I just received from DGT a new gadget which is called DGT CUBE.This is the latest gadget offered by DGT is 2.5 x 2.5 inches and weight about 100 grammes smaller then your palm.This Cube basically a timer for various board games such as scrabble,poker ,snake and ladder game ,monopoly ,chess and many more as the DGT claimed.
This Cube is a square shape has 6 face each with own timer and color.Its like to have 6 chess clock in a one unit. What make the cube special is you dont need to press any button (the start and stop button is there) to start just rotate the side of the next player to move upward and it will detect the movement of your action and will stop your time and next player timing will starts.
On the other hand I am not sure wether this is practical in chess tournament.Because you have to twist the cube in order to stop the time.But in other board game like scrabble or poker its practical gadget.Anyway 6 players can uses the Cube as timer for their game.
The Cube has five different setting, game timer,move timer ,move timer + save ,up count and turn counter.You can also set individual time settings.This Cube uses 2 battery and 24 month warranty and €40.00 or about RM170 if anyone interested contact me.
