SolusChess (Sensory USB Chessboard)

WARNING!


  From the 1st of January 2020, I will stop supporting this project. No more questions about it, please. With the information published here you can build it without problems, as many people have done over the past 7 years. Thank you!


COMMERCIAL ALTERNATIVES


    If the goal is to make your own sensory chessboard... Go ahead! My SolusChess project may interest you. But if you are only looking for an economical alternative to the DGT e-board, you should know that recently an Italian company has released a nice chess board with piece recognition, and it is very interesting because of its price/specifications ratio:  CERTABO
 

UPDATE December 2015




    Construction of a Sensory USB Chessboard, using reed switches as sensors.

    This project was developed between November 2012 and late 2014. It's no longer in development.
