The basic chess board has remained generally the same since its inception but the Square Off Kingdom Set finally brings chess into the future with an automated smart chess board. Begining as a highly successful crowdfunding campaign, this smart chess board doesn't reinvent chess but it does enhance this ancient game with 21st century AI and online connectivity. This connectivity lets players challenge anyone in the world and engage in a game on a physical chessboard.
In addition to online connectivity, the Square Off Kingdom smart chess board comes with an intelligent AI that features 20 different difficulty levels for customized coaching. After matches, the AI in the board can analyze a player's chess ability to offer up strategies and solutions for improving their game.
While in online play or against the AI, the opponent's chess pieces are moved around the board using magnets. This feature can also be used to stream professional matches using the board in real-time.
