It is a chess set designed for children. Its difference from the other set is that all chess pieces illuminate the squares where they can move by laser light. When pressed on the chess piece, the route it can go in the area in front of it is visualised with rounds. Whichever direction the piece is turned, it illuminates the route in that specific direction. By this way, children can learn the movement of pieces visually. There is a battery in the slots under the pieces.
