3D-Printed Chess Set Transforms Into Robot: Checkmecha

Believe it or not, 3D-printed chess sets are nothing new, but Joseph Larson’s version of it is most certainly novel: a mighty morphin’ chess set. The pieces can be snapped together to form a giant robot that will make Deep Blue shut down in fear. If Interplay thought of this back in the early 80s, I’d still be playing Battle Chess today.

Naturally, the queen and the king form the head and torso. The bishop and rook along with a few pawns form the arms and hands, while the knight and remaining pawns are the feet and legs. Those who have 3D printers can head to Thingiverse to download the necessary files. The rest of you can go beg Larson to start a Kickstarter fundraiser for his chess set.
