Imagine building a chess set 12′ on a side, with each piece its own robot. Oh yeah, and make it all out of Lego. Team Hassenplug’s Monster Chess packs 100,000 elements and 32 NXT bricks, and uses a laptop running a chess program to coordinate the robots. Want to see the game in person? It will be on display at next weekend’s Brickworld convention in Chicago. [Via The NXTStep]
