Checkmate: Wall-Mounted Chess Board

Wall-mounted computerized chess board

Fancy a game of chess? Artless Dodger loves the game and he’s a huge DIY buff. So it comes as no surprise that he chose to create a larger-than-life wall-mounted chess board that you’re supposed to play while standing up. Obviously, the taller player takes the black pieces, since they’re placed on the higher shelves.

The cool thing about Dodger’s chess board is the fact that you can still play, even when you’re by your lonesome. It has a program integrated into the system that “plays” with you so you don’t have to play with yourself (okay, that sounded a bit wrong but…you know what I mean.)

Hit the jump to watch a video of the chess board at play.

Instructions and the entire make process are available on Dodger’s website.
