Playing chess against an on-screen computer is one thing, but it just doesn’t match the realistic feel of a live chess game. By programming a Lynxmotion robotic arm in Python, this chess player created his own robotic opponent. The Python library allows the robotic arm to intelligently move the chess pieces across the board.
As the video shows, the robot is not only moving the chess pieces but it is actually planning the moves in response to its opponent’s moves. Unfortunately, he doesn’t show us the details of the project but we’ll post an update when more information is posted.
