DGT e-Board Bluetooth Wireless
Now you can have a real chess board combined with a fast and accurate chess move input device for your computer. Play with genuine wood against your favorite chess program or an internet opponent, and even broadcast chess games over the Internet. Ideal for tournament presentation. Or let the computer analyze games while playing a human opponent, and automatically store games in the memory of the board while you play, then retrieve the games as PGN later.
Rosewood Chess Board
Selection of chess pieces is very personalized: DGT has selected fine handmade sets to choose from, for use on the electronic board. The classical Staunton model in its most common form has been used at several world championships. All sets come with two Queens for each color.

Best board out there

Expensive but I couldn't be happier with grabbing this bluetooth board for this price. With the current state of the supply chain, you never know when these will run out. The box that it comes in is obnoxiously bulky and isn't easy to move around, the board is heavy but it looks and feels magnificent - the way the pieces slide is satisfying. No issues with Chessbase 16 compatibility.
