Wall Mounted Electronic Chess [Project]
posted May 21 2014 12:40.12 by spic0m

Artless Dodger wasn't quite satisfied with his wall mounted chess cause the lack of interactivity, so he took apart an old Fidelity Chess challenger computer from the 80's and rebuilt it as a wall mounted chess computer!

"I was browsing in search of a new project recently and came across a picture of a vertical chess set mounted on a wal and thought how cool it was, as both a great project to build and as a novelty piece of wall art.

I'm fairly fond of chess so decided to give it a go. My first project resulted in the below wall chess. These are wood veneer squares and obviously not electronic. Construction was much simpler and aesthetically very pleasing and in a lot of cases you may want to just go along with that style.

I played a few games on it by using the chess app on my iphone and moving the pieces respectively, but then I started thinking it would be a lot cooler if the wall chess could actually play against me itself rather than me referring to a separate chess computer all the time. I also wanted to keep the overall look of the first board so that meant keeping visual electronics out of site. You really wouldn't know it was an electronic chess if you didn't switch it on.

For the wall chess mark 2 I started researching electronic chess computers."
