Electronic Chess Computer Manuals (and Programs)

For years Chess House sold a wide variety of chess computers from small handheld portable chess to full size table top chess computers. Some would teach with voice coaching, others would move their own pieces. In 2014, most brands closed their doors.

Over the decades since electronic chess sets were first created, over 600 designs have been on the market at one time or another. Here is a site, Spacious Mind, where you can explore chess computers for technical specifications, datasheets and interesting information for curiosity sake.
