100,000 LEGO Robotic Monster Chess: Can Chess Get Any More Complicated?

by


Playing chess is fun, but I’ve never seen a chess board like this! It uses about 100,000 LEGO bricks and the chess board is about 12 feet to each side! Oh yeah, each chess piece is a LEGO robot! Can it get any better?

This Monster Chess comes courtesy of Team Hassenplug. A laptop is used to run and coordinate the robots. Otherwise, it would be complete mayhem. Actually, I wouldn’t mind seeing that, especially when one piece takes down another. Wouldn’t that be cool? One robot LEGO chess piece destroying another with a flaming blue laser? I can dream, can’t I?

The LEGO bricks and mechanisms in this monstrosity are worth $30,000. The Monster Chess board will be on display next weekend at the Brickworld convention in Chicago.

    This is very accurate to a functional Lego version of Wizard’s Chess from Harry Potter, without the violence.
