I have never been a fan of chess. I played it online a few times and used to play on occasion with one of my uncles, but I always lost interest well before the game was finished. If you like the pace of chess and happen to like photography too, this chess set made using a bunch of DSLR camera lenses will float your boat.

DSLR Lens Chess

The geeks over at LensRentals who entertained us with that lens with 50 UV filters attached last month came up with the idea for this camera lens chess set. As the story goes, a couple workers were in a new warehouse waiting for people to show up to connect some utilities and decided to use some tiles they found to kill some time.

They also had some lenses sitting in the warehouse so the thing that came to mind was a chess set. The white lenses are Canon and the black are Nikon. You can even rent the chess set if you feel the need but it’s not cheap. The lens chess set rents for $9,221 per week and the shipping runs into the thousand-dollar range. One can only imagine how much it would cost to purchase it.
