DIY Chess Robot

There is so much good in this story of a home built chess robot.  Apart from the chess bit, it uses an arduino to control the robot, and python scripting for software. Throw in a few under the board sensors and the ability to work with any UCI enabled chess program, and you soon see that the whole thing is full of win.
It is the work of 17 year old Oriol Galceran, and he built it as part of a school project! Click on the above link for an overview of the project, and if you want to know more, click on the links in that article.
