Mumbai, India – 11 January 2021 – Square Off, the former winner of CES Top Tech & Innovation awards, is back at the biggest consumer technology trade show CES 2021. They are all set to showcase their flagship automated chess boards along with revolutionary new Square Off Neo & Swap. With something unique to offer every year, this year too Square Off is set to leave everyone astounded with the announcement of their newest product, the world’s first-ever rollable chess computer.
This rollable chess computer will allow users to play against the built-in AI or with anyone across the globe. It is designed to keep it portable and globally connected. Likely to be released in the market by March 2021, this novel board, ideal for chess students, professionals and enthusiasts alike, would change the entire chess gaming landscape.
Launched in October 2019, two other stellar products- Square Off Neo & Swap are estimated to ship to the early crowdfunding backers by June 2021. Neo is a lighter, faster and affordable chess board, a perfect chess partner. Swap is a first-of-its-kind multi-board game automated device which lets one play Chess, Draughts, Halma and Connect 4, all on a single surface. These two innovations raised more than USD 1,000,000 from 5700+ backers on global crowdfunding platforms. Both these products are likely to be out in the market by the end of this year.
Speaking of their plans for 2021 and CES, the company’s co-founder and CEO Bhavya Gohil says, “Square Off is all set to revolutionize board gaming across the globe and 2021 looks very exciting.
