In the world of chess computers, the new Chess Link Module (= CL-Module), which can be connected to the MILLENNIUM Exclusive chess board with fully automatic piece recognition or to "The King Performance", opens up hitherto unknown possibilities. The CL-Module features both a USB port as well as a Bluetooth receiver. This being an open system, the specifications are released to any interested developers worldwide. The MILLENNIUM interface code can be integrated into any GUI, e.g. Android or Apple iOS smartphones and tablets, as well as Windows or Apple computers.
The MILLENNIUM CL-Module allows users to connect a variety of mobile or stationary devices to the MILLENNIUM sensor board and play against preinstalled programs or numerous Winboard or UCI engines, compete against opponents from all over the world on the internet, use external chess databases, saving as many chess games as one likes and have them analyzed automatically, and much more.
A convenient Android App for using high-powered Winboard or UCI engines (e.g. Komodo, Stockfish, ...) is included free of charge. The famous world-class program HIARCS (for iPhone or iPad) is available for free update (for already installed Apps). The HIARCS-App is not included but available online in the Apple Store. Playing for example on an Apple iPad Pro, HIARCS archieves an incredible playing strength of over 3100 Elo. Fortunately, it can automatically adapt to the user's level of play and show his ELO rating.
