Chess has finally been brought into the 21st century, fit
entertain the masses who never really understood how to
play. Gone is the banality of the coin toss; banish stone,
paper, scissors to the annuls of history.
Simply choose your colour and open the box. Hey presto,
the winner is
decided as the completed game is seen.
Each time the box is closed, the pieces reset themselves
and the chess computer plays a new game.
The more adventurous might attempt to figure out what
the final moves of the game were in the vain hope of
salvaging some dignity from their arbitrary defeat, or
gloat to try to prolong the instantaneous victory.
The deluxe version features a reverse function that will
allow you to see the game unplayed. This exclusive set
has the extra functionality of allowing a player to play a
normal game against the computer
Wigners's Friend paradox
Open the box .... [8th of 7, Sep 01 2009]
||Schrödinger's annotation - aint gonna do it.
||You can already play Computer V Computer chess, well you can on the version of it I have on my Macintosh. For it to be truly "Schrödingeresque", it needs to do more than this. (for my liking anyway, but I'm very grumpy tonight because I got my hand burnt)
||// it needs to do more than this //
||Agreed. There needs to be a dead cat in there somewhere.
||Will you be able to play chess against Wigner's's Friend ?
||//I'm not sure.//
Does that mean Heisenberg is playing too?
||Possibly..... there's a measure of uncertainty about that.
||With heisenberg, You'd either know whether you won, or at which game.
