Want to play chess with your friend who’s halfway around the world? You could do that online, but what if you want to use a real chess board? With this DIY chess robot, you can do just that.

This robot can move the chess pieces around the board and is able to rotate the board up to 180 degrees, moving the pieces within reach of the robotic arm. With this as your arm, you’ll be able to play chess using a social networking service, and the moves that your friend makes will be replicated on your chess board. You can also hook it up to chess playing software if you are by yourself and play against it.
