I have mailed them and they seemed really nice. Asked them about piece recognition etc and they sent a detailed mail, why is it very important. Really looking forward to own one. And the price point is awesome and i wouldn't mind paying more!
They say their pieces are weighted by default. That's awesome!
Here's one on Kickstarter - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1852340281/square-off-worlds-most-evolved-chess-board-ever?ref=nav_search
Haven't backed, but was considering.
Yeah, looks interesting, but looks like they don't do piece recognition.
Had a novag citrine doesn't do piece recognition had very bad experience with it. Can't slide pieces, doesn't register movement well and so on. But the one in the link should be good for casual players!
