Chess: Automated Board
« on: January 08, 2018, 01:26:37 pm »
There is a kick starter project for a chess board where the pieces are moved using a magnet.

This project reminds me of Fidelity Phantom Chess (as described here...

The Phantom's are very collectable but 1980s tech... I'm quite intrigued by the new version  (and amazed they aren't being pursued by the original patent owner).

Does anyone have one?  I would be interested in a tear-down/photo of the mechanism.

Thanks in advance


I also stumbled across this...   very fun
