In this video, Raphael talks about the DGT Smartboard and how you can use it to play better chess and enjoy the game in new ways.
The DGT Smartboard more than a beautiful chessboard. Faster electronic sensors enable you to play naturally on the board while connecting to a chess PC software, or electronic chess device, expanding your chess game possibilities in a dramatic way.
You can play games against the computer, against a friend over the internet, against the chess software... the possibilities are astounding.
Play a friend, analyze your games, and improve your chess with this board. With voice move announcements, you'll even be able to play completely screen free.
Compared to the DGT eboards in widespread use to date, this Smartboard has a dynamic scanning software which scans the differences in a board instead of scanning the whole board each time. It's faster than the regular eboards but that technology will eventually come to the eboards too. Power use of a USB board is around 50-60mA. The Smart Board is only 2 to 3mA. In both cases this will eventually become part of the main eboard line.
