Very good collection. Novag Citrine Chess Computer and LED Chess Set are my favourite. But I was fascinated by Ice Chess Maker.
They are all interesting ideas. I especially like the Chess watch and the Novag Citrine Chess board. Great Chess Board to have when I am not around my computer.
How can I order that chess watch? I'm not from USA...
So the LED chess set has a proximity sensor and a battery in each piece? :oops:
