GAVON Portable Chess System

Post by mephisto » Sat Feb 08, 2014 8:18 am

Josu Bergara Ede from Spain has developed a new portable chess system based on the Raspberry Pi called Gavon.
Details and screenshots are available on my web site that can be found here,
http://usbchessboard.yolasite.com
Gavon enables you to play chess without connecting either to a PC or monitor.
When the Raspberry Pi boots it will automatically load the Gavon chess program.
Via the LCD screen and selection buttons, you can select the engine, level and game mode.
Move entry is via the the selection buttons.
Game engines available are.
Faile v. 1.2
Fruit v. 2.1
Rodent v. 2.1
Greko v. 10.3
Ivanhoe 999946f
Stockfish v. 3.32
If you are interested in building your own system in kit form
or would like to buy the system complete then please contact Josu.

I assume that author of this impressive piece of hardware+software meant Rodent 1.2 :), since 2.1 is probably two years away
