What is a Chess Computer?

A Chess Computer is a state-of-the-art chess board with real chess pieces and electronic circuits that respond to the position of the pieces on the board. This enables you to play a game against the computer at any time without the need of another person. Plus, with its unique memory-save function, you can turn off your computerized chess game and continue later without losing any positions.
