LabVIEW + NXT Robot Chess

Recommended Posts

This Lego Mindstorms project is really cool. Watch the whole video to see the 3D-version. I apologize if this has already been posted.

I agree that it's very cool, although when you look at the numbers shown under the videos the picture is not quite as bright (and I can't help but feeling that it would have been cooler if the pieces controlled their movement on their own by coordinating with each other rather than being controlled from a central location).

It would be cooler if the pieces could jump each other (e.g. Knight).

I would like to also see an impressive KO when a piece is taken :)

Super cool!

I've been looking for some ideas for all NXT bricks we've got sitting around here. (...I'm pretty sure most of them still work)

I thought about a Rube Goldburg-ish crazy coffee roaster, grinder, brewer. ( I love my java! ) But then the boss got a superdooper machine for the office. It doesn't roast.....but I'm not sure everyone would appreciate that. Considering I like a very dark roast, I think the smoke in the hall might become a problem.

Maybe some kinda battle bots that are supposed to have pieces fly off etc? Lego pieces only....and no glue! See how tough you can build one.

Sounds like Battle Chess (and this bit include the Python reference):
