Chess for Glass

Post by abik » Fri Aug 08, 2014 4:17 pm

Besides Chess for Android, I have been working on another project, which has been officially released today!

Chess for Glass is Glassware that runs directly on Glass. You can enter moves by simply saying the moves, or by using the touch pad. Other features include a choice in board color, spoken move announcements, and the ability to import any third party chess engine to replace the friendly built-in Java engine. Chess for Glass recognizes Chessbase compatible engines that are installed as other application on the same Glass device, and supports both the popular UCI and XBoard/WinBoard protocols.

There is no direct download in the classical sense. To install Glassware on a Glass device, simply go to the app's link (in this case, the link under "get it on Glass") and set it "on". Assuming you are logged on with the account associated with the device, the application is then automatically pushed to the Glass device.

Hey Aart...
wow awesome stuff!

Question:
In your personal opinion (not as representative of Google!),
do you think it's ok to wear Glass to play chess or analyze games while I'm having dinner with my wife?
(or maybe like when we go to visit her parents?)

I don't think anyone will notice you saying things like:

ok glass
knight
from g1
to f3

with each move :D

For those cases, there is the touch pad :-)
