For quiet a while now, Hans, I’ve wanted to emulate what the SquareOffNow dot com board is capable of. It might not be that fancy, where the pieces move themselves; but it I would like every physical move made on a set, to be digitally captured.
When you have almost 40 young minds in a chess lesson, you don’t have time to really get into coaching. Yet, if each game was captured (almost like a digital video), then in between class sessions tutors could work with students through the weaknesses of their game play.
Thus the IoT angle for the Rust chess editions.
