A Smart Chessboard to play online with friends
Due to the pandemic, many people have been forced to stay indoors much more often, which means missing out on the usual social events, including sports and tournaments. Even playing a simple game of chess hasn’t been feasible anymore, until now. Lewis of DIY Machines designed and built a smart chess board that allows you to play normally, but remotely.
The chessboard allows a graphic display of the opponent’s moves, thanks to the addressable RGB LEDs placed under the top. These LEDs together with some buttons are controlled by an Arduino Nano that communicates via UART communication with a Raspberry Pi3 which manages the communication against the opponent remotely and displays the menu and the score on an OLED display.
