Wow! This is great news! Thanks for sharing that Bryan!
Can we dream that they could come up with a model featuring piece recognition like the Tasc? I mean they have the technology, right?
It would probably be too expensive and I wouldn't be able to afford it but I would sure like to see that!

Hello Brian

Many thanks for that information. Let us hope they do more than think about it. There must be a market for a high spec wooden board chess computer. With the Mephisto Senator the only one to beat.

You are right. They are just rebadging the old designs, programs and components, and have done so for 10 plus years.

All the best
Mike

Dear Brian,

Thank you for your email.

We are in fact thinking about producing a wooden chess computer, but we do not want to advertise it yet as the timeline has not been decided on.

We are sad to hear that you believe that we are merely re-badging our products.  All our “Star” models are completely newly developed models and cannot be compared to the old models with the exception of the name (e.g. Sapphire) and the Star Diamond housing.  We decided to keep latter in order to establish a strong link to the old model, which is a classic in the Novag chess computer line.

Yours truly,

Perfect Technology Ltd
