Square Off – World’s Smartest Chess Board
Challenge any online opponent across the globe or play against the artificial intelligence on this automated chess board
Yes, Square Off is here to bring back those charming old days when people played chess on classic tangible boards. Where on one hand, it has revived the classic charisma of chess, on the other hand, Square Off has also made it smarter, automated and super fun.
How does it work?
It uses a compact 2 axis robotic arm with a magnetic head beneath the box to move the magnetic chess pieces. The At Mega 2560 chip with Bluetooth BLE ensures smooth communication with a smartphone, taking care of decrypting and execution. The most important thing is that it is programmed in a way so that the chess pieces don’t collide during automatic movements.
The Square-Off app
Compatible with both Android and iOS (currently in beta) operating systems, Square Off is designed as a user-friendly app. It lets you interact with the board effortlessly; it just takes a click to begin the game.
But why an app?
The idea is to keep the board button-free so that the users can enjoy the classic chess board experience. Be it selecting sides (black or white), difficulty levels, opening moves of computer, challenging friends, analyzing games, using the timer or chatting with the opponent (this feature is being worked upon), everything is controlled through the app.
