Chess in the Dark with LED Chess Sets

I came across this LED Chess Set from Cool Stuff Express for $89.99 and another from Hi-Tec Art for $39.99. I should have recognized that such products were inevitable when I read about how to make your own LED chess set (using an inexpensive set made of glass), as well as a "simple version" of the same concept that supposedly takes only four hours to build. Pretty cool for playing chess in the dark, if you have either the money or the time.

I wonder if you they are some pocket-size magnetic ones, that way you can roll-up in bed, and play some chess in the dark of the night, without worrying about pieces falling all over the place or the need to sit up straight!

I am not sure you could get a pocket one that was also magnetic, getting the magnets and the LEDS inside would be tricky. It probably could be done, but maybe not at a price that was commercially viable.
