Tempest is a new chess clock that uses the power of your phone and providing a tilting stand that is easy to trigger when your move is complete. Constructed using premium leather and requiring no battery thanks to the companion smartphone application that is available for iOS and Android devices. The precision chess clock can be used for different styles of chess and has a wide variety of different settings depending on your preferred game. Out of the box, Tempest lets you choose between two elegant chess clock face designs offering both Digital or Analog.
Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the inventive project from roughly $36 or £27 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 55% off the recommended retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way. If the Tempest campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and fulfillment progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around .
