Chess Revolution

welcome to a new chapter that marks the dawn of a new era in the world of chess Our project revolves around addressing key challenges faced by chess enthusiasts, both visually impaired and sighted.


Real Moves

Real moves will manifest in real-time on the physical chess board

Mobile App

Long-distance players can engage in captivating matches using the app


Addressing the challenges faced by both visually impaired and sighted chess enthusiasts, our project aims to create a universally accessible chess platform. Locating opponents of similar skill levels for over-the-board games poses a common hurdle for players, limiting the availability of challenging matches. Additionally, digital platforms bring their own set of issues, including difficulties in maintaining focus and an aggressive playstyle during online chess games. These challenges impact the overall quality of the digital chess experience. Our goal is to overcome these obstacles, providing an inclusive and enjoyable chess environment that caters to the diverse needs of players, whether they prefer traditional over-the-board play or digital platforms.


To address the challenges faced by chess enthusiasts, both visually impaired and sighted, we have developed an innovative solution that seamlessly integrates a physical chess board with a mobile app. This unique combination allows players to choose opponents from our community or engage in games with friends and even international counterparts, all while enjoying the authentic experience of playing with a physical board. By merging the tangible and digital aspects of chess, our solution enhances the gaming experience, providing real moves and real-time interactions. This approach not only caters to the diverse preferences of players but also fosters a sense of connection and engagement within the chess community.

The Future is Here
