Design & development

a chess game adapted for the visually impaired      

We innovate together to allow people with visual impairments to be able to practice chess more comfortably and progress.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Thursday, April 18, 2019 took place the demonstration of the chess board facilitating the practice of chess for the visually impaired and blind, organized at Place Clemenceau in Hyères. Jean-Luc Gamba has developed a chess board to facilitate the practice of the game of chess for the visually impaired and blind. This 100% French innovation was carried out in Toulon with the FabLab of the Maison du Numérique et de l'Innovation, with the support of the engineering school ISEN and TVT (Toulon Var Technology). This chess game is a valuable tool to make chess accessible to all. Remember that Chess is the only sport that allows the disabled and able-bodied to play together, including during official competitions.
