NOVAG SAVANT

With David Kittingers famous Mychess program!

The World’s largest commercial LCD-Chessboard with SENSOR TOUCH TECHNOLOGY. Easily visible chess pieces with Backlight for optimal viewing pleasure in all room conditions.

 

MAIN NOVAG SAVANT MODEL 813 GAME CHARACTERISTICS

 

You can now concentrate more on your game because all you need to do is to touch the pieces with your finger on the LCD Chessboard to move them.

You can connect the NOVAG CHESS PRINTER and also the NOVAG QUARTZ CHESS CLOCK to your NOVAG SAVANT allowing you to print your moves on thermal paper and to simulate tournament conditions while you play. The program was expandable from 24K to 48K.

NOTE

Unfortunately the LCD Chess dries out after a few years of use, therefore there may no longer be any working NOVAG SAVANT  left in the World today.
