The Elektor ‘Intelekt’ Chess Computer (1981)
Do you play chess? Are you looking for an opponent who is always available … never gets impatient … plays a reasonably strong game ... and even allows you to cheat a little, if you really want to? If so, it’s time you met Intelekt! So much for the advertising blurb. The above text piece comes verbatim from Elektor magazine April 1981, and the sole reason for reprinting it here is the happy coincidence that the pristine prototype of the ‘Intelekt’ chess computer was not thrown away back in June 2006 when Elektor vacated its ‘Beek’ offices to move to Castle Limbricht, also in the Netherlands.
