Chafitz Destiny Prodigy (1981)

The new sensory Morphy - an economical answer for those who want to play against a master  ....  and those who wish to learn from one.

PRODIGY is the newest Destiny chess computer from Applied Concepts, Inc. It is the only low-cost electronic chess game on the market today allowing for both complete sensory play, or keyboard input play. Moves can be made on its sensory playing board or entered on the 20 position keyboard. Or, the game can be played using both modes of input.
