the self-moving pieces won’t even collide with one another when they’re moving. Whether you’re training against the AI, watching a grandmaster game unfold in front of your eyes or playing against an opponent in real life, Square Off is the world’s smartest chess board.
