Chessnut EVO – The Tesla of Electronic Chess Sets

Sit back my friends, and get cozy as we take a look together at the Chessnut EVO! Although still in preproduction stage, the Chessnut EVO is a very promising chess board that seems to pack all the features you can expect out of a chess set. Moreover, there is a considerable number of features that are not seen in any other chess sets that I am sure many people will find exciting, and practical. In order not to miss on any important features of the board, be sure to watch the video entirely! Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Thank you for taking the time of demoing all capabilities.
    What is the battery life of the EVO? Did you have to charge it often?

  2. Very interesting board indeed. When will it be available ? Will it be avaible in a brown color ? Thanks for the video 🙂

  3. Why is the board set up wrong???? Seems a simplistic mistake for a chess channel???? So weird for a chess player? Makes it seem very sad.

  4. I was sold up until he played online…it took quite a bit to recognize the movement of the piece.

  5. Hopefully the analysis and evaluation are disable during online play?

  6. Screen needs to be flippable its too inconvenient to move each individual piece to change sides

  7. I am currently deciding between the DGT Centaur, ChessUp and even the Gochess 4XR. I am looking for a digital board that will be used foremost for practice. The ChessUp is currently on top of my list because of all the training features that’s inbuilt in it. I like the DGT Centaur as well, but I’m very intrigued by the chessnut evo.

  8. The choice of Android … There really is no other choice except a base Linux system (Android is Linux + Google, just like iOS is BSD + Apple). The Android OS is far more open and inviting to developers and third parties and using it eliminates the headache of having to reinvent the wheel. Plus it allows for embedding Android applications like perhaps Whitepawn, etc. instead of developing special layers.

    I.e. if you are going to merge the phone and the board, Android is the correct way to do that.

  9. So when you put it on your lap. where do you put the captured pieces? On the couch, in your pocket. or?

  10. Holy crap…..I'm 10 minutes in and I can see why this is an hour video.

    I'm sure this guy has great information, but he rambles without direction just wandering between random observations and then circling back again and again. Scripts are going to be your best friend, dude.

  11. Bit premature with the replaceable battery comment. It's not 🙄😔

  12. The Tesla of chessboards… so bland and featureless?

  13. Small video suggestion to bring that aperture down a few stops on shots like the 8 min mark so the whole thing is in focus and not just part of the screen

  14. Bluetooth headphone connectivity? Just backed this, super excited.

  15. Does anyone happen to know the difference between evo 1 & 2? I can’t discern from the kickstarter page,

  16. Fascinating innovation. It's expensive, though. I guess it would be a great idea if the android tablet interface could be sold as a standalone app for those of us with other chessnut products. That would really be the icing on the cake.

  17. I like everything I see except for the non-weighted plastic pieces. and the small size of the squares.
    Please give me a 2.25 square, heavy wooden pieces version.
    Also question… can you have an option for two player where lets say white when touching a piece the board shows all the available (and best) move options, but player BLACK gets no help to show available moves?

  18. 2 player evaluate? with one player evaluate on and one player evaluate off?

  19. Lots of bots comments here. Ps. This board is stupid. A giant screen and a supposedly chess AI? All to be outdated within a year of release. And the board is way too small to begin with.

  20. Waouuu… Thanks a lot for this ! Regards from France !

  21. Computer chess has come a long way since "Boris" was let loose on the public in the late 70s.

  22. Seems like a great product for serious chess hobbyist.

  23. Looks wonderful, expecting it to be super expensive.

  24. One question the screen is enough big but i have some eye problems too read small caractères. May i connect a galaxy tab s9 ultra too ? In case off? Or for me the Best option is too buy the model without the screen thanks in advance for your precious help

  25. Any news about my previous question? In addition the Software and voice are only in englisch ? Regards from switzerland french part

  26. so if you play online you have to move both your own and the opponent's pieces right? what happens if you mess up and the position on the board doesn't match the data online? also seems like the online players would have a massive advantage on time :/. good looking board though

  27. Can you practice chess openings with it?

  28. I ordered it through your link. If you use newevo as a discount, they cut the price to $509. Anyway, can the engine training app allow you to load, say Rubinstein games, and play against that engine?

  29. Really cool product. I recently purchased the 15.7 inch Millennium Mephisto Phoenix, and I absolutely love it. So beautiful. If something inspires you to play, and train more, then it's all the worth it.

    Like how there are more options at differing price points.

  30. Well, I'm not impressed by Teslas so …..

  31. Guys, i need help. I wanna get a chessboard for myself that can move pieces on its own (robotic arms) but i am not sure if it has many levels of strength. I wanna be able to simulate a play with real person kind of feel, ya know, since the missus aint interested in the game. But i see so many other computer chess boards!

  32. I'd like to play a 2 player hot-seat game with my friend and then let the game analyze it or make the review. Any idea how I can achieve that?

  33. Thank you again for this precious video.
    I have now my EVO since 2 days!
    But i need some help please.
    => How to: create two accounts: one for me and another for my sun, for example.
    => Also I don't know how to install apps like Whitepawn or ChessDojo … It's seems an Android system wich is not open.
    Can you help or orient me please me please?
    Thanks a lot in advance.

  34. The Chestnut EVO looks like the overall best. But there are no straight forward way to order one. Amazon does not display the exact title; at $700, who will buy one, not knowing exactly what one is buying! Nor is the Chestnut company being straight 51:08 forward.

  35. I dont know if anyone has told you, but your referral link in the description is missing a slash, So there is no use being made of it. I'm not sure if there is some incentive on your end for people clicking that, but I thought I'd let you know.

  36. Definetly loving this, just sad there is no notation! Wish they could implement the notation digitally and have it switch by itself when you switch sides


  38. I am unsubscribing. Trying returning ChessNut after you purchase it… tsk tsk tsk.. good luck.

  39. Cringe 850$ for a board that can't move pieces

  40. Hopefully the can figure out how to make computerized toilet paper, computerized pencils, computerized rocks.
