Square Off: An Ambitiously Designed Arduino Powered Chess Set #ArduinoMonday #Arduino

2 0

Impressive project from Team InfiVention up on Hackster.io!

Here is our journey so far:

3 years back we started this project for a Social cause. We took up a challenge to build a chess board for visually impaired, so that they too can play chess like you and me. We designed the model but we didn’t have the money to create a prototype. Now the task in hand was to arrange for funds.

That’s when we thought of an idea. We started participating in various tech contests to win the prize money so as to build the prototype.

And guess what? We managed to collect the required money and then we finally created a prototype. We were really nervous about it as it had to be tested. The chairman of national association of blind who himself was visually impaired tested it himself tested the board and it worked. That day was one of the happiest days .

50-06Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Very slick! Are there photos/videos of the mechanism underneath?
    How does it detect the human moves?

    I’d like to build a knick-knack wall rack that’s also a playable remote chess board, but I have been too busy with other projects. 🙁
