Forget about bringing chess to the computer, it’s time to bring the computer to chess. Instructable user CrLz created this awesome Micro Processor Chess Set which is made using an assortment of computer parts. The board itself is made using the underside of a mother board, and 32 black microprocessor chips.
The creator stresses that this is a work in progress, referring to this bad boy as 0.1 beta, but he eventually hopes to gather enough Pentium 586 chips to make a regulation-sized board. For those of you who are interested in making your own, CrLz was nice enough to lay out what parts were used for which pieces.
