This Monster Chess set was created by Team Hassenplug for the Brickworld convention which takes place this weekend in Chicago. The set measures 12 feet on each side and is controlled with a laptop. The team used 100,000 LEGO blocks to construct the board and pieces. The cost to build, including the robotic parts came in at $30,000. This is the only way I want to play chess from now on. Sorry iPhone.
