Wireless Remote Chess

With references to the original Mechanical Turk, Youtube user FunGowRightNow12 and his chess playing partner have documented how they have created a remote chess board using an Arduino powered magnet system.

"Our goal is to allow people to connect and play board games with each other from anywhere in the world. By combining a physical board with modern technology, we hope to bring a more interpersonal experience that is not achieved through a computer screen."


At the moment FunGowRightNow12 and friends are a little elusive in providing more details on who they are or if the project will ever have a larger teardown (a glimpse into the internals can be seen in the video below). Instructable user Max Justicz however has picked up the baton and provided a step-by-step guide for creating a similar system that can be viewed here.
