Rather than play the computer chess, why not make a chess set out of the computer!

This is version 0.1 (beta). If I can get enough Pentium "586" chips, I'd like to make a regulation size chess set.

Any constructive criticism would be appreciated!

Step 1: Chess Board

The board is the underside of a mother board, and 32 black microprocessor chips.  This creates the colors Green vs Black.  Each chip was attached with epoxy.

The principal hardware was left on the bottom side.  Legs for elevation are bolts press-fitted into the chassis mount holes.

All subsequent pieces were painted green or black, if necessary, to indicate side.
