Have you ever wished you could have a real chess set that can be played online against other players? If you have, this could be a game-changer for you. Real chess pieces, real chess board combined with AI that has live training and analysis.
Not only that, one of the most important features that this product has is the learning mechanisms they have. Each square on the board will indicate one of these colors: red for blunders, blue for mistakes, and green to indicate better choices. Based on the skill level you select it will show possible moves for each chess piece.
It is possible to play ChessUp by yourself, with a friend, or online (assist will be disabled). To beat the friend you can skill up by playing against the AI that will level up the same way you do. It will always challenge you no matter what is your skill level.
ChessUp app works hand in hand with the board. It will save up all of your previous games so you can analyze your moves and make better choices. The board itself has a built-in LED display, the pieces are detected by smart touch sensor squares.
ChessUp early bird price on Kickstarter is $249, on retail it will go for $389.
The built-in battery holds for 12 hours and the charge time is only 2h. With weighted pieces and wood grain playing structure it looks and feels(I assume) high quality.
