Playing a game of chess requires an opponent to be physically in your presence, but the 'Square Off' chess boards aim to help change this. Funding now on Kickstarter, the 'Square Off' chess board features a connected design that enables users to play with opponents around the world or face off solo against the board's artificial intelligence system.

The 'Square Off' chess board looks like a traditional piece of gaming equipment at first glance; it's crafted from wood and has a classic color aesthetic. It's only after accessing the connectivity features that users can identify how it's different from other boards out there.

Users can utilize the 'Square Off' chess boards to play in Square Off mode against others, Training mode to learn from the board's artificial intelligence or in Live streaming mode to let others catch the action.
