Aim

Solution

Chess is our favorite office game. This AR app gives a new life to the classic game, moving it to ‘new dimension’. With a cool 3D design and improved functionality, it’s now more realistic than ever.

We’ve used the ARKit in surface recognition (any contrasting horizontal surface can be used for chess board projection). Besides, we’ve taken into account the main complaints and wishes on the chess app market. Unlike the majority on the App Store, our app allows:

  • taking back moves (if you accidentally drop the piece on the wrong square, now there is an option to correct it);
  • automatically turning the board around when playing;
  • repositioning a board during the game.
